Athletics Ireland deservedly copping a bit of flack for taking the two shotputters but not Luke McCann or Kate Veal when both had been invited based on rankings.

Similar administration wankery in Australia where their 1500m champ Abbey Caldwell who has the standard wasn't picked. Nick Bideau in the firing line as his role of coach, agent, selector for Aussie Athletics. He represents all three girls selected.

Here we go for Eugene..soft enough programme for Day 1.

The 4x400m mixed is off tonight at 19.56 irish time.

Becker, Adeleke, O'Donnell, Raftery.

Definety a stronger team than in tokyo so they will be hopeful. The final would be at stupid o'clock tonoght.

Killarney man Dave Kenny in the 20k walk at 23.10 or something.

Womens 10k Sunday and Mens 10k Saturday and sunday are on at watchable times. 23:00 or so

The 100m are on over the weekend too but late into the night

The build up to this worlds has been low key.

Probably because its not on RTE.

A bit of Controversy so far with Nigel Amos the oft injured gold medalist/DJ and 800m runner getting popped for PEDs

Dozens of athletes are stuck with no visa which is a major fuck up by World Athletics/USATF.

Kenyan 100m fella Ferdinand Omanyanala the highest profile but he's sorted now
