    Haha. I had no plans to get up to watch it myself, didn't think he had a hope of a medal. That's some confidence, isn't it? Very happy to stand corrected this morning.

    2 medals in a night. Was thinking we wouldn't get any in the Athletics.

    Maybe one or two more...Oduwu/Womens 4*400?

    Vague-ish prayer for minor medals in both the men's relays too.

    Our local heroine Goldie might not choke in the javelin this time either, although think she's world no.4 on form anyway.

    Špotáková throws 68 with one hand on her back. Sayers' record is 65.05...
