    And eliminated as a DL event, which means no participation in the DL final and its prize money.

    ##2,6,9,10 in the event won 4x4 gold in 2:56.69, a time that has only been bettered (slightly) by one other nation.

    GB ran 2:56.60 at Atlanta '96 and 2:56.65 at WC following year.

    Yes, DB did run Amos down at the line in Zurich when DB ran even splits and Amos ran 48/54. Amos would still have been favorite...

    Very true but with Doha in rear view and looking forward, I'd say all fourteen golds are plausibly capable of being defended. None were flukes or achieved by athletes at the end of their careers.

    14 golds ties with 05 Helsinki and 07 Osaka for most ever at WC.

    It is also more than at any Olympics since 84 L.A. when it was 16.

    16 is the record since 1904 and has been done a few times.

    Muir finished fifth and is going home with deserved zip. So, really,...
