I just love our Athletics squad.

The dedication they put in makes footballers training a joke.

Roll on Rio.

Michael's Golden Gong, comedy sound effects....wtf the BBC? Also, why have a reporter in the crowd along with a commentator? It's like the One Show meets Newsround.

Bolt chopped him. I hate Gatlin so much letting a cheat race.

I think that was the most enjoyable 200m final I can remember watching.

I don't really care about athletics but it's a crazy story.

I think you've missed the point. In fact you've missed the whole round base point is sitting on.

Russia has been suspended by a vote of 22-1.

Some will say it's unfair on the clean Russian athletes but I can't help but feel it's the right decision. Unless there is massive changes in the Russian set up their presence would taint the Rio games.

I see BBC have got the TV rights for the next 5 Olympic games...Good...they're pretty damn good at it and I'd hate to see some one like ITV fuck it up. Plus its advert free.

Russian Athletes have been banned from Rio!

Great call from Seb there. Still at least they have the WC to look forward too in 2 years time.
