    Both races were essentially time trials for Nurmi; although some of Finland's best milers were in the 1500, Nurmi was good enough that he could (and did) ignore them. (Martti Jukola, who was one of...

    Vesa-Matti Peltola and the website of Suomen Urheilutietäjät ry (who should be a very reliable source for this kind of thing) say that

    ...although Paavo Nurmi is often said to have won [the two...

    Liu admitted it was agreed before the finish that she would win; Lu let her win because she was older and more experienced.

    80.27 for Włodarczyk... surely over now. Zhang in 2nd, third medal still up for grabs.

    Koki Manunga (w400h) and Joyce Zakary (w400) have now been named.

    Yego 92.72!

    Can we now call him the greatest steeplechase runner born in Kenya in 1982, or does he still have some way to go?

    Very smart race by Rudisha, yes. Not so smart by Tuka.

    Powell called it after the semis.

    Yeah, the formchart is weird.

    If Yego nails it he could put it out of everybody's reach; I can see him throwing 90+ even here.

    Never happened before; even three athletes have never gone sub-44 in the same race. I doubt it will happen here; wouldn't be surprised if nobody went under 44.

    I like his chances after that 20K...

    Chocho might also be a contender, though he's apparently still wondering if he'll do the 50K.

    Not sure. Tuka seems to like being near the back after the first lap, Borzakovskiy-like; with a fast first lap that's an excellent place to be, but with a slow first lap it just means he's a few...

    I doubt he'd have made the final even if fit; he doesn't run times like that outside Port of Spain and Clermont, which is why he wasn't on the formchart.

    Looks like Tuka got the softest semi; Lewandowski did not look good in heats.

    You can get 9:1 on De Grasse medaling at Betfair... might go up yet.

    If I hadn't guessed it from the title, none of the clues would have helped me any :)

    I assume 5/6/54 is the American date for Bannister's four-minute mile, with Brasher as rabbit.

    I think it's just a section header; as long as it says "Completed" under both "Men" and "Women" you should be good to go.

    I left it a bit late this year, but here's my estimate of the Finnish team's chances in Beijing.

    As usual, most of the team has no chances of medaling (and would exceed expectations by getting a...

    None of them are undeserving of a spot at the World Championships; but apart from Małachowski, I don't think any of them are good enough that the IAAF should have given them a pass if they didn't get...

    Defending champions have shown they can make it on the biggest stage, and there's a good chance they can be in the mix again even if their performances since then have been not so good; think Ibrahim...
