Edwards did apologise for the commentary - but not in the way you mean!

Nathan's SB didn't get a mention from Edwards. Oh well.

Was that an attempt at an apology for the dodgy feed, when it's the talking we want to see less of?!!! :roll:

I seem to have a shaky 'mobile' version of the results pages up. Am I reading correctly that Steve Lewis has passed at 5.72?

The women's 800 final in London is going to be a hell of a race. Damn it, the semis might well be classics.

Yep! Looks like he is targeting a PB and possible national record!

Bit disappointing that Miranda, sorry I mean Emma Jackson, was just outside 2:00 although it was a really strong field.

Fascinated to learn from Cram that Magiso's NR was also the fastest ever run by an Ethiopian.

I think they need to realise that when they're on BBC3/red button they don't need to make it more 'accessible' to casual viewers - it's only athletics fans who are watching tonight.

Don't get me wrong, I think Bolt is a great draw. But what happens when he retires and there aren't any other widely known athletes to pull in the 'casual' fans! Stop going on about one athlete. Show people the sport not the celebs!
