    Biggest mystery to me is why the Russian female 800m runners always come to the championships with fast times and rarely produce the goods when it accounts. :confused:

    After Alistair Cragg qualifies for 5000m final, Deirdre Ryan sets national record in high jump of 1.95m to qualify for final too. Good morning for Ireland. :cheer2:

    What bright spark scheduled the qualifying for the 4x400 on the same day as the final of the 400m hurdles? :rolleyes:

    What the hell happened in the 5000m second heat? There is a New Zealander with a time of 13 minutes 57 seconds with a small q beside his name whereas several other athletics with higher times did not qualify.

    He was knocked over and Team NZ probably filed a protest which got him through.

    The 4x400 looks like it's going to be a tight race. :rolleyes: that it's not going to be the final race of the champs.

    I would love to know what resources are going into Belgium athletics. They're doing splendid and they're all hot. I didn't know Belgium men were that hot as previously one only could compare them to Kevin Van Der Perren.

    Lots of good races tonight by the looks of things.

    Jesse Williams wins the high jump. He's been very consistent this season so well done to him. Dmitrik of Russia second, Barry of Bahamas third.

    Triple jump done too with Saladuha of Ukraine first, Rypakova of Kazakhstan in second and Ibarguen of Colombia in third.

    It seems like you are wishing for some action. What happened to Jesse 'pornstar' Williams, did the dude won the high jump.

    Good news for Finland is that at least Ruuskanen should make it through to the final. Ari Mannio is in 13th at the moment and needs 1cm to move into the final qualifying position.

    Only one Finn in the final, and he being last to qualify, is a national catastrophe.:p The cabinet ministers will we accused, then feminists, then the immigrants, who only play football and don´t care a bit about our national heritage.

    I am only half-joking. Men´s javelin is the biggest sport here after ice hockey. I, of course, welcome all the hot javeliners switch to figure skating.

    What is it about Javelin throwers. They're so good looking. Yay for New Zealand qualifying to final. The throws do seem rather small suggesting not ideal for Javelin throwing.

    And drama at 400m Hurdles

    and more drama, lol
