Based on the updated entry lists, it looks as though several of the elite athletes have decided to pull out of the meeting, as the likes of Shaunae Miller-Uibo, Noah Lyles, and Wayde van Niekerk are no longer part of the relay squads that were re-entered.

Despite the weather delay, the athletes are still looking forward to competing when the competition begins again. Several of the competitors have admitted that they’ve already hit the reset button.

EARLIER REPORT

Currently, the meeting schedule has been placed on hold because the area is still under a lightning threat. The meeting organisers are monitoring the situation and will make announcements once there are further updates.

At the moment, though, we already know that there will be a revised schedule once everything is cleared up in Gainesville.

In fact, the goal is to resume competition at 3:15 p.m. with the women’s 4×100 relay, while all hurdle races will be contested as finals against time.
