That was one of the gutsiest performances ever. Super inspiring. It really looked like she was done with 2k to go. Wow!

I'm pumped for the W1500 tonight! I think Simpson might get another medal!

Amazing stretch run for Simpson to snag silver! Gutted for Muir getting outleaned by Semenya.

Remarkable run by Bosse! And Jager looked tired with 600 to go. His dry hurdles looked labored.

My family and I are enjoying the championship.The meet opened with a real bang with Mo Farrah defeating the Kenyans, Ethiopians, and Ugandans who all appeared to be working together against him. The fans went crazy as Farrah once again figured out a way to win. He runs tonight in the 5k prelim. The atmosphere for the meet is outstanding. The morning sessions all have at least 75% attendance while the evening sessions are completely packed. The fans will go completely silent for the start of the sprints and the appear to be rooting for all the competitors( except Justin Gatlin).

Paddy Power has Centrowitz at 16/1 odds for winning the 1500m. Seems like an absurdly good deal for those goats abroad.

I didn't think anything could top that performance by Cragg, Coburn and Frerichs going 1-2 against that field? Truly incredible. I think if Quigley hadn't been questionably DQed in the semi, they might have swept. And Frerichs! A 15 second PR at the World Championships!

Quigley has great closing speed. 1-2-3 would have been very possible.

Mo Farrah was finally beaten! I think he wasn't quite at his best after the difficult 10 k. The Brits seemed to handle it well and were very supportive of Farrah and polite to the winner.

This meet was amazing top to bottom. Probably my favorite meet ever for all the great and exciting performances. Watching worlds is so much better than the Olympics.

Re: W800, I can't help but think that Ajee (reasonable case for her doping notwithstanding) was in a different race than 1-2. I wonder how history will view the place of of Semenya and others with Hyperandrogenism in women's competition.
