Bit of a turn up China's Chengtsung Pan beats Open champion Morikawa to win bronze.

Nice to see the San Marinos, Fijis and Irelands of this world getting their moment in the sun.

Three great examples of smaller independent nations punching above their weight at The Olympics. However it does make me realise how fortunate we are and yearn for the day when athletes from the likes of Tibet and Scotland can throw off the yoke of oppression and also compete freely under their own flags.

Ben Whitaker has just credited McGrath as well, with getting him to the gold medal match.
Unless he was who CD meant, earlier, and I was watching a repeat of an interview.

I was on about the 100 metres champion Elaine Thompson-Herah. McGrath this, McGrath that. She wouldn't shut up about him.

Letís not forget Ireland didnít even get going in the Olympics until 1924 because of the neighbours.

Rojas of Venezuela already has the triple jump gold medal in the bag then chucks in a world record in her final jump. Brilliant stuff.

That's a bizarre precedent in the high jump. If fifteen of them are level after the first round can they just say "we don't want to jump any more, give us a gold each please"?

One false start=disqualification? That's shit.

It used to be two, no? Or at least it was on my copy of Olympic Gold on the Sega Megadrive :)

It's harsh but it's been in place for awhile now. 15 years maybe? I remember Bolt being a victim of it (Korea?).

Haha, cheers pal. I think the last time I watched the Olympics before this one was the 100m final in Atlanta when Linford got chucked out.

They would all need to have failed out which would be extraordinary and could only really happen if the bar had been set too high to start. Or they all passed in which case there is a higher jump available. These guys had left everyone behind and were level on count back after failing the height. They are presumed to be unable to go higher and have already cleared the increment below. So long story short all good. Can only happen in high jump and pole vault (and maybe weights idk).

Especially as she looked to have bailed on the jump. Very happy Mamona got silver, she seems ahem lovely.

Agreed BV Patricia is total quality. The men's 100M final was a bit of a shock. Jacobs has bucked the trend.
