    Elliot looked very easy at 1:44, but it's going to be murder in the next couple of rounds if everyone else is going to run like this.

    Yeah, what's her 2nd best comp this year? 65? A big difference from 70 !

    Very good racing from Giles, looked strong & doing no more than enough. Impressed with the Aussie.

    1:43.75 in the opening heats of the men's 800 m? Damn! Giles through nicely though.

    Really? She did follow that up with winning the European U23s with a 63.05 m

    Yet the Olympics website does show NR, SB and PB. Normally the systems for online and TV are linked to the same database. Not so, it seems at the Olympics!

    It was in Tucson. I think you may be getting mixed-up with Andrejczyk's JT?

    Failed drug test

    Not usually. One slight advantage of a 3 semi system is that a withdrawal perhaps has less effect on the actual qualifiers.

    This reply was before I heard about the drug test which technically means that her run from the heat was disqualified.
