Did anyone else see the 3000m final last night? I felt really bad for Kudashkina but you just knew she was going to run out of steam on the last lap even though she led by six seconds at the bell.

...had to leave before the 3k last night Steven...

...but have just seen that Judd and Snowden are both comfortably through the 800m heats.
This is looking like a very tasty event. (And he's back! :lol: )

Lucy Bryan has qualified (via a perfect record up to 3.85, which height only 12 athletes achieved)
for the PV final.

Looking ahead to the boys 2000SC Zak Seddon could be battling for the bronze medal with a Ugandan, Saudi Arabian and Morrocan athlete. I would assume the two Kenyan athletes will battle it out for Gold and Silver.

Zac is 6th fastest qualifier, has the 5th fastest PB but has the 3rd fastest Season's Best.

Elsewhere my attention was drawn to a comment re the small team UK have sent with a number of events not showing a UK rep. Does not augur well for the future.Or perhaps it does not matter?

According to Tops in Athletics she was already the highest ranked U17 in the U20 All time rankings with her previous PB of 59.58. She's now ranked equal 11th on the U20 rankings.

Edit She is the second fastest Qualifier for the final.

Unfortunately it looks as if Callum Brown has failed to qualify for the Hammer final finishing 14th with 67.90m about 5m down on his best.

I wonder where you read that :roll:

Pity Eurosport seem to have decided to cancel the coverage, or will tomorrow be different?

It is a small team but UKA always have tougher qualifying standards compared to the IAAF or even EA. A number of athletes only just missed out on gaining the harder uk standards, i am surprised that uka didn't send a bigger team based on world rankings in some events namely boys 400H. Having said that with the exception of Calum Brown this morning in the Hammer(who was 5m down on his PB) every GB athlete so far has made it through there heats to semi-finals and finals.

According to my sky tv eurosport have coverage at 1715 tomorrow. (box ready to record) :)

Yasmin Miller failed to qualify for 100h final 5th place in semi 14.25 into -3.0 headwind (heat 3) heat 1 also had -3 wind and the athletes in heat 2 only had a -0.7 headwind to contend with, the 1st and 3rd fastest times coming from that heat.

I realise it is only a small team. The comment was very tongue in cheek, knowing full well where the original comment was read.

I had my sky box set to record todays, until they cancelled it. I didn't realise until I went to check on programmes set to record and it had disappeared :? All became clear when I went to Eurosport channel.
I have set it again for tomorrow. Living in hope!

Jacko Gill 24.35 WYB in the Shot Put

Unfortunately our 800m boys didn't make the final but I don't think either of them have a sub 1:50 run in them yet.

Great to see Odail Todd winning the men's 100 in 10.51, especially after his more highly touted Jamaican compatriot Odane Skeen withdrew with injury....

Does anyone think he might even win in London next year?
I know it's a wild suggestion but he must be finalist material already.

Just seen an interview with him on a NZL website where he says how disappointed he was that a finger injury stopped him throwing over 25 m. :shock:

And a good start for Desiree Henry with a PB of 23.57 into a slight headwind. I think she has a great shot of getting a medal, if not winning it.

Thanks, lets hope he weathers the training required to go through the heavier weights, I once had a fifteen year old I got up to 18meters but was more interested in playing his guitar and writing music which he was quite good at. 24 Meters though is spectacular 8) 8) 8)
