    Beautiful technique!
    Is he really from Qatar??

    Answer: He was born in Doha, so he was not imported!

        Random thought: very cool to have the world record holder in the long jump helping with commentary for the lung jump.

        I'm getting an education just listening to him.

          Standings after three jumps - these are not final results.

            So much for the lifetime unbeaten streak for Williams. Time to retire :P

                Heptathlon final results - 1 point separation between 3rd & 4th. Wow.

                    I had a feeling that Williams might lose her winning streak, although I thought Samuel would be the one to end it. Fair play to Kendrick - she set a PR into the wind and handily disposed of Williams to win USA's first gold. It's a shame Kendrick wasn't in the 100m. It's not often that US sprinters set PRs at the WY/WJ (as they're usually at the end of a long season), so for Kendrick - who has a 11.36 PR - to be here in peak form would have made the 100m interesting.

                    Like someone (Daisy I think?) suggested earlier, it's probably a good thing that Williams' winning streak comes to an end now so that it doesn't become a burden in future. I hope she doesn't get too downbeat - a gold and silver at the WJ is a fantastic achievement, and it's easy to forget that she was by far the youngest in both fields. She could win two more WJ titles in 2012. Kendrick is two years older - when she was Williams' age, she had a PR of 24.32.

                      The #1 seed in the men 200m final is from Japan. Not often you see that.



                      Looks like the board is cropping the image, the times are to the extreme right.

                          She better get used it and learn from it. Stepping up to the Pros at this point in time will come with many many spankings.

                              The IAAF website says that everyone in the heptathlon scored over 21,500 points [sigh].
