-------------------------------------------------- --------------- GOLDEN LEAGUE / In Montecarlo the formula of the new circuit is confirmed as successful Kipketer regains the 800 The returning Danish (1'43 "74) catches Longo who dies in the final : 1'44 "40 At his seasonal debut the former Kenyan overtook the Venetian on the straight which equaled the staff. The 100 in Boldon (9 "92) on the newly found Bailey (9" 96). Jones and Johnson fly: 10 "72 and 43" 96 FROM OUR REPORT MONTECARLO - The magical night of Monte Carlo, which confirmed that the Golden League is a perfect formula, unfortunately did not inspire Andrea Longo, who was the protagonist of the 800, but he fenced off in the final, where Wilson Kipketer re-emerged in a great way,released from the tunnel of malaria and able to defend all its titles. This time the policeman did not do anything tactically wrong. We just got the impression that he hasn't disposed of the work done this month and he lacked the brilliance. His stride was heavy already after 500 meters, but he struggled until he felt the lead muscles. The 1'44 "40 with which he equaled the staff is positive, Wednesday in Zurich should already be better. Kipketer made his debut with 1'43" 74, controlling the desperate comeback of Ndururi (1'43 "80) . Ato Boldon lined up the jet men. His training brother Greene remained in the stands because he did not find the economic agreement with the organizers and he did not regret his absence,indeed, its success almost tasted like revenge. Boldon, jewel of Trinidad, needed this success and had been waiting for Fredericks for some time, who died immediately and suffered the most burning defeat, because he put him out of the sprint for the final jackpot. But the Namibian was also forced to surrender to Donovan Bailey (9 "96), who is returning to the very high standard of two years ago. Boldon with 9" 92 dropped below 10 "for the fifth time, while the Canadian It is in progress. In Zurich next week there will be some good ones, because Greene is determined to run even for free. Marion Jones for now is on another planet. Wednesday in Stockholm he had suddenly forfeited because she realized she was exaggerating,he risked getting intoxicated with fatigue, so he invented an excuse and avoided going to the stadium. Here in Monte Carlo the heat has helped her to explode all the power she has accumulated in every fiber and which she manages to control perfectly during the race. + impressive how, after starting, it manages to reach maximum speed. From forty meters on, the other specialists look like stiff rag dolls, while her action flows smoothly. For now the others have to resign themselves to the nightmare of the vision of her back running away. This time he touched again 10 "72. + The strongest ever. Michael Johnson is back to grind his opponents, only he can go under 44" (43 "96) and the young American lions will have to wait a few seasons before reliving the taste of success. On the lap of the track among women Charity Opara continues to dictate the law, which remains among the elite of those who dream of a million dollars. With 49 "88 he imposed his law. Ordinary commitments for Hicham El Guerrouj and Haile Gebrselassie respectively in 1500 (3'28" 37) and 3000 (7'25 "54), the gap between these is too great two champions and the others, who are forced to act as extras. They both race to win the Grand Prix and the billionaire jackpot. In the 3000 for a few laps we glimpsed the shadow of a great, Noureddine Morceli, who now seems empty of energy. Gabriela Szabo is a wren, she walks a little over 40 kilos, she has thethe impression that a breath of wind could overturn it, but when it gets on the track it transforms. Svetlana Masterkova knows something about it, who saw her parading alongside in the last meters of 1500. The Russian was running to try to reach the Golden League jackpot, but the little Romanian spread her hopes, also scoring the best time of the year: 3'56 "97. Kim Batten tactically interprets the 400 obstacles in a different way than in the past. In 1995 he won the world title and signed the world title with 52" 61, then he experienced two strange seasons and now he is reborn. His racing conduct is smarter. He does not burn up treasures of energy in the start, but he controls his instincts and begins to really push after the fifth obstacle. In curves you drink the opponents and then hold up well on the straight linearrival. So last night she went very close to her record: 52 "74. But, in the future, she will have to pay close attention to the Moroccan Bidouane, who grows like her from race to race (53" 23). Bryan Bronson continues his cruise towards the million dollars, in the 400 obstacles for now there is no one able to put him in difficulty. He limited himself to winning in 47 "93. Perhaps the Russian Mashchenko could give him a displeasure, but he runs too much to raise dollars and in the end he always finds himself out of energy in the final. The big news of the 100 obstacles is the Nigerian Alozie. + Really unleashed. Excellent technically, she is faster than the other specialists and for this reason her 12 "44 is the best performance of the year. Bad night for Jonathan Edwards,who, conditioned by the pain in his left heel, entered three nulls and therefore did not qualify for the three final jumps. The billionaire dream fades for him too. Fair proof of the Bradamante, 1.88 in the high, not very brilliant Di Pardo and Carosi in the 3.000 hedges. Gianni Merlo
