London 2017


I was there on Friday as well, sitting right next to the high jump and the water jump. Unfortunately the steeplechase was ruined because I was sitting right behind 3 Americans waving a big flag over their heads every time they came round despite protests and standing up at the end. Fortunately they left before the 200m.

Think we may pick up another medal today (or more), keep an eye out on the 20km walk. Tom Bosworth is now world class and has an outside chance.

I'd rather not. Apologies to Tom.

Women's 50KM walk was a bit farcial. Only 7 competitors because it was arranged last minute and they didn't let two of them finish because they needed to start the 20km race. A third of the men's field were disqualified or didn't finish so they were lucky a similar ratio didn't happen in the women's else they might not have had enough medalists.

 Shouldn't even be an Olympic event. The event is a joke to most.

Certainly a big challenger to tennis mixed doubles in the "at the Olympics - really ?!" contest.

Walks are taken very seriously in some countries - France, Mexico, Korea, Japan, Russia etc. However the rules on bent knee and lifting are very subjective and will improve when the new technology gets the go ahead.
The profile is growing in the UK, but there is a lack of coaches and officials to promote it.
