    ...And The Hodge was running through traffic, while Mu had clear air.

    You might be right. But I note that in the final The Hodge essentially exactly matched Mu's second lap split!

    Well yes they'll have to be at the top of their game as the semis are going to be fierce...and no room for error with two and two. But certainly not impossible. Hope Reekie makes sure to get first two as the later heats will know what they need for times if it comes to third place qualifications...

    Indeed the w800 semis look like they are going to be a lot of fun:

    -- Those semis are super strong, but it looks far from impossible for all 3 Brits to make the final. ...They'll have to be close to top form to do it/ though - of course.

    Look at this for a first round heat for example!

    BBC are good at putting it on the iPlayer, but of course that means a delay of anything up to five hours before you can see a session starting at 00;00 & finishing at 04:00

    Marschall and Kennedy trained with Kendricks. I assume that they (and coach) then met up with the rest of the Australian team. Kendricks did not meet with the American team. Both the Aussies have been cleared to compete.

    Possibly I am showing terrible ignorance here... but - as @Occasional_Hope said - how come Sam Kendricks pinged Australians and not Americans?

    LOL My excitement level is starting to go into thermal runaway already, and there is still 8+ hours to go to the first 100m preliminary!
    By this time tomorrow I am going to be exhausted.

    Plus, I note that there are already at least two parallel threads on this topic!! That's how exciting it is. 😊

    You can from 601 - I've set both just in case. Might depend on what equipment you have though.

    I was afraid of that. As far as you know you can't record the red button programming?

    According to the Radio Times it's mainly BBC1 (BBC 2 at lunchtime - for the 10K final for instance). Some of the heats may be relegated to RB/601.

    Does anyone know what channels will be doing dedicated athletics coverage? BBC listings for when the first session for example only mentions Rowing being covered. Eurosport only showing session one from 12.45am - 2.20am.

    The ENTIRE Australian athletics team isolating apparently according to the BBC just now

    But that seems to have been temporary and only three isolating now: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-07-...lear/100334402
