In the morning session;


Women's 400m Hurdles Eilidh Child, Megan Beesely and Perri Shakes-Drayton.

Peri's in great shape. I'm sure, somewhat looking forward to making up for London.

Men's 400m Hurdles
Sebastian Rodger, Rhys Williams and Dai Greene.

Dai desperate to defend hbis title and coming into the World Championships well short of form, hampered by stop-start season / niggles.

Will Sharman in the 110 Hurdles. Looking difficult for him there. Though he doesn't lack confidence and has a proven ability to raise his game when it matters. But this is looking very hard this year.

Women's 100m semi's and final. We have Asha Philip but she would need to get close to the British record to get into the final ( i.e. 11.1 weather permitting ). We need Kwakye back!! ( 2008 Beijing Finalist ); and Jodie williams ( though she goes in the 200m )

From the contendors, most seem to favour Shelly-Ann Fraser - who is also my favourite. She is looking like she has something special in the tank. Okabare for 2nd?! Jeter is not looking like she is yet at her best and will be tough for her to realistically defend ( would have been tough enough even if she was fit - instead, looking a truly tall order! ).

Women's 400m Final

Amontsho the narrow favourite. But Ohorogou looking immensely strong. 49.75s in her semi. She looks in great condition, lean / sharp. She's an immensely strong and gutsy competitor. It may take a new British Record to win the title - she indeed still break the British record and not win! For me, being a Brit, the event that I'm looking forward to most. Good luck Christine!!

Not having been able to keep up with results - just finding things out;

Will Sharman has made it through to the final of the men's 110m hurdles. My word!! Well done to the man!! Didn't think he had it in him...

...and now the 110m hurdles final...

Absolutely Dave! Quite incredible. I'm sure most would have seen that gap as just too much...but she did it!

She's amazing. Time and time again she pulls a top performance out in a major championship final. She was so close last year in the olympic final. But yesterday made up for that, incredible finish.

her most amazing feat is never failing a drugs test.....though she was banned for dodging them 3 times of course.

Missing a test due to double-booking of training facilities is not proof of guilt.

She was tested days before and days after and passed no problem. She has been tested many, many times since and passed.

You're right to be suspicious, what with the number of athletes testing positive recently, and you should be equally as suspicious of every other athlete out there, but there is no evidence of her using PEDs. None.

she "double booked" her third missed test. what about the other 2?

i think her stamina way beyond that of her contemporaries is consistent with that of other banned athletes.

she seems to be un-competitive all year round outside of the major championships yet has a major boost when it counts at world champs or Olympics. maybe this can be put down to having a good schedule but to me it seems a bit far fetched.

Good to see a thread about these champs, thanks to Strawberry Jam Very Happy

From a Brit perspective: Farah and Ohuruogu deliver. For Farah it was an almost routine win, and it continues to amaze me that his opponents don't try more to upset his rhythm. Fantastic achievement by a guy who is right up there with the all-time greats now surely. Trademark last lap finish and never in doubt. Has a great chance to double up in the 5000 too now.

Ohuruogu was simply superb, she's looked in the best shape of her life this year, and looked very much on for a PB here. To grab Gold and a British record in the bargain is a magnificent achievement. A word on Montsho though: why on earth did she not dip at all for the line? If she dips she nicks it. Did she just not feel Ohuruogu there? Regardless, fantastic run from Ohuruogu.

Johnson-Thomson has had a very good outing in the heptathlon with three successive PBs now (200m, long jump and javelin), she has an outside chance at what would be an excellent medal, though I'm not sure she can beat Schipper by 3 seconds in the 800 so have a feeling she'll finish fourth. A real star for the future for sure.

A lot of semi-final appearances, but quite a few below par efforts there (Phillips, HAA, Levine). Dasaolu did well to reach the final (first sub-10 run in a major championship by a Brit in donkey's years), and needs to now work on moving through the rounds, but the potential is there. All three Brits through to the semis in both the men and women's 400 hurdles, though the men may struggle to go further. PSD looked strong, and Child surely has a decent chance of making the final as well. Grabbarz did well this morning, might he be finding some form at the perfect time?

Three more medals strong possibilities: PSD, Farah and the women's 4x400 relays. A few more possibles too (Rutherford, Johnson-Thompson, men's 4x100 relay...). I suspect it will be more about quality than quantity for GB though overall.

The other 2 tests she missed because she wasn't where she was supposed to be on those occasions. Athletes had to submit an itinery of where they would be at certain times every day. She wasn't where she had planned to be. It happens. She didn't know that the testers where going to turn up on those specific days. After reviewing all the evidence, The Court of Abitration for Sport concluded that....

"There is no suggestion, nor any grounds for suspicion, that the offence may have been deliberate in order to prevent testing."


As for her stamina being "way beyond that of her contemporaries....consistent with that of other banned athletes" I'm not quite sure what you mean. She paces herself for the first 300m and then winds up the pace in the last 100m. That's called tactics and a a total knowledge and belief in her abilities. That's how she trains. Look at how Montsho races. She runs an even pace for the entire 400m. Had she ran the race as Christine did, she may have won. In fact it was only Christine's dip on the line that made the difference in the end.

Also look at the winning time. A PB and national record. Compare it with the world record set during a period when Eastern Europeans were well known for doping. See how much slower Christine ran?

As for being 'uncompetitive' all year round, that's called peaking at the right time. Her training will be tailored specifically to do this. Nothing at all unusual about that. Athletes have been doing this for decades.

decent start by the Brits this evening. both Child and PSD get through to the final, with PSD finishing strongly to dip below 54 seconds, though I suspect unless something goes very wrong Hesjnova will be too strong in the final. Megan Beesley ran a PB in the first semi, but just misses out on a final spot by 3 hundreths of a second, good effort.
