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

      Yes - doing a season best just isn’t good enough.

    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...

      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.

        I notice that Jewett and Amos made sure they finished which is important.

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

        Rowen ran on the inside and never had a chance and when Giles ran it from the front you just knew....

            It looks like they've used their isolation to focus on the OG rather than leave it on the circuit.

          Korea's Woo another PB at 2.35. Woo-hoo!

            Rojas will surely jump a WR soon if not today. Currently leading an Iberian language 1-2-3-4.

              Rowden ran the same way as Dobek. But Dobek got very lucky in the straight and Rowden did not

                Spot on. Dobek ran a tactically poor race too, as you say he got lucky.

              What a men's high jump final! FOUR men now over 2.35 m! Woo (who is doing lots of "Woooing" in celebration!) sets a national record.

                  Look at these performances with NO spectators.... Imagine what it would have been like with a full crowd??

                    Seven men have cleared 2.33m in the high jump. That has never happened in any competition before.

                    Tamberi & Barshim bucking their recent form by being flawless up to 2.35.

                      Brilliant HJ final. 4 guys over 2.35 and 3 passing one or more attempts to go for 2.37.

                        This is 2014 Barshim we're seeing today! Clear now at 2.37 m first time!
