      Great run by the Chinese lassie as well.
      Wang did indeed run very well.

      • I thought Keely had left it late! That was astonishing

        • All 3 Brits in the final. What a performance.

          • The changing of the old guard in the women's 800 m? Rodgers just scraping through, Almanza out, Wilson out, Sum didn't even make the semifinals, Meanwhile, two 19-year-olds and a 23/24 year-old (Reekie) are leading contenders for medals in the final on Tuesday. Crickey.

            • Also, it's pretty mind-blowing that 1:59.28 (Rodgers' time in the final semi) wasn't fast enough for a non-automatic time. (6 runners in that last semifinal all ran under 2 minutes btw)

              • And to think the British selectors for Berlin 2018 said that Alex Bell isn't a major championship performer when justifying her ommission from the team ...

                She's never let her country down in a major champs!

                2018 Comm Games - 5th in the final (and fiirst Brit)
                2019 World Ch - 5th in semi final
                2019 European XC Mixed Relay - she ran a storming leg
                2021 Olympic final !

                    • In the Prediction Contest I don't think anyone had Petersson medaling. Quite a lot had 1st and 3rd correct though.

                        I don't think I'm doing too well this time. I definitely messed up my w800.

                    • That's Sweden's first gold medal in an Olympics since Carolina Kluft and Christian Olsson won gold in the heptathlon and triple jump respectively, at the 2004 edition in Athens.

                          Probably true whichever man we used on it.

                      • People will scoff at the event, but those athletes have Olympic golds!

                        • Well done Poland. The US shouldn't have used their C team.
