Stuart Weir writes about the @GreatCityGames, held in Newcastle/Gateshead, #greatcitygames, #greatruncompany,...

The full name of the city is significant as the track events were south of river Tyne and two field events, women's long jump and men's Pole Vault, north of the river. The women's long jump provided the most bizarre result of the day - if not the year - with Lorraine Ugen, Ksenija Balta (Estonia )and Jazmin Sawyers all jumping 6.46 with Ugen winning on countback. A bemused Ugen, said of the competition: "I kind of like these because they're quite fun. You just get to bring the crowd in and have a fun competition. I wasn't expecting everyone to jump the same distance! I've never had a competition like that before. It was still fun nonetheless". She did remind me of the 2017 Diamond League final which Ivana Spanovic won from Ugen, with the top 5 all jumping 6.61-6.70 but three jumpers registering exactly the same distance, that is something else!
