    Ha good point! She actually came early, she was due mid October, and I’d finished work early with the plans of spending my last days of pregnancy chilling out watching the world champs - instead i was in hospital for 4 days of them!

    Just seen the non-Olympics thread on GBs first weightlifting medallist Emily Campbell who won a superb silver in the 87kgs category today. She was a former athlete - still competing in 2019 - a thrower. Just sharing as it might have passed you by. https://www.thepowerof10.info/athlet...thleteid=88377

    Everytime someone says "ETH" in this thread, I think first of Ethiopia rather than Elaine Thompson-Herah!

    But you now have a rampaging toddler distracting you I imagine which seems an excellent excuse for anything

    I'm with Occasional Hope though think there's a chance Mboma could take it. She's knocked 0.7 off her pre-Olympic time. Basically hedging my bests. Hope it's Elaine and SAFP for Gold and bronze but who knows? Favourites falling like...

    Cherry looks better of the Americans but I don't see either on the podium. Gardiner, James and Zambrano for me, not entirely sure of the order

    Oh dear, in my defence I had a 4 day old when the final was run, so may have been a bit out of it! No excuse for missing her this time though!

    ETH to win but I haven't a clue who will run the places.

    The women’s pole vault could be a cracker, there’s barely anything between the top 4. Nageotte has jumped well this year but has never won a medal at a global champs, can she make the leap to gold in one fell swoop? Sidorova goes in as world champion and has a lot of success at major championships, but hasn’t hit the heights this year. Stefanidi is a great competitor and often produces her best at a champs. First time clearances are going to be crucial. Hollys got a fantastic chance

    Yes (and deserves praise for that), but she didn't make the final. Daryll did, and 10.95 is a world class time. Pre-Dina it would have been a massive British record too.

    Markovc got a PB in the 5000.
