    I agree with DoubleRBar that the men's TJ would be the most anticipated, assuming that I was in the stadium watching. Unfortunately, I am in the US hoping that coverage on the TV is not abysmal. I...

    I ran for Ted Haydon at UChicago, and I'm pretty certain that he had a habit of rounding down times for guys so they could get past a mental barrier. This was mostly mid-pack distance guys, but the...

    Men's 400m, with Butch Reynolds breaking the 1968 record of Lee Evans in 1988. Technically a couple of months short of the full 20 years, but close enough.

    Tuka seemed motivated. He had written on the back of his bib about the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre. And, yes, I had to look up the spelling. But good on him.
