    Didn't catch Powell's heat but saw Bolt cruise home in first with ridiculous ease, as you say the final 10 metres was basically a jog. It'll be one hell of a final thats for sure.

    Again Bolt jogs in.

    9.92? No way! He didn't get out of second gear!

    Wonder what pace he bowled at.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    Tyson Gay will not make the final. Powell and Bolt will be 1 and 2 in the final. You saw it here first.

    Would love Bolt to get up - as my bet is ****ed if he doesn't.

    Bolt's definitely looked the most convincing in the first 2 rounds.

    Very nice first shotput attempt by Vili. The best of the qualifying round so far.

    A sign of things to come, hopefully.

    Yay endless heats with false starts...

    ffs, just highlight it and give it to us in two minutes and show something with medals actually at stake.

    Must be devastating for the runners in the 100m who're losing by upwards of 3 seconds (in the Womens heats, didn't see the men),

    That's like the Iraqis and so forth, right? Trip of their lives I reckon, regardless of result.
