At the Paris Diamond League, Nijel Amos bounced back to winning ways. Are things shaping up for him before the World Champs? Some upsets happened in the Men's Javelin, 110m Hurdles, 3000m Steeplechase and women's 1500m. Do we think they happened by a stroke of luck, or does it signify that things could change ahead of the World Championships? Can the likes of Elaine Thompson, Sam Kendricks, Mutaz Barshim and Chris Taylor extend their unbeaten run to the World Championships? What about a Will Claye vs Taylor rivalry in the Triple Jump? And with Pichardo back, will things be any different? What is happening to Renaud Lavillenie who seems to have lost his confidence? We also saw Ramil Guliyev's surprise emergence in the 200m?

We will also talk about Ryan's Crouser's best Shot Put throw in the world in 14 years;
From the Jamaican Trials, Elaine Thompson won the 100m with a new WL and has opted out of the 200m. What does this portend? Who is the likely women's 200m Champion in London? Yohan Blake won the sprint double. Can he make the podium twice in London? Seems Veronica Campbell-Brown's best days are over as she didn't compete due to injury. What can we say about her career?
