Bye Bye Byes & Zurich, 5th Ave Records & History, Pregnancy, Porn and Cooper Teare

12 days ago

The Diamond League came to an end with a festival in Zurich that saw a massive shot by Joe Kovacs, world leaders by Jakob Ingebrigtsen and Emmanuel Korir, and statistically the fastest 100m run by Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

Three days later Laura Muir set a course record and Jake Wightman threepeated at the NB 5th Avenue Mile. Kenenisa Bekele tuned up for the London Marathon. Does he have another miracle at age 40?

Plus Cooper Teare is officially in Bowerman and not happy with Jonathan Gault, Boston needs a sponsor, Elle St. Pierre is pregnant and Rojo is Rojo.
