Then again maybe not. Some South African pubber wins it. Drug test him ASAP.

Merritt silver. James bronze.

That stadium is so cool typical we have to end up with such a boring unimaginative expensive design.

Damm Julius yego kenyan javelin thrower he belly flopped before the fault line, got a championship record 3rd longest throw ever.


Still a guy on BBC was saying a lot of guys in Kenya get duped to take substances to make it to stardom and out of poverty, athletics is huge there. Hard to trust this javelin thrower is legit specially looking at him lol.

He's not Gay. He doesn't necessarily need a drug test. But if he robbed a British athlete, then drug test away.

A shame Yohan Blake hasn't been healthy.

Comfortably the best track athlete after Bolt.

Triple jump final on. Might see a world record.

I remember watching Jonathan Edwards setting it 20 years ago in Gothenburg. What a night.

400m women final and 200m men's final the highlights today

Bolt must win.

Can't allow Gatlin to have the last laugh.

Enthralling debate earlier on Gatlin on the BBC. His agent criticises BBC and even named Steve Cram who was on commentary for the 100m final. Cram replied back.

Hope Gatlin wins the 200.
