Isn't that big TDK sign behind the athletes going to block the view? It looks like a lot of people in the crowd are watching the big screen instead of the athletes.

Bolts retiring at age 30, but Gatlins still going at 35. I wonder what the secret to his longevity is? :confused:

I had tickets for last night, the noise on the last lap was incredible. That stadium can produce an atmosphere, just not when it's full of West Ham fans.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson ballsed up the high jump this morning. She's unquestionably got the talent, she just doesn't seem to have the mentality to put together an error free heptathlon when it really matters at a major championship.

They were saying in the commentary that they've changed the way that she approaches the jump. It makes you wonder if she's comfortable with those changes.
