    The stadium is packed. We seem to have landed in the corporate section and there is a distinct whiff of beer.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    What a 10,000 metre race!! that final lap was amazing. These long distance runners surprise and amaze me every time. I think these distances amaze me more than all the other distances other than the 100m.

    Was it amazing? It seemed INCREDIBLE on TV!

    Whee, get Majewski's headband of Power!! You can do it!

    Dibaba was fcking phenomenal. Big fan of Daphne Schippers in the heptathlon, hope to see her come through for Rio with KJT.

    Jeter looked super, As did the 8 other ladies who ran sub 11

    Wheeeeeeeeee, bring on tomorrow.

    I want a full PBP Freds.

    That was particularly special. Dibaba hasn't run a big race since 2008, who knew she still had that sprint in her.

    Sally Kipyego who was 2nd went to a US college and won multiple NCAA titles, apparently she has an amazing personality and a wonderful person so I'm happy to see her on the podium.

    So disappointed with her high jump.

    She HAS to PR in the long jump, but I wouldn't write her off just yet.

    Brilliant to see her back up her national hurdles win. Am I right in saying she had a baby recently enough?

    I'm sad for Armstrong too, really wanted him to medal on that last throw. Wasn't meant to be I guess. The olympics came just a year too late for him.

    This is the win I really, really want. I hate that it's hurdles where there's a lot of competition and anything can happen...gah. But it'd be huge for Puerto Rico to finally get a gold medal.

    I know. Culson really makes me nervous, though. He seems to get tight at the end. He's not the most adept at dealing with pressure and everyone here in PR is just piling it on. I actually feel bad for him.

    In 2009 I believe. I mainly follow track and field at the Olympics, so all I really know about Jessica Z she's obviously a strong hurdler given that she is also competing in that event separately - does she have a reasonable shot at staying in the top 3 or is it just more of CTV being a homer?

    It was incredible in real life too. The hairs on the back of my neck were standing up during the last heat of the heptathlon 200m (I think other things were standing up for other male spectators ). Was such a void to see three Japanese and an Irish lead the 10000m for the few laps although we knew that would end. Dibaba's finishing kick was a glory to behold!

    Storl almost ran over two of the 10k runners on his way to collect the German flag for his silver celebration.

    I'm sure there's more, but I'm knackered so that'll have to do.

    I was very impressed with the crowd in the stadium. Well done GB - the atmosphere was fantastic.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    C'mon Jess! I don't think I'll be able to watch either.

    The woman who won it just seemed to sprint that final lap - which is damn amazing after 9600 meters running prior Good win for her though.
