    Okoye is mainly muscle, low on technique, NMs are more likely with that combination. I hope he sticks with the sport
    3 no throws. Impressed ? his technique allowed some 60 plus throws this year so his performance was poor.

    Either way, it's not a good lookl to come to a major games and not even register a distance.

    Alex Bell was out of the auto Q by 0.003! Luckily no harm done.

    He'll be about 36 then. Not that is particularly old for a discus thrower.

    And all was right with the world again. Congrats to Gale for making the Olympic final.

    Alex Bell missed 3rd by 3/1000ths but comfortably made it on times.

    Yeah, they updated it thankfully. Anger subsiding. And good news from both him and the 800m women after a shaky start to the day.

    Tom Gale now showing as qualified here: https://www.worldathletics.org/compe...cation/summary

    Phew.

    Also, all three women into what will be some loaded 800m semis.

    Okoye will now go off and do his own thing, come back in 2028 for the Olympics, as British no 1, richer than Croesus. Some might say today was karma.

    Still no qs showing - an official needs to speak to the results elves!

    I saw that too... Surely, if Gale has achieved the same height as the others, then even if it took more attempts, he should be qualifying with them

    If he *hasn't* qualified, I hope the GB team management lodges a protest of some kind. That's an injustice if he's not in the final.

    Surely a mistake on the website - they should go to the next height, but usually just take 13 when it is this close rather than waste everyone's time. If he is out without having 3 attempts at 2.30m that is a total travesty

    No he can't be eliminated without being allowed to attempt 2.30. They will just take 13 through.
Working...
