    Could have taken something out of the athletes in this heat for the final.

    I'd have thought they'd really need to push it in the second for her not to

    Well done to Jessica Hull with that area record. No McGee or Chebet...

    Snowden not quite as fast as in the heat but betters her pre-games PB again. A good outing for her.

    Bloody hell! 3:56.8 for a semi.

    Jessica Hull & Nozomi Tanaka with sub-4 National Records ! 3:58.81 and 3:59.19 respectively. Tanaka has taken 4.9s off her own NR at these Games!

    Purrier only 6th in 4:01.00 but could go through.

    3.56 for a semi for Kipyegon. She's sending a message to Hassan.

    Hep: Fantastic start for KJT with her second best hurdles run ever, but she looked pretty rusty in the HJ and slightly concerning to see her receiving treatment. Thiam looks great.

    Dec: Warner looks superb.

    110h: I actually didn't expect Andy P to make the final, so well done to him even if it was as a FL.

    400h: stunning WR, excellent from Muhammad in silver, brilliant third and European record from Bol who just flagged in the last 50m or so.

    Denise looks almost as knackered as I do, after being on through the night. Probably not the time to tell her Jess is on double the money, for half the hours.

    Seems im extremely late to the party on this one but...has there been a recent revolutionary shoe design (similar to the nike vaporfly for distance running) that is contributing to these improvements? And if so has there been any studies done around the sort of percentage improvement its likely to achieve?

    Only just seen the result and video of that hurdles race!!!

    This Track, Those Spikes and whole bunch of talent!

    Really really looking forward to the 200 later and more hoping they step up!!! Being very underwhelming so far IMO in the 2. Womens 4 I think Jodie can run low 50.x and make it through in 2nd (fingers crossed)

    Amazing w400h. Every bit as good as the men.

    Spear qualifying is always a lottery. Based on his last couple of comps and this Vetter looks well short of the athlete he was early season. Apart from his troubles.....

    Reigning world champion Peters - out

    2nd ranked this year Krukowski - out

    3rd ranked this year and double Olympic medalist Walcott - out

    5th ranked this year Cakss - out

    8th and 9th ranked this year - Van Rooyen and Shuey - out

    Chen and Yego both 90 men, not where they were but well off the pace with 77 and 71m respectively. Helander another 88m man was also sub 80.

    Yes I’d say final was top end of my expectation for him and semi for king so they’ve both done well

    Yes…I slept - I’m afraid working and wrangling a toddler solo I have to! And was relieved to see she’d just made it through the two ok

    Oh, there's a LOT that could go wrong in a heptathlon, for KJT or anyone. NM in LJ, injury etc. My point was more to show that she's roughly where she needs to be right now to be in with a medal shot if everything else is "solid".

    To compare KJT with previous years, here's where she was in other major meets, along with where she finished overall:

    Oly 2012 - 2146 (14th)
    WC 2013 - 2068 (5th)
    WC 2015 - 2166 (28th - NM in LJ)
    Oly 2016 - 2262 (6th)
    WC 2017 - 2053 (5th)
    Euros 2018 - 2193 (silver)
    WC 2019 - 2282 (gold)

    So firmly middle of the pack performance wise by her own standards right now. Assuming other events go as normal (obv never a guarantee in multi discipline) If she has KJT 2019 shot/javelin, she can medal. If she has previous KJT form in those, I think we're lookng at 5th or 6th at best.
    Too many variables for me to risk any predictions yet...

    But I am glad to see she is solidly into the competition and doesn't look at all hobbled by her injuries. Will wait and watch (as long as my stream gives the Hep proper attention !)
