    Annoying that the Olympic Broadcasting Service don't mark NR, PB, SB etc on their results graphics.

      Zak Seddon, in heat 2, by contrast, is taking it out from the front.

        Times from H1 look well out of reach, but whatever happens, Zak has gone and given it a crack. Can't ask for more than that commitment.

          Meanwhile, in discus qualification group A, Daniel Stahl is straight through to the final with his first throw, 66.12 m, just over the 66 m big Q mark.

            Well, at least Zak Seddon avoided coming DFL.

              Hmm... Perhaps the reason Zak and Phil found things so difficult out there is that even though it is barely 10 AM over there in Tokyo, the temperature is 31 Celsius and 88% humidity! Yikes!

                Are there Live Results anywhere? For the field.

                EDIT: Found them!

                  Indian NR in the second heat... Can't recall Indian steeplechasers being a "thing" before but that was a very decent run from Sable.

                    Lalita Babar reached the women's World Ch final in 2015 and the Rio final as well, 8th and 10th respectively.

                  Christ, this is an ominous start. Last & second last in the opening races, and Okoye on two fouls...

                    The curse of the "US Trails bounce" has already struck this morning. Darryl Sullivan, 2nd in those Trials with an =PB of 2.33 m that was joint 4th best in the world, is out of the Olympics after three failures at 2.21... Ouch.

                      Hillary Bor and Bett could be big casualties in that final heat....

                        Great run by Topi Raitinen! Bett & Takele are out!

                          Leonard Bett of Kenya run out in a slower 3rd heat.

                            That was tactically awful. Are we sure the people in that last heat aren't all British?

                              Don't you just love the way the form book gets ripped up on the first morning or a major champs? Chuffed for Topi Raitanen.
