    Only 6.45 for long jump means Hideous Fountain is out of the running for gold definitely.

    So it's down to Ennis and Chernova for the gold and it all depends on the javelin. :yikes:

    Yay we're doing better than Australia ^_^. Wonder it lasts. I can't think of any Australians at the moment. Wait there is a long jumper isn't there?

    Ooh and we got through to semi final or final for 1500m Men.

    Oh and why are they doing 1500m heats and 800m final today? Be a real pain if you're good at both distances.

    And why do Hepthaletes and Decathletes get tortured by having to do the 800m and 1500m respectively. Poor people have already done 9 or 5 events.

    Mitchell Webb. And Sally Pearson is the outright fave in 100m hurdles.

    Some of the scheduling here has been completely :confused:

    Because it's :EVILLE:.

    Jessica Ennis basically needs a PB in the javelin to get even with Chernova. :yikes:

    You know between swimming worlds and now these athletics worlds. The brits haven't done as well as they could. There is the rowing though. I guess that is a consolation. But the media must be getting ready to pounce.

    ^It's a tactical move, so there isn't TOO much pressure in LOndon.

    Yea, that's it.

    ;)

    Isn't there any Spanish representation at these champs? Or Italian?

    Yes, but they're not medalling. Spain has an outside chance tonight in the men's discus and there's the women's 20k walk tomorrow (if any of the Russians get DQ'd). Men's and women's 1500 is also usually a good one for Spain.

    Italy have Mr. Carolina Kostner going in the 50k walk on Saturday. And Antonietta di Martino in the high jump. Failing to think of any other medal hopes for them. Maybe men's 4x100 relay if others cock things up. :shuffle:

    She didn't throw it far enough. :p

    Always a bit of rough and tumble in 1500m.
