    I've done it at events with non-allocated seating with necessary breaks. Being 6'2" comfort can be a bit of an issue!

    I think LA in '84 had a timetable that accommodated the 200/400 double without any changes.

    But there isn't an event that the athlete has zero intention of competing in. They have zero intention of doing both events. I suppose the thing to do is to say that you cannot enter both events when...

    I doubt whether the Russian federation would be entering them when they are suspended from the IAAF and they will not be representing Russia. There must be some kind of arrangement. I don't know if...

    They are athletes who are Russian rather than Russia's team.

    I would be very surprised indeed if Russia was to be reinstated for Doha.

    I assume some of these are largely down to just 1 or 2 jumpers. Havana is presumably all or almost all Sotomayor. Stockholm while it has big meets is probably boosted by Sjoberg and Holm in...

    I'm not sure if they do on the BBC. They might sometimes have 'red-button' coverage of live action when they are not broadcasting on their main channels.

    I've just checked and the last day of track and field in the stadium was October 1st with the men's Marathon on the 2nd.

    This is where things can start to get a little complicated. St Denis is in the Metro Area of Paris (pop. c10m) but not the City of Paris (pop c2.5m). However, no-one, for example, refers to the 2003...
