Shame they didn’t steal the rest of him. :shuffle:

It's a shame they couldn't get Puddles, but, alas, I doubt Disney would have gone for that. ;)

ETA - I guess that The Oregon Duck isn't actually named Puddles anymore/ever, but still...

Watching the women’s 5000m prelims - I guess Konstanze Klosterhalfen 🇩🇪 is still recovering from her injuries from last year? She was such an up and comer for Tokyo and won 🥉 in this event at the 2019 Worlds in Doha.

Gidey 🇪🇹 should really consider moving to the marathon after 2024 - I think that’s she’ll be superb. Maybe Hassan 🇳🇱 too.

🇺🇸 men’s 800m = 👎

Donovan Brazier is still hurt and he said in the post race interview that he’s having surgery next week, so I understand his performance. But I don’t get why Hoppel or Miller couldn’t get out of prelims. You have to respect the rounds.

And Koech has now been DQed…….GEESH!

Women’s 400m hurdles semifinals

Muhammad 🇺🇸 and Bol 🇳🇱 looked great!

Sydney McLaughlin 🇺🇸 basically jogged the last 80m and still ran 52.17. 😱

Sydney’s breaking her world record in the final on Friday. Maybe by a lot.

Now I’m wondering what she could do in the regular 400m…………

Women’s 400m semifinals

Miller-Uibo 🇧🇸 jogged the last 100m to a 49.55. My god.

And……no Americans will make the final. That has to be a first, right?

They are in a very low state, low considering their tradition.

Glad they have other non 400m specialist, so the 4x400m Relay is not in danger, I think it will consist of Athing Mu, Sydney McLaughlin, Dalilah Muhammad and Abby Steiner

Shocking result in the Discus Throw, chinese girl took the gold from the big favourite Valarie Alman who could not handle the pressure of having to defend in front of her home country and ended taking the Bronze medal, very disappointed she looked. Sandra Perkovic won the silver medal, her fifth world championship medal

I know track teams are ubiquitous in US middle/high schools and universities but what is the set-up in your country? How does a talent like Femke Bol emerge?

The US 1-2-3 in the 100m and 200m

On paper, they should dominate yet the BIG question is will they crash AGAIN in the 4x100 relay? Semifinals tonight!!!

Though Fred Kerley is out of contention given his recent injury

The 🇺🇸 men’s 4x100m relay is notorious for getting DQ or dropping the baton. 😬

I think the 🇯🇲 women have a real shot of breaking the world record in the 4x100m.
