    Rojas almost jumped out of the pit there.... that looked like a 15.80 jump... but it was well over the plasticine too.

    Fair point on the SB, and I know he has had issues, but he's a much smarter athlete than he showed today. I don't think it's unfair to be honest about that - He has the talent and smarts to be in finals regularly.

    I think he may have been wondering where people were as he was unaware of the Amos/Jewitt fall.

    I think Giles did the sensible thing in taking it out, just not quite enough.

    I suspect we'll see a protest and nine in the final. Pity none of them is British.

    Sad for Giles. No one took it out, he did everything he could and ran a 1:44.7 solo but not quite enough. He'd have made it in Heat 2...

    Welp, that's it for one of our "best" events heading into these Olympics. No men make it into the final. Ugh.

    And he looked back with just a few metres to go. not sure why. Hopefully an FL place

    At least he went for it.

    Fair play to Giles, he did what he had to do there, just didn't have the legs. Can have no complaints. Rotich looks very classy, Tuka tactically brilliant as ever.

    All three 800 semis were pretty messy for one reason or another. Unless there's a transcendent talent like Rudisha, never bet on the Men's 800 !

    Giles no juice in the straight.

    Geez, some of you guys are hard taskmasters. Rowden ran a SB and beat some more favoured athletes. Yes, it was possibly a missed opportunity but he's a relatively inexperienced athlete at championships still.

    I'd say so. He'd get on the shoulder everytime on the circuit, seemed intimidated out of it and happy to sit off the back for too long, then had to stay inside and hope as he'd left it too late. Tactically very bad.

    He did - he held back and got boxed - he needed to follow the American around the outside to get a clear run in.

    A dreadful day for my Prediction contest - predicted winners Lopez and Ivanyuk out in short order.
