Fantasy League / Zurich

There has been little to no action in the World Athletics Tour over the last two weeks, so I have not updated standings. There was significant action, however, as the European Championships and African Championships were both held. These probably ought to factor in the fantasy league scoring, and they do but only indirectly--they are selection meets for the World Cup, which does score in the league and rather heavily.

Tommorrow is the Weltklasse im Zurich, the "Olympics in one night" and the fourth stop on the Golden League. A quick summary of how it's all played out so far...

In contention for the big Golden League jackpot:
Asafa Powell, Jeremy Wariner, Sanya Richards, Turinesh Dibaba

In contention for smaller jackpot:
those above plus Keninese Bekele, Susanna Kallur, Blanka Vlasic

Selected for World Cup:
all the men save Bershawn Jackson, Dwight Phillips, Justin Gatlin, Brad Walker, Ladji Doucoure
all the women save Blanka Vlasic, Michelle Perry, Tirunesh Dibaba, Meseret Defar, Ejagayehu Dibaba, Veronica Campbell, Christine Arron
