    I never understand why we are so rubbish at 100m and 200m individually but pretty decent at the relay.

    Gemili went like a fucking rocket and he didn't even make the individual team.

    We have several sprinters of a good standard who will make semi finals whereas other countries may have one outstanding sprinter but not the depth needed to make a good relay team. Case in point, the Netherlands came last in the women's 4x100 but have Dafne Schippers, one of the best sprinters in the world, it's just the other three are nowhere near the same standard.

    Kinda disappointed it's over now, never realised there's so many hot girls in athletics before.
    Good to see we just about scraped our expected medal haul as well, it's quite odd thinking that's the last time we'll see Mo and Bolt on the track.

    Maybe I'm just negative but when the presenters go on about this being the BESTEST EVER athletics events it really pissises me off.

    Perhaps they genuinely felt that.
