    No, it was Hughes that DQed at trials (taste of things to come). Prescod was just off form and 5th.

    Good point I hadn’t thought of that, thanks.

    His semi looks to be the toughest of the three but could also be the quickest. He’s up against Jewitt, Rotich, Amos and Tuka. He was slightly unfortunate today having to keep up with that incredibly fast pace set by Bol, it may have taken more out of him than he would have liked.

    Still over the moon about the W800. I must say that I disagree totally with the idea that Keely ran with maturity and timed it to perfection. She left it way too late, had to run 5m + further than everyone else, but is simply so, so, good that she got away with it. That is not how to run an 800.

    I think whoever goes with Mu when she kicks with 300m to go will blow up and miss a medal. Goule has made that mistake in the past. I hope Jemma is't the one to do that this time a la Our Laura. Strongly fancy Rogers to make her customary late run and sneak a medal. Expecting Jemma 4th, Keely, 6th and Alex 7th.
    One of Keely’s strengths is she runs her own race and isn’t overly influenced by what others are doing. In this instance it led to her being near the back of the field with 100 to go, but she was clear of the traffic and able to plot her path unhindered. See runs the same way pretty much every race - I can’t remember her sitting on the curb all season

    Her splits were 28.5 - 31.5 - 30.3 - 28.8. Her last 200 was quicker than anyone’s, even Rogers. Mu’s from the first semi was 30.0 but she was clear of the field at this point. I’ll stick my neck out, I think she’s the most of the three Brits to win a medal

    Not sure she'll be able to kick at 300 after fighting Goule for the lead for 500m, but we'll see. I certainly don't think she'll be given an easy ride out front again.

    I cannot see any better than 4th or 5th for Giles and Rowden in the 800m. .Rotich, Arop, Lopez and a couple of others look too good., but the race may well be affected by Jewett who may set a fast pace and then who knows.Stranger things happen.

    I thought that too... not exactly delighted for their teammate or the team sweep.

    Fantastic run . Thompson-Herah looked the goods right from the first round. And I reckon that's the "real" WR now.
    of course it is except some of the fans in the States.
    Was not particularly impressed by their male sprinters; i should have had more confidence in de Grasse who has got my thrid place.

    Been out, only just caught up on the action.

    Such a shame for Dina. But I think we had an inkling all was not well.

    Our 100m men look off the pace

    Great stuff in the w800. Bell looked like she was treading water a bit, while Hodgkinson looked both quick and astute. And to think we also have Muir in the ranks.

    The Jamaican women have the 4x100 sewn up. Love a bit of frostiness!

    Personal highlight the Swedish one two in the discus. Fantastic!

    i reckon that Mu will win because we have have not seen the best of her yet. So much speed at the end i somehow cannot see her last 100 m being inadequate; mind you miracles happen.Rogers has the experience and this race for the other medals will purely be who is in the right place at exactly the correct time.The sort of race which if it took place with the same finalists a week later would produce perhaps different silver and bronze.Is Wang to be discounted; i think not.
