      Ha, Nozomi Tanaka had a PB of 15:00.01. Now she's sub-15 by 0.07s !

        McColgan is still in the 10,000 m at least.

            The mixed relay line-ups are far from star-studded.............

              Did McColgan say she was clipped, not spiked? Her acceptance of it as part of the game reaffirms my view that she was goosed, but I can see why others disagree.

              The BBC coverage so far is beyond appalling, worse than philipo even imagined!

              Thank God for VPN's and the world feed on CBC. So far only interrupted by one 20 second ad break.

                The BBC donโ€™t have the same rights as they had before - so yes it is the worst coverage from them but that is because they donโ€™t have the rights - Discovery do and use Eurosport. BBC coverage for Olympics used to be good.

              No race with Phil "From the Depths of Hell" Healy in it can ever be said to lack stars.

                That's the one star then. Needs to be plural to be star-studded.

                Why? Never great when you lose top teams or athletes. Widens the medal opportunity but as with Dina's 200m World title, speculation whether she would have won if the fields had been full strength.

                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.

              • Sophie McKinna continues the downward trend of GB today in track and field, only managing a "best" of 17.81 in shot put qualification and finishing in 17th overall.

                • The Belgium kit seems to hark back to the days of Van Damme, Puttemans and Roelants.

                  Not that I remember the latter in his prime but he was the last non-Kenyan to win the 3000SC at an Olympics where the Kenyans were present!

                  • I recall that the studio chat time and coverage of live swimming was ful some to say the least. I am like others I will not watch in case the bbc decides to show a bit of live athletics. ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’

                    • With no USA I wonder if that will have an effect with teams adding more big names to the final than they would have done with the gold becoming more open?

                      • philipo, get the Discovery Plus app for the Eurosport streams - ยฃ6.99 for one month. Just cancel your subscription as soon as you can so that it doesn't auto-renew at the end of the month. You still get the full month whenever you cancel it.
