    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*.

      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.

        Day 1: Morning: 200 Heats
        -
        Day 2: Evening 200 SFs
        -
        Day 3: Morning 400 Heats
        Day 3: Evening 200 Final
        -
        Day 4: Evening 400 SFs
        -
        Day 5: Evening 400 Final

        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.

          "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.

          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....

        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.

          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

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

            I thought much the same over my morning ablutions... where once the forum's lively KJT debate - second only to the relay line up discussions - often centred around the misnomer of a critical 2m/7m combo - what we have witnessed is the possibility of a 14m SP and a 44m JV - combined with a stable 1.95 and 6.7X - with a breakthrough in hurdles, and a 200 that could easily return to 22.9X, for an 'eyeballs out' 800 for Olympic gold and 7000 plus.score...

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

            Naser went through 200 in 22.8 apparently. 300 split was 34.6, so she went 11.8 for the third 100. Miller-Uibo split 23.3 & 35.3.

              22.8 would have placed Naser in the top 8 in the 200m final yesterday! Incredible stuff!

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

                  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...

                    Well, until such time as she fails a test or likewise, then I'm going to take hers (and Miller-Uibo's) performances tonight on face value and call them incredible, not "unbelieveable" performances... Like how Gred Lemond called Lance Armstrong's performance in the first of his 7 consecutive TdF "victories" when he was interviewed afterwards by the press, he called them "unbelieveable"... because he knew that Lance and the other riders coming through in that era were doping, but couldn't come out and say it because of the support system Armstrong had around him that would attack anybody casting suspicion his way.

                    I can understand people being suspicious... No female 400m runner has run as fast since Marita Koch's WR run in '85 - and that performance was almost certainly performance enhanced (and possibly wind aided too). But I'll always give the benefit of the doubt to the athlete unless it was clear something was going on that makes their runs look suspect.

                      I'd go along with that, it just really caught me off guard that is wasnt the usual suspects, I saw some really big name US coaches, British athletes, Irish, Aussies all making their feelings explictly known or liking comments that did. Havent seen a reaction like that before.

                      Incredible actually means unbelievable.

                    The spear was pivotal in both multis.

                    Kat, at last, has grooved a serviceable technique that will guarantee low 40s. But there’s more to come, the lack of follow through on her PB throw was quite bizarre. As well as Kat sorting herself out there’s been some great work from her coaching team.

                    Thiam’s got a real problem. The spear’s her big point of difference, but elbow problems are really difficult to shake off. She may well need medical intervention and / or technique remodelling. Either way I doubt we’re going to see 16 / 17m differentials again which brings a whole new dynamic into play.

                    Kaul just blew it all apart in the spear and that wasn’t a freak either, he’s got 78 and 77 to his credit from earlier this year. Great technique, he simply looks like a proper thrower and 80 will come. Disgraceful that such a good thrower can also run a fantastic 1,500 too.

                      I think I am only just out of shock from that 400!
                      Im here trying to get woman to maybe 51/50 lol and the world has shifted.

                      Excellent performance by KJT, sublime

                        That last line though... L O L!

                          I'm stunned that he hasn't been. He clearly balls his hand into a fist, and even if it isn't a firm punch there is visibly an aggresive punch rather than a flat hand on the back. Nevermind the aggressive cut back in which takes away his legs.

                          It must have escaped the track judge's attention (possible, they can't see everything live) AND not been protested by Ethiopia. Another one of those where if we had transparency of the jury process we'd at least be able to see if there was actually a decision made one way or another.

                          Edit: Lemi and Ramsden both advanced to the semi, hadn't spotted that earlier. Still surprised that Filip is in there though.
