    Anyone else really enjoying the TV coverage of this ;-)

    Also I went on Sat night for the 100M final what a night out and no one cared if Bolt won or lost really ;-)

    Saw Laura Muir in the 1500m at the Stadium last night, the crowd was fantastic.
    Not sure how West Ham fans can say there is no atmosphere at the London Stadium.

    Been watching a fair bit of it. Enjoying it so far but sick of showboating cunts like Mo F. Never liked that little cunt. Some fat bitches swinging the hammer too.

    Yes I've been watching it and enjoying it.

    I thought fair play to Gatlin to be honest. OK he did bad, but the rules say he's done his time, so he's eligible to compete. The crowd were being unduly mean I felt with the constant booing.

    I like Bolt like most other people, but the constant Bolt love-fest was starting to make me feel queasy

    Didn't see Jenneke as missed the hurdles. Does she still do her warm up?

    I think the booing wasn't too unjust as Gatlin was pantomime villain and to be fair he deserves it, banned for drug cheating once you could accept but he has been banned twice!!!??

    This [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] shows why the Usain love-in if you look at the graph at the bottom you see Usains times against all the disqualified ones ;-)

    Also it probably apt that Gatlin won as after the initial booing everyone ignored him and that guy who come second (he might as well had a red star trek top on as he was certainly the unnamed dead guy) Which if was someone else and that was their moment of being on top of the world and to injure that would not be fair on them.

    You could say similar about Caster Semenya (the one who had to prove she was a woman) and her naturally raised Testosterone, she is only allowed to compete on a technicality which the IAAF is trying to close, her increased testosterone level gives her about a 2% advantage over the rest of the competition.

    But then on the flip side you have Bradley Wiggins using his Asthma inhaler which is a condition that directly effects his performance.

    So just because Gatlin as ADD does that mean it is ok to have stimuli in his system which gives him an advantage?

    Is grey areas but with the Isaac Makwala not being allowed to race last night due to might having the Novo Virus then IAAF seem to punish at the first sniff of smoke ;-)
