    Another disaster for British track athletes! Jesse Knight falls at the first hurdle!

    Oh dear Jessie

    Fingers crossed Dina's in British record form later, because we need somebody to spark something.

    If he makes it to the start line for Heat 3 of the 100m Preliminaries, Jonah Harris of Nauru will be the first Nauruan to compete in Olympic Athletics.

    Previously, the tiny Pacific nation have only sent weightlifters and a couple of judokas to compete in the Games.

    A couple of really poor GB Track performances where is this going to carry throughout the Games? /In particular, McColgan, Beesley, and all field so far other than Tom Gale.

    I want all of our athletes to absolutely smash it, but nothing pisses me off more than athletes going to Games and massively underperforming even SB's.

    Bring your best or don't bother.

    Meghan Beesley is likely not going to make it through... Came 7th in heat 2 of the 400 m hurdles with 55.91.

    Can someone explain why the US has been reinstated in the mixed relay? Notwithstanding the first changeover, for their second change the woman clearly changed places - so should still be a DQ for that surely?

    I assume the team pushed out by their reinstatement will counter-protest?

    Oh, well done Melissa Gonzalez (COL) in heat 1 of the 400H - through to the semis with a 55.32 NR (PB by 0.13s)

    Looking unlikely to start at 1am - GB have just won the mixed triathlon relay so they'll probably chat about that until 1.15

    The first final of today will be the 1000th final in Olympic Athletics.

    That's not to say the combined medal table will show 1000 golds - there was one event where the gold was shared (1908 PV), plus two extra golds were (re-)awarded to Jim Thorpe as joint first aeons after he was disqualified. Two golds remain vacant, one pending re-allocation (2012 Men's HJ) and the other likely to remain permanently vacated (2000 Women's 100m)

    The team currently shown is Clark, diamond, brier and charmers - oh although it still shows Spain and Germany in the final so perhaps not reliable

    Does anyone know who's been selected to rung the 4x4 final? Zoe Clark (50.4) and Emily Diamond (50.1) ran great splits. Are they bringing in Lavai or ANOTHER?
