Should this 4x400m relay be held last? How insulting that it was the final event for the men and not for women.

Two words - Usain Bolt.

I have my *fingers cross* that Sally Pearson upstages that event. I do like Bolt but I don't see why the 200m needs to be the final event.

US looks like they have this wrapped up.

WR is 12.21 from 1988. Be interesting to see if Pearson can get close to it.

Maybe somebody can take somebody out a la Felicien in Athens. :EVILLE:

High jump gold goes to Chicherova. Vlasic second and Di Martino third.

Wow and you know I didn't think she started as well as last time. Had she got a better start that could have been a WR and I think she has a really good chance to do that one day.

Pearson was just phenomenal. :eek: She's been rock solid all the way through. One of the highlights of the championships for me. Porter could well have had silver but for that 9th hurdle and probably smashed the British record for the 2nd time in a couple of hours. :fragile:

Can't believe Channel 4 got Sally Pearson to sign the daily programme. :rofl:

"Stuff the bloody curse." :lol:

Bolt, Dix and LeMaitre are the medallists in the 200m.

Cool a frenchman medalled. Love that. Bolt won. Always was going to and a bit of a stride really. Pearson winning is going to make the Australian media just terrible.

Great 200m. The cameramen and the crowd were insane on his lap of honour :lol: Can't believe LeMaitre's new PB :eek: Fantastic championships for him.

Just one more day to go. Sad to see it end, but looking forward to getting a normal night's sleep. :lol:
