With lesss than five days before the World Indoor Championships, athletes are doing their final honing for the Worlds. Some fine races here and some athletes who will play big parts in the four days in Birmingham.

The 2018 IAAF World Indoor Tour had some great moments, and the meet in Glasgow had several of them, from the 60 meters won by Bingtian Su, to the 60 meters won by Marie-Jose Ta Lou, to the 60 meter hurdles for women and 60 meter hurdles for men.

Isaac Makwala runs 19.77 and 43.92 for the 200m and 400m, respectively in the Meeting Madrid. Pretty darn impressive. A fine long jump for men and a fine triple jump for women, as athletes build up towards London 2017.

The last few weeks of June had some amazing performances in the US. The results in this report have been compiled by Carles Baronet. Thanks, once again to our Catalan friend for taking the time to edit these reports and compile them as well!

This was a meet for top athletes to sharpen up the week before the 2017 USATF Championships in Sacramento. Fast 800 meters, 1,500 meters, and 3000 meter steeplechase. Charlene Lipsey is one of the highlights with a nice win and a big PB over 1,500 meters.

Sifan Hassan has had a very busy few weeks. On May 26, Sifan HIssan took third in the Pre Classic 5000 meters, running a fine 14:41.24, a NR and the European leader. It was near perfect conditions, but, in truth, as Hassan was about sixteen seconds back from Dibaba's record attempt. Hassan stayed within herself, running a fine race and showing that her fitness has continued to improve.

Less than two weeks later, on 8 June, Sifan Hissan ran a spectacular 1,500 meter in Rome, running away from a world class field, and winning by four seconds, with her fine 3:56.22! This was Hissan's fastest time since 17 July 2015, when, in the Monaco DL, she ran 3:56.05, finishing second to Genzebe Dibaba, who set the WR that day of 3:50.7.

On June 11, Sifan Hissan continued to show her fine shape, running and winning the 1,500 meters in front of her home crowd, at the FBK Games in Hengelo, The Netherlands. Hissan again dominated the race, winning by 4.75 seconds, running 3:56.14. This puts Sifan Hissan just .09 off her National Record.

This is fine middle distance running, and Sifan Hissan is showing that her time training in Portland, under the watchful eyes of Alberto Salazar and Peter Julian has been a good move. Hissan is racing much more aggresively and with much more confidence.

Hissan's medal-less performance in Rio was a huge disappointment, and 2017 has started with a short campaign indoors in the US and her focus is obviously on London 2017 in less than two months.

The FBK Hengelo meeting always has fine performances, and this meet was highlighted with Ethiopian performances meant to show fitness for their selectors prior to the London 2017 Champs. Athletes such as Dafne Schippers (11.08) and Sandi Morris (4.65m) in the 100 meters and pole vault.

The other two major performances were the high jump leader by Maria Lasitseken, who cleared 2.04 meters PB, EL and WL. In the men's long jump. Luvo Manyonga continued his amazing leaps, with a fine 8.62 meter leap into a legal wind.
