    That'll take some catching. And the Norwegian with a NR as well. Miller out of the medals for now, but another 6cm would put him third.

    Coburn currently DQ for a lane infringement - not that it makes a huge difference TBH.

    Peruth Chemutai is the first Ugandan woman to win an Olympic medal in any sport.

    Very good opening heave from Nick Miller in the hammer final, with 77.88 to go into 2nd place. Nice way to open up the competition.

    Good day for Hertfordshire! Williams and Bird are former clubmates.

    The USA has played it's part in Williams' move to the 400 and Bird's discovery of the steeplechase.

    77.88m opener for Miller - very solid, and should secure him 6 throws.

    Super British record for Lizzie Bird.
    It's taken long enough for British female steeplechasing to catch up with the rest of the world... Well done to Bird for the NR.

    And Frerichs' decision to take it out as she did, guaranteed her the silver medal. Congrats to Chemutai with the gold, running so calmly and catching the American at the perfect time.

    Emma Coburn though.... oooof.

    Great effort by Bird what odds would you have got that she would have beaten Yavi.
