    I will be forever grateful for seeing OR22 after health issues almost prevented it. And that was after having to cancel London 2017 because of health issues. I have been to and officiated OT and OG but WC was on the bucket list. Now I can put a check mark next to it.

    Hang in there, everyone. Only 12 days till the next DL meet (Silesia). Those hallucinations and shakes (which will get worse before they get better) will go away then.

    I am definitely wiped out from doing stat summaries after every event for the media preceded by doing all the stat previews for them. Unfortunately, I agreed to do the Commonwealth Games as well but then time for a rest

    Four WRs in the US in a single year. Have to think that hasn't happened in quite a while. The logical candidate to look at would be '96, but can only think of the three obvious ones offhand.

    Yeah, makes sense. The British commentator speculated whether both 100H WRs got $100 bonus before reporting the second WR was negated by wind.

    With the prices they were asking for morning tickets, I never thought morning sell outs were remotely possible.
