Yeah, think one of the ones I saw was a Pakistani athlete. Obviously they're thrilled to be there, and rightfully so. I just know I'd feel slightly agreived if I was losing by that margin though

Was the biggest race in his career to date though, imo.
Bronze for Australia in the 20km walk, but Tallent apparently isn't happy with the winner. Sort of makes him sound like a bit of a poor loser, but then all the bannings etc. surrounding the winner and his coach sort of make you wonder. http://www.foxsports.com.au/beijing_...014107,00.html
I did not know drugs were an issue in walking.
Bolt impressive again. No false start in that semi either, which I found quite astonishing.
Haha, jogging last 20 metres and still runs 9.8s. Awesome.

Impressive 20.56 in Vili's first attempt in the women's shotput final, 2m ahead of the nearest rival so far.

Definitely. But she's certainly started well. 20.40 second attempt, no others have hit 20 yet.
Rose's first good call in four years on the site

Should be a great final. Means I'll have a short night in bed but it'll be worth it.
Vili still leading in the shotput with that first attempt, in the second to last round now...
