    I’d say that we were below par so far but not yet complete disaster. Gale did well to get to the final I think. I wouldn’t have been surprised if asha hadn’t made the semis so that’s a plus. Daryll’s pb was great.
    biggest negatives provably okoye, mccolgan, knight and Dustin - I don’t want to sound too motherhood and apple pie about it but you can see mitigating circs with each other than okoye

    That’s an awesome top 3 at the minute- and of course little who’s not even here

    Bit early to call "disaster" , no ?

    3 women in 100 - tick
    same for 800
    2 of 100h through - if less than impressive.
    2 of 3 men in 800
    1 of 3 women in 400h
    2 jumpers qualified for final.

    OK 5000 was poor - though Markovc got a PB so let's not shoot her , eh ?
    And Okoye was a flop - which does happen in throws sometimes.

    Middling so far , I'd say.

    If I had said what we all know the roof would have fallen on me from the usual crowd. Dont say a certain level of weakness of mentality. The overhyped mr Dustin was supremely sanguine about his indifferent performance.when interviewed. Our athletes are beginning to excel at PR about their performances. Did they interview Okoye. The big team proponents will have their say.

    I am scoring that a ten for irony , philipo ! Glad to see some humour behind the grumpy old man facade ...

    *A* standout, not *the* standout. I don't see where the disagreement lies, unless you don't think Murphy was one of the most impressive men in those heats (and at US trials)?

    Most of her runs this year have been good... but then there are those occasional bad runs... and this one was in that category... Hopefully she's got it out of her system now and will run more like her 12.58 self in the semifinals

    Hmm, no time to throw in your British Trials final run in this opening heat, Cindy Sember....

    Got to say, the red button coverage of this morning's session of athletics has been pretty nice, not gonna lie.

    USA whines and World Athletics bends over.

    Currently, 7 pole vaulters are over 5.65, Coppell included... That height could be the cutoff point for qualifiying
