    Some remarkable times in those distance races. Some strange happenings in the steeplechases but didn't exactly derail the finishing times...Not sure Coburn would have caught Kiyeng even if she hadn't fallen but it would have been a great finish. Bird an excellent GB record - well done her. Must be a rather embarrassed timekeeper somewhere after the men's race !

    Kipyegon , Cheryiot (can they really leave him out ?) stamping their authority , national records and PBs everywhere. Best Aussie prospect McSweyn an Oceania Record - and only fourth. But his countryman Edwards must feel even more conflicted , running a PB and finishing next to last .

    Warholm just looks fantastic every time he races. And I agree that last three jump shoot out is a horrible way to decide an event. Rather farcical tonight in the TJ. Box office , I suppose...

    Delighted for Muir and Reekie . And Giles consistency suggests GB have a decent hand in those middle distance events - but they haven't half got some tough opposition. Roll on Tokyo.

    Both steeplechases had crazy last laps. I did feel sorry for the men in particular, as they evidently all made the same mistake when they heard the bell. Some good times in spite of that though.

    Rojas had a huge foul, and had easily the best jump of the competition but still only came second due to the silly final 3 rules - that's a very good reason to ditch them in my opinion. What would happen if Rojas (or anyone else for that matter) set a world record and still came 3rd? It could happen and its crazy to think about.

    A great meeting on the whole, with Monaco living up to expectations yet again. However, it doesn't feel right somehow to be Monaco without a world record (yes I know - its based off previous years) but still a very entertaining couple of hours nonetheless.
    Kipyegon gave it her best shot, ok! She's only sorta superhuman!

    I’d totally missed that Kerley was so fast over the shorter sprints.

    Anyone else have sub 44, 20 and 10 PBs? Johnson was only 10.09 over 100.

    Everyone else is scrapping for the minor medals in Tokyo.

    That's some great pacemaking by Hassan there for Kipyegon.
