    Barega brings the 10000 title back to Ethiopia. Nearly for Uganda. 53 years of 10000m hurt continues for Kenyan men.

    Which in itself is poor for those not too interested in athletics!

    Selemon Barega the first millennial to be an Olympic champion in athletics.

    and as if to underline the shocking scheduling and contempt the Beeb has... on channel 601, right now, they are showing the m10 000 live, 21 mins into the race, and on BBC1, what are they are showing .... the m10 000, but just starting.... 'cause they dont have the 'rights' .... J/K

    Sam Atkin hobbles out of the 10000. Mo would still be with the pace at the moment probably.

    Sam Atkin dropped out. A brutal day for our distance runners!

    Runny your comments ... 'the BBC don’t have the same rights as they had before - so yes it is the worst coverage from them but that is because they don’t have the rights - Discovery do and use Eurosport. BBC coverage for Olympics used to be good.'

    It seems to me the 'rights' have nothing to do with the choice of what the BBC have chosen to show in the last hour ... while I had to read this forum to know what was happening in the w5000m - BBC were showing women's football (GBR vs Aus) and a mix of rugby/judo/golf ... they are now showing the M10 000m is that because they have the 'rights' to show this now 'LIVE', or, they choose to show this?

    I dont have Eurosport, as I only use Freeview, I have an old laptop that struggles to show any video without buffering, I dont know what a 'VPN' is and I am probably the last person on the planet without a mobile phone, so no 'apps' ... I despair, and its not just athletics, the beeb are not showing the heats of the swimming - in fact haven't done live all week for the most part.

    I am forced to pay £13.37 p/m, to support their 'diversity and inclusion' political agenda, but they show nothing but contempt for the 'minority group' I belong to ...

    rant could continue

    it's confusing: they have an ad-free commentary-free stream and a stream with commentary. Try looking under All sports / Athletics.

    Ryan Bailey? He was incredibly talented. Think he went on to pursue another sport, I could be wrong.

    The Dutch could also bring in Bonevacia and Van Diepen on the men's side.

    The latter may be unlikely as I think he's in the 800?

    Several second-leg runners in both heats managed to line up in the wrong place - the ones in the second heat realised their mistake, the ones in the first didn't/. Got an advantage because the men ran farther.

    Kiplimo obviously delighted to be lining up alongside the great Marc Scottl.

    GB definitely in with a chance of a medal in the Mixed 4x400m - the 4th fastest qualifiers.

    Will be interesting to see which teams add any of their quicker names.

    Netherlands - Femke Bol
    Jamaica - McPherson, Gaye
    Poland - Swiety-Ersetic
    GB - Jodie Williams

    25 10000 runners. Everyone has a PB quicker than the WR when I first got into the sport. Is it time for me to start feeling old?
