Always have this kind of face when I'm watching the relay :dread:

Our women have done great qualifying, they were just pipped at the line. Nigeria dropped the baton :dread:

Mens 4x100m qualifying now, Gemili isn't in it. Please. Don't. Drop. The. Baton. :dread: :dread: :dread:

Love seeing a middle distance runner just go for it from the start, I hate it when they walk round 90% of the way and sprint the last 50 metres only to finish in a time that everyone in the field can do easily.

Great effort by the American woman in that 800m, gutted she just missed out on a bronze.

Yeah I really felt for her, she made a great gap. It's not much fun to watch everyone take it easy while they wait for someone to go for it, shame it didn't pay off for her.


FUUUUUUUCK RELAY HOLY gooseberry fool :o :o :o :o
Ach blimey. We did good there, just didn't have the same pace on that last leg. Haley's abs of strawberry floating steel.

Why did GB persist with the same girl on the final leg of that relay final as they did in the heat? In both races she was nowhere near good enough.

Oh, they've just explained that she was subbed in. Fair enough.

That looked an incredibly slow final leg, should have had our hurdler in there. Changes were good but if some of your runners can't get under 12 seconds you're never really going to have a hope.

The German relay team really look like a group of evil villains :lol:

Come on GB. Chambers did such a great finish in the heat.

So useless at relays :lol: every time.

So gb below medal target,

Take out Mo and it wasn't the best for gb. Lets hope the youth are coming through.

Russia have done amazingly. Back to being a force.

Anyone else watching, bad timing with the GP but will definitely flick over for the 100m final.

Yep I'm watching. I know we should never doubt Usain but he's looked off all weekend and Gatlin is looking very strong.

Gatlin could run 9:6x here
