    Can the 800m men take inspiration from the women? Both will need to run well to make the final, but they are also both more than capable of it.


    • #3
      Heats are quite challenging, but hope for the best.

      I was surprised to see Warholm and Benjamin in the same semi when there are three.

        Hughes has the easiest looking route to the 100 final of the British men.

        It's going to be tough for Tiff and Cindy.

          Is the the lowest standard 100m at the OG since 1984? I'd fancy, Carl Lewis, Linford Christie, Donovan Bailey or Frankie Fredericks against all of this lot - especially on a Mondo track in modern spikes.

            92 Christie ran it in 9.96, second was 10.02 - admittedly spikes and tracks advanced!

            Remains to be seen, I think we could see something special from Ronnie Baker personally. I think at the summit, it probably is the lowest since then, but in terms of depth you could argue it's the best its ever been.

            Good question. I suppose it's hard to tell when the contenders have only run once so far. I suspect the level required to make the final may be about the same as the last few Games but the difference between that and a bronze medal may be smaller than in the days of Bolt, Blake etc.

          Many are called. But few get up.

            Is that a Man reference? Is so, I'm now going to have difficulty in disassociating Alex Bell from 70s Welsh prog rock from now on

            Yes. Good Welsh prog knowledge @frankie-cahill !

            I have always liked the phrase. Heroism is a little bit rare because you have to have the opportunity and you have to take it.
            I'm singling out Bell because, although she has iron-hard resoluteness, will-power and abs, she is also just an ordinary Leeds lass.

          Anita Wlodarczyk is coming into form at the right time... 76.99 m in hammer qualifying attempt one, sees her through to the final.


          • #8
            Ivana Spanovic has injected some class into the underachieving group B in the LJ with a 7.00 jump.


            • #9
              Lizzie Bird is the first Brit to progress running further than 800m as an FL in the SC.


              • #10
                Ugen was hyped with some jumps of quality this year. Cannot see better than 6 05 on my phone.⁴

                  A 6.05 then a foul with her 3rd jump coming shortly.

                  Mihambo has now jumped 6.98. Perhaps she found the board!

                Abby Irozuru hits the auto Q on the nail with 6.75 in the 3rd. Jaz Sawyers currently hanging in the top 12 by her fingertips but I am not hopeful that she'll remain.


                • #12
                  Well done Irozoru qualwd auto 6 75


                  • #13
                    With only 10 places here for Russian ANAs, Daria Klishina fouling out in the LJ isn't a great use of one of those spots!


                    • #14
                      Another foul by Ugen so v poor by her but it looks like Sawyers will make it through.

                        Irozuru gets the auto Q and Sawyers scrapes through to the final in 11th place... disappointing for Ugen who finishes right at the bottom of qualifying with two no marks and a jump barely over 6 metres, but not surprising given the injury story she detailed on Twitter.
