No idea who that is but Michael Johnson has backed Asher-Smith for gold in Tokyo

Big ask with the Yanks and Jamaicans coming in but shes the best Europe has to offer and needs to steer clear of injuries which she has had a few of

A marathon runner just shattered a record by 1 minute and 18 seconds.

How is that physically possible? Christ.

Can't really judge much from that win tbh.

Thompson, Fraiser-Pryce, Schippers, Ta lou and Sahuane Miller were all absent.

Not her fault and congrats on the Gold but she was up against a super weak field.

Olympics will be really interesting though.

Anyway Sudney McLaughlin in the main event Friday.

She's beaten them all over the season. She might not have in the final but then again she might have.

As Michael Johnson said, bigger tests will come but she deserves this for her season, not just tonight.

Dear god Jamaicans don't even qualify for the men's 100m relay

Bolt retiring finished them.

USA won the gold. GB silver with a European and British record. Yanks too good though

Jamaica won women's version. GB with silver.
