    And yes it is good to see a substantial numbers of Qatari fans in the audience rather than rent-a-crowd.

    Well deserved and extra credit for having to deal with the hopes of a nation in order to pull out a win for Barshim. He was flying high today and likely would have gone a bit higher under normal competitive circumstances.

    Looked as good as he ever has at the high heights. I'm confident that he could have gone 2.40+ tonight, but no need. Very happy for him to win in front of the home crowd. As he said in the camera, "This is my house"!
    If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

    Why have a medal ceremony after everyone has gone home?

    Are you suggesting they just mail it to the winners? The ceremony is not just for the ticket buyers.
