  • So, let's talk records.....

    That I am aware of, these are the track records (WRs and ORs) that went down in this OGs (not to mention all the NRs and ARs set at these games):
    m 100m
    m 200m
    m 4x100m relay
    w 3000SC
    ...and really, for my money, the w 10,000m too (even if the IAAF doesn't think so)
    w PV
    and WJRs in:
    w 10,000m
    w 800m

    all WRs plus
    w 10,000m (I guess this is where they'll put it)
    m 5000m
    m 10,000m
    m marathon
    m 4x400m relay
    w hammer
    w 400mH
    w 20km walk
    m 50km walk
    m PV
    m javelin
    and unofficially - m 1500m qualifying round record (is that right?)

    OK, wow, that's a lot actually. Did I miss any? Track and field was great to watch overall, imo. Even though my jingoistic distance runner bones ache for our lack of showing in 800m and up. Nevertheless, it was thrilling watching the action...albeit about 20 hours tape-delayed.
