      Muir was the clear class of that field and didn't put a foot wrong.

      Great run by Ciara Mageean to take silver. One of the Aussies got bronze.

          Thrilled for Laura Muir, but womens 1500m running without Kipyegon and Tsegay is really quite boring, isn't it? Stuck in the last lap sprint era. Mageean's margin to bronze says it all about that race. Gutless of the paceless Aussies to let it go so slow. Nobody seems to even try to beat the big 3, they just give them the race to suit every time.

            I expect they knew they couldn't beat Laura going fast anyway, and thought a slow race was their best chance for silver, not counting on Mageean.

            Yeah, I think the others are just being realistic about their chances of gold. As for silver, there's no reason why they wouldn't fancy their chances against Mageean. You'd normally trust Jess Hull & Linden Hall to beat Mageean.

            Don't buy that @Occasional. Muir, Mageean, Reekie, Nanyondo, Chebet have all ran well under 2.00 for 800m. Jess Hull hasn't broken 2.03 and is a 14.40 5000m runner. There is no way she could believe she'd have any of them.in a 500m burn up.

          Reekie had a go, but her illness/fitness issues saw her tiring at the end.

            Bit of a shame for Jemma Reekie, just not quite back at 100% yet.

              Good series developing for top ranked Buschkuel, 6.88 and 6.87.

                Abbey Caldwell - the youngster on the team (21yo).

                    We've been so spoilt by middle distance racing recently that races like that feel deeply underwhelming. Kinyamal and Bol the class and got the run of the race - Don't know how Pattison won bronze after the way he ran - Probably ran the worst race in the field. Big talent and an impressive bronze.

                      Championship record of 6.99 for Brume. I think that pushes Jaz out of a medal position.

                        Ese Brume into the lead, 6.99.

                        I don't think Buschkuehl can get into silver or gold position. Her 7.05 and 7.13 are quite significant outliers in her career (jumped in small meetings where conditions may have been very favourable).

                          I don't know if it's the crowd, but I have never seen that speed from Sawyers before.
