    They had quite a bit of headwind in the heats, though. All heats were between -1.5 and -2.2

        Yup, same guy. He's a pretty good decathlete, too. And he has another year of junior competition ahead of him :!:

          3 brits in the final of the mens 100m.

          The french runner is looking very impressive and Guilez(sp) is obviously in great form. With a +1 wind there could be fireworks.

          Looking good for a GB bronze as well.

          Also all GB lads through in the 1500, hopefully some PB's and a medal there. Looks like they will need to run their skins out.

            Guliyev is cutting it very fine - 10.69 in his semi, with 4 other guys within 0.06 off him. Had he run 0.04 slower, he wouldn't even have made the final. Is he really just taking it easy or is his form a bit suspect?

            Meanwhile, Lemaitre ran 10.26 (-1.3) in the second semi without serious competition. Even with Guliyev in top form, he might be hard to beat...

              If they run close to 10secs or under it, there is going to be fireworks in the 200 which i presume is both of their preferred event.

              Im hoping the wind changes direction but blows at the same speed.

                Lemaitre isn't doing the 200 here.

                    AZE boast the imported Dibaba, who now looks unlikely to compete because of a falsified passport (which by the way, should result in a ban IMHO ) but not to worry because Layes Abdullayevahas just qualified in the steeple chase with a huge 22 second PB and NJR of 10'18. Is she home grown?

                    At this very minute Hayle Ibrahimov is running away with the men's 10k. Azerbaijan boasting some top juniors. :shock:

                      Again, look at the previous Azerbaijan thread.

                        Probably not - Layes sounds like an Ethiopian name too :?

                          It's going to be an intriguing battle in the men's decathlon tomorrow. Although Gardiner tops the European rankings in the junior-implement decathlon, Sweden's Petter Olsen (who has improved a lot this year but not contested a junior decathlon) should be the favourite to win. If everyone performs to PB level tomorrow, the scores should look something like this:

                          Olsen - 7749
                          Gardiner - 7683
                          van der Plaetsen - 7602
                          Kazmirek - 7569

                          Gardiner had all of his strong events (100, LJ, SP) on day one, but seems to have timed his peak well (three PBs today) so will probably set a few PBs tomorrow. Olsen is a very good pole vaulter (PB of 5.14i) so will bank a lot of points there, and also boasts a much better 1500m PB than the other three mentioned above, so if he is in the lead going into the final event, he should have little trouble bringing home the gold. Van der Plaetsen, the current leader, had a dream day one, setting PBs in every event and banking a lot of points by coming first in the HJ (2.13m). Kazmirek also looks on course for a PB and should definitely be in the hunt for medals, should any of the others slip up.

                            He ran a 47,11 in the 400 m, a time that would have qualified him easily for the 400m individual final.

                                that is not correct, powell. look at the results of the 3 semis. he won his semi. he could have run 11 seconds and still qualified as long as he fiinished in the top 2. the other 2 semis seemed to be more weighted. 6 guys in the other semis finished faster than guliyev and the 2nd place brit and didn't qualify.
