3 Brits in women's 800m final, American Athing Mu strong favourite, but hopefully we'll get our first medal in the Athletics. KO 1.25

brilliant run from Mu to win but Hodgkinson getting a british record for 2nd was brilliant, both 19 as well.

The BBC interview with Hodgkinson is pure gold.

All kicking off in the cycling.
Doesn't look as though we'll be bringing home the bacon.
Definetly the Danes fault!!!

Still surprised the UCI / Olympics allowed them to continue with not one but two bits of blatant rule "bending to breaking limit" in the earlier qualifications.

Yeah, 2nd fastest time ever, no surprise, this looks a very quick track. Mboma looks like she'll be special if someone can teach her how to run a bend.

A good day for the Scandinavians in the track & field today. Duplantis oh so close to the WR in pole vault which would have been a nice end to the evening after Warholm's astonishing WR earlier.

Hard to tell as it likely depends on whether she is forced to take testosterone-reducing drugs in order to continue to compete.

That 400m hurdles is the total of all the Olympics I've watched. That Norwegian bloke is incredible. You don't see WRs smashed like that very often.

The look on his face was great. A bit like the shock on Hitz's face when he scored

Surely that would mean their stride and jump were slightly longer which would throw off their rhythm as they'd end up approaching the hurdle a fraction of a second before they were ready to jump?

Only if you're a clumsy twat, like you or I.

Gutted for KJT but another gold in the horse torturing and that's us finally above the Convicts in the medal table.

Unfortunately back behind the convicts again, think this could be nip and tuck for 4th place in the table.
