    Qinggang 89.15! Where did that come from? As you said, PB by 6 meters. He had only one other meet this season where he was over 80, went 81.18 last spring. The guy's been around and is almost 30 now.
    Great throws from Arai and Zaygtsev as well, but not PB's.
    It sure seems the Javelin is gradually turning into a"world" event.

    Dang . . . half a second is an eternity in the 4x1.
    That's a priority for the ol' USofA. I'm certainly not saying that Jamiaca's days at the top are numbered, but Mssrs. Bolt and Powell ain't getting much younger and Blake has had trouble getting his act together. Even with Gatlin and Gay and Rodgers leaving sometime soon, I gotta believe the pendulum's long slow swing is a comin' back . . . (he said knowing a flame war would erupt with those words).

    Really impressive marks! These Asian Games provided great highlights, I wasn't expecting such good results! This makes me think that: 1) A lot of the asian people peaked for this event which was meant to be the most important of the season for a lot of them 2) They will be a force to compete with next year at WC in China. I expect very good marks from the chinese when it happens.

    What's really disappointing is that it was a very good race with a eyeballs out head-to-head down the home straight. To then DQ almost half the field on what look a lot like trumped charges looks like extreme over-officiating. Any word on which teams might have protested (if any) so as to trigger the DQ-fest?

    What was surprised is that the one DNF was from a fall that seemed to be completely the athlete's own fault (he fell while in 8th!).

    It looks like there could easily be lane-line violations starting relatively early on, especially the guy who was in Lane 5 who crossed the finish line second.

    Another take on this. As Bahrain’s Abraham Rotich was subsequently disqualified, presumably at the 100m mark of the race, one could perhaps argue that it was not possible to impede a runner who had already "committed" his disqualifying offence, and was therefore no longer part of the race.

    Had another look. It seems like Mohammad might have touched the hand/arm of the runner in front of him and to his right; and that that runner did realize he had been touched but I don't think you could even remotely claim he was impeded.

    The crossing over lane violations looks to me like complete BS, if I am looking at the right spot in the race at the end of the first bend.

    It looks to me that Saudi Arabia’s Abdulaziz Ladan Mohammed got shafted by the officials. As they crossed the 400m mark it looks like Mohammed had his heel clipped from the runner behind him and as he tripped/stumbled, he put his hand out and appears to have lightly touched (definitely not pushed as far as I could tell) the runner in front of him. There was certainly no impeding of the runner he touched and I doubt that runner even knew if he had been touched as it is possible Mohammed just touched the runners bib.

    I also looked at the crossover points for the alleged lane violations of Musaeb Balla and Abraham Rotich. I couldn't see anything so if those violations happened they must have been incredibly marginal.
