    Greaux looked amazing. Francis looked smooth. Gemili ran with some frustration in his legs. I think the final is shaping up better than I thought it would. How many under 20?

    I agree. The Jamaicans are out (even though they made the semi) and outside Lyles so are the Americans. But I like the depth from the other countries.

    Are the semis and finals on Tuesday? IAAF app says semis are tomorrow but the commentator on the IAAF live stream kept saying they have tomorrow off.

    Semi and finals the next 2 days. No day off for them.


    Semi start-list is interesting. Fairly even out as far as Round 1 performances. Name wise tho, Semi 1 is the toughest.

    Semi 1 - Guliyev, Gemili, Richards, Aaron Brown
    Semi 2 - Quinonez, Lyles, Xie, Francis
    Semi 3 - Blake, Hughes, De Grasse, Greaux

    Yea they were off the whole time about the schedule say athletes have a day rest. They also were making it seem as if finishing 2nd in your heat was doomsday and you would get lane 1 or 2 in the semis.
    Pretty much any of the top 2 heat winners got good lane draws.

    To be in lane 1 or 2 you would have to be one of the 4 slowest 3rd placers or one of the 3 time qualifiers. The fastest 5 of the 7 second placers would be in the draw for the middle lanes with the heat winners.

    Odudoru will likely never run as fast as he did in the NCAA's again.
