There's regular athletics back on our screens, which is heaven (cheerless cheerleaders in Lievin aside). With Euros just around the corner, we take a deep - far deeper than planned, as per - dive into the performances we've enjoyed so far.
From the absurdly talented Grant Holloway, to the fact that Laura Muir ran 3:59 and was beaten by six seconds. From the contrasting styles of two huge middle distance talents - Elliot Giles and Jakob Ingebrigsten - to the gift that keeps on giving: the pole vault. Oh: and the handful of world records we've seen. There are those, too.
The crowning jewel this week is Claire's chat with Trayvon Bromell, who is back and better than ever. His world-leading 6.48 marks a return to form for the 2015 World medallist, who explains the struggles he's faced to be back at the summit of sprinting, and what motivates him each and every day. Bromell's passion is infectious, and we're thrilled that the men's 100 metres - for the first time since Bolt - is exciting once more, and full of Bayo's three Cs: competition, charisma, and consistency. Might we see a Tumbleweed 1-2-3, come Tokyo?
We also welcome along Sarah, the newest member of the team (spoiler alert: it's just Jody repeatedly forgetting Claire's name...), and apologise for the audio issues: we know there's some crackling here, and much more background noise than we'd like. Won't happen again.
