    With those splits, surely both Felix and Okolo have secured their places on one of the 4x4's? At least in the heats, and especially with Wimbley apparently injured.

    Let's face it, the US ALWAYS lift their game in the 4x400. They have to start as favourites. However, there is some weakness this season with no Felix able to pop out a quick leg, which has, more...

    I think she did as expected i.e. finish a few meters behind Francis. Time-wise I wouldn't pay too much attention, it was a cool evening. Importantly she did beat Baumgart and Stepter, who have run...

    Ridiculous because...what, she ran everyone down? Aye, it was remarkable. Not sure ridiculous is the fairest or nicest adjective to use though.

    Interesting Naser is not down. However, after the race in Zurich I thought she looked unusually tired and was sat on the ground for longer than usual. I know 400m running is tough, but she looked...

    I guess shes a 400/200 runner, not 200/400, with her love and focus tipping in favour of the 400. And of course she has unfinished business in that event at the Worlds, finishing 2nd in 2015 and then...
