      Goodness, what a downpour. It looks quite like home.

        Not in Hertfordshire this summer.

        The thing about these more tropical climates, when it rains, it tends to be very hard.

      Still pelting it down! Currently hoping to restart at 10:25 our time.

      Now 10:55.

        Looks like I cursed it with my previous comment as it's raining pretty hard again.

      The rain seems to have stopped now.

          Impressive times after a 2 hour delay.

          should be fine as a fastest loser, just needs to avoid lane 1 in the final

          And that was the fastest semi and Jeriel gets a fast loser spot in the final.

        I wonder what's the story with the Turkish 200m runner Anthony Smith?

        Tebogo cruises 20.23.

        Eloise Hind only managed 10.14 in the shot, dropping her to 10th overall, one place ahead of Ella Rush.

          Joy Eze struggled a bit at this level, but would have needed a pb for any hope of making the final. Her time of 11.49 is actually pretty close to her pb, but 4th place means she's unlikely to make it.

            Sadly, just one spot outside qualification.

        • #25
          Nia third in her semi in 11.51, so she's definitely out and Joy is hanging on.

            Yes, hopefully she can use this. Slightly disappointing time given that she ran a pb of 11.36 in the first round.

            Disappointing, possibly, but my rule of thumb with young athletes is if they come to a champs and get a PB it's usually a success overall.

            Yes, that's fair enough.

          25.60 pb for Eloise in the 200, and 24.52 pb for Ella. That moves Ella up to 7th and Eloise down to 12th at the end of day 1.

            Wow, enormous 51.72 pb for Yemi Mary John in the semis. A very commanding run.

              Holy carp! Yemi Mary John with a massive PB of 51.72 in winning the opening semi final of the 400m!

                National u20 record, I think. She's the clear favourite now.

                  It is, a record that has stood since 1974.

                Indeed it is.... Yemi Mary John has just taken down one of the most enduring and oldest of the UK's U20 records, that of Donna Hartley's 51.77 time she achieved, also as a 19 year old, 48 years ago in 1974!
