    Hallelujah!
    The evening finals are from 8p -11p in Brazil, which means on the USA East Coast (aka the RIGHT coast), it'll be from 5:00p - 8:00p - Perfect!

      It will actually be 1 hour difference in the Summer, so 1900-2200 EDT.

          Two thoughts...

          1500/5000 double would be impossible for men.

          I wish they put women's marathon on the second Saturday. (That could have made 10000/marathon double possible.) 10000/marathon double is possible for men. But would any one try?

                        Olympic Schedule

                        Cool schedule, but only an hour and a half between 100 SF and F, I forget, is that normal?

                          "Carriage returns". Wow! That's a phrase have haven't come across in a long time. I remember when it actually meant what it said.

                            Oh, you mean when the family chauffeur came back with your two-horse carriage after doing the morning errands?
                            I'm not that old. I just remember how much I hated typing class.

                              Cool.. Cant wait to watch the toughest event on the planet the 400 meter dash be run on 3 back to back to back days..

                              Makes sense though..

                              ONly in this world and only in this universe would running the toughest event in the history of the universe on 3 consecutive days make any sense at all..

                              THe human body needs exactly 96 hours or 4 full days to recover from a lifting session, track race, distance race, etc...

                              That is the exact time frame that it takes muscles to fully recover from the stress of any type of workout or event..

                              But hey lets run all 3 races on back to back to back days..

                              Makes sense..

                              yeah that should be fun..

                              Should produce all time world records.. yeah

                              Because we dont have the time to space things out.. Yeah .. Lets just cram everything together..

                              And i dont want to hear about thats why they run slow in the first two heats.. any type of running at all before running the toughest event on earth is not going to produce peak times..

                              The event needs more professional restructuring...

                              Or was the time table of heats and finals just there to make me laugh? Because yeah im laughing.. Its a joke right? oh ok.. Yeah im laughing..

                              Lets wear out the 400 meter runners before they even get to the final... yeah makes sense.

                              one should not even walk around too much 4 days before running a 400 all out.. let alone running.. wow.... Makes perfect sense though.. only in this world and only in this universe..
