    The number of female 400m runners (and other athletes & coaches) being really openly suspicious of Naser's run on social media really caught my eye. A lot of them have raced her and will do so again - Bold to be so open...

    I thought 2015/16 had broken Kat. Happy to be proved wrong. Mike Holmes did a wonderful job nurturing her talent.

    "I think she's campaigning to have it changed anyway so it should be easier by then"

    Gonna be harder to do that when you're not World Champion of course....

    "I was wondering about the Tokyo schedule ... A 400 heat before aiming to beat DASHER in the evening, not ideal."

    And a hopefully fully fit Thompson and Schippers. And Angelus and Bryant. Then we get to DAS.

    Good luck with that SMU.

    Agree on the SP particularly. She has the physique and power in her lower body to be throwing a long way.

    Privilege to be watching tonight. Great stuff Naser, Miller-U, Kat and Kaul.

    I think she’ll also believe she can get over 14m/45m and that she has a chunk of time to gain back over the 200m. She looks much stronger in the legs and that has helped, but her confidence and attitude change was key. Shame about Thiam’s injury, because you just know some will say it was a hollow victory, like Dina - but you can only beat who’s there and Thiam has never scored so highly in a major champs.

    Will also put pressure on Thiam over the winter. Does she get her elbow looked at properly or manage it and look to work on her jumps to mitigate a loss of form in her throws? The 300 point gain she used to have looks unlikely to be coming back anytime soon without surgery

    On KJT's amazing gold.... That 6981 NR points total would have beaten Thiam when she was fully fit, let alone one with a knobbled elbow.

    It is also the highest points total at a major championships since Carolina Kluft broke the 7000 point barrier for the 2nd time at a WC, in the 2007 Worlds, and is the fourth highest points score at a World Championships ever (JJK - 7128 2nd best score in Hept history - Rome '87, Kluft - 7032 - Osaka 2007, Kluft - 7001 - Paris 2003)

    KJT came of age tonight and I couldn't be prouder of her.

    Miller-Uibo's Tokyo double schedule, unless it's changed. What goes through her head after that bolt from Naser? Suspect she'll focus on the 200 and see what happens in the 400 afterwards.

    That womens 400 was insane.

    're Kat, I was always a believer but that was more flag waving hope than knowledge. Whether we doubted or not, we are are all smiling tonight that she has show her potential. If both are fully fit, Tokyo could be a clash of the titans.

    Brilliant breakthrough from Kaul.
    SMU's face looked like thunder when she came off the track... She ran *under* 48.4, something that only 3 other women in history had ever done before... and she came away with "just" the silver medal

    She will be *pissed*.
