It’s all about Mondo

An outdoor 6.20m would be tremendous

last leg of the 4x400 mixed final was exciting

USA picked an annoyingly weakened team, but still

Could have been very nasty for Bradshaw. Glad she seems ok

Nice to see Botswana’s 19yo Letsile Tebogo break the U20 Men’s 100m record in the heats with 9.94s

And Zharnel Hughes going sub 10 in his heat at 9.97s was impressive too

Hope one of them breaks up a US 1-2-3 in the final

Such a shame that the evening finals in Oregon are at wildly anti-social European times

Especially as the rest of the world panders to them when they’re not in America.

Quite odd seeing USA take 123 in the Men’s 100m. Completely out the loop with sprinting now, hadn’t heard of any of them.

Oblique is one of the coolest first names I’ve ever seen imo

Just watched the whole finals session from last night as if it were live

Such a disappointment that Tebogo & Hughes didn’t make it out of their semis, both had bad problems with their starts. Kerley massively lucky to take the gold right on the line

Asher-Smith looked amazing in her heat as did Neita

Gutted for the Greek guy in the long jump final, disappointing from Sweden’s Montler as well - still, the European Championships are only a couple of weeks away
