    Indeed. The chances of getting four athletes of that level from one country at the same time are pretty much out there. Bahrain would have to offer SMU, Sherika Jackson and SM $50m each to switch...

    I don't get though. Don't officials position the athletes? The commentators on the IAAF feed were talking as though it is the athletes that position themselves. That seems daft. Or did the officials...

    Interesting. I actually assumed she had a poor time as the gap to Poland was nowhere close to as big as I had expected.

    I can't help but feel this light show is slightly discriminatory. Why wasn't there a show for the women's 400m hurdles and 100m hurdles. Although to be fair I don't remember if there was one for the...

    Actually your suggestion makes it far far far worse. The Jamaican men who ran the mixed relay I believe are running the men's 4x400m. Same possible for Polish women. Your suggestion would mean they...

    What happened to the little guy that won bronze at Olympics (or was it Worlds?). Finished behind Dr Grasse in NCAA 100m and 200m. Sorry my memory isn't what it used to be.

    Yes but in this championship where the events finish so late at night and all the fans have to rush home it doesn't seem ideal at all. Don't think the medalists would like receiving their medals in...

    Just wondering - unlike long jump and triple jump where the sand is cleared there are like a million holes where the shot puts land. Unlike the javelin that tends to stick in the ground so you know...

    I'm guessing Botswana's come leg runner has never run a 4x400m relay in his life. Either that or they have led every relay he has run.

    So no hurdlers unless they have changed the rule. Pity and seems like a wasted opportunity. Felix is the past and is not ego would give the gold so why not allow the present and future get the relay...

    Has there ever been a major global champs where UK won gold in both men's and women's 4x100m? If both their teams get the baron round I think it looks more likely than unlikely.

    Wow is that 2nd semi the greatest 4x100m ever? Can't believe Canada are out. Thought they would be strong bet for bronze. Their first change over was super safe and I assume it was the same all round...

    For some reason IAAF considers WL to be superior to AR which I consider to be odd. Never quite understood why they don't write both though.

    Wow this shows how amazing the races in 2016 and to a lesser extent 2015 were. Does anyone know why there were 9 in the Rome World Champs?
