    Nigate the young Ethiopean was one of 3 fallers after about 30m before tripping on the approach to the first water jump and colliding with it.

    Zak Seddon is apparently the first British man to make a worldwide 'chase final since 1993.

    For those with long memories, the UK got 3 in the first 6 at the first WC in 1983!

    Colin Reitz got the bronze after Henry Marsh, who'd been in 2nd, tripped on the last barrier while trying to catch Ilg.

    Reitz was asked - pretty bluntly - if he thought that devalued his medal; and he replied, equally bluntly, that clearing the barriers was part of the event.

    Kipruto was clowning in the last 150. Seemed ridiculous. He has nothing on Ezekiel Kemboi!

    Who was the starter of the men's Steeplechase? And why didn't he restart the race after the fall that occurred in the first 30 meters?

    Doesn't that just happen in the NCAA and US High school meets? (I've always thought it daft that it does.)

    I've never seen it in a meeting other than those.

    After they've gone a few steps I don't think the starter actually has any authority to stop the race.
