    Well done to Bird Smith winning Bronze in the 20k walk. He was so happy.

    Well done to us getting 2 guys into the long jump final. (Probably won't win medals)


    I enjoyed the heats of men's 800m and women's 100m.

    Britains golden girl Jess Ennis- Hill is well on the way to defend her women's heptathlon title, if successful she will be the first British woman to do that.

    I forgot how little the chicks wear in athletics.
    Is that ridiculously hot Russian pole vaulter in Rio or did she get banned with the rest of their dopers?

    Bolt looked like he had a lot more in the tank

    I reckon he'll cruise in the final

    If there's to be an upset, I like the Canadian more than Gatlin.

    Gatlin has a strong first 40 but it's his top speed which lets him down

    Battle for 2nd only imo, can't see bolt being beaten

    That was amazing.

    I'd never even heard of him.

    To break that world record is some feat. I'm in shock!

    He'll run sub 43 one day surely.

    That crowd....if Gatlin were to win? They don't like their dopers.
