    He's still only 20. He's bound to have some up and down days.

    Besides, as a Cumbrian, red hair or not, I can attest that we're not used to that kind of temperature. Give us a rainy, windy day in Gateshead any time...

      I suppose the drug testing cock-up was not ideal prep for Dustin.

        Better by Rowden!

          Dan Rowden through well enough.

            Decent comfortable run from Rowden - always in control and calm. Spot on. Nice Heat management.

              Rowden looked composed there.

                Men's 800m and 1500m will be a battle of tactics - no standout winner but a lot of contenders in each.

                  Agreed about the 800 but Cheruiyot is a pretty warm favourite for the 1500.

                Smart running from Rowden, exactly what you want to see in a heat - I think he'd have been a big danger coming here fully fit, but it'll be very tough off disrupted preparation. Murphy a real standout so far.

                  A standout? Won well but nothing too dramatic. More impressed by Cheruiyot Rotich - so so easy and lightning fast. (2 secs faster than Murphy)

                    *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)?

                  Well, my thoughts that everyone would run tactically and slowly, and that Bosse might sneak through despite being off form to the final, has been proven terrifically inaccurate. 🤣

                    Looks like he's sneaked into the semis.

                  What a messy heat with Lopez! Dobek through as well but didn't look too good in the last 50.

                    Lopez did look good although he should do at that pace I suppose.

                  Harry Coppell has a clean card through 5.65.

                    Clutch 3rd attempt at 5.50 by Lavillenie. Or, as the Aussie woman on the world feed called him, Lavillenelle. Watching too much Killing Eve, perhaps?

                      Does he have the killer instinct?

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

                      Surely you are not surprised
