is running at the front more difficult for any physical reason or is it just psychological

More air resistance. See the same in cycling with drafting and benefit of 'sitting on' the leader.

Re: World athletics championships AKA GOATlin

Many surprises so far, but the 'main events' have generally been anticlimactic, I feel like. Too bad there was no real competition in the 400 tonight. Makes a very quick 200m more likely I guess, but there the field is thin as well.

Re: World athletics championships AKA GOATlin

It made me start to think Makwala might have changed his story. Perhaps realised it was looking like he might not be allowed to run and then tried to claim he was only sick once instead of what it seems he initially told the doctor?

Obviously the IAAF still handled it very poorly, particularly the lack of communication throughout the day.

Re: World athletics championships AKA GOATlin

iaaf clicking random buttons

Quote:
Botswana's Isaac Makwala will run an individual time trial in an attempt to qualify for the 200m semi-finals at the World Championships in London.

Makwala, 30, missed the 200m heats and the 400m final as he was barred from competing for 48 hours while organisers tried to halt a norovirus outbreak.

He came out of quarantine at 14:00 BST today, and his qualification race will be in London Stadium at 18:40.

The 200m semi-finals take place at 20:55.

The IAAF said it made the decision after having received a written request from the Botswanan federation for Makwala to compete.

"Following a medical examination which has declared him fit to compete, we have agreed under our existing rules that assuming he makes the qualification time, he will run in the 200m semi-final round this evening,
glad he gets to compete tho

Re: World athletics championships AKA GOATlin

18:40 Makwala time trial

19:05 - Women's 3,000m steeplechase first round

19:10 - Women's long jump qualifying

19:20 - Men's hammer throw qualifying

20:05 - Men's 5,000m first round

20:25 - Women's shot put final

20:50 - Men's hammer qualifying

20:55 - Men's 200m semi-finals

21:30 - Men's 400m hurdles final

21:50 - Women's 400m final

not thrilled with today altho makwala going twice in a short space of time will be interesting. i expect he'll get a big response from the crowd. women's 400 final will be worth a watch and long jump qualifying for hotness (a general trend is that the hottest ones tend to be awful so keep an eye out for the no hopers)

womens shot put will be china vs usa for gold, loser has to invade north korea

The Kenyan steaplechaser celebrating with 50 meters to go (and a 1 meter lead) was amazing. It needs a gif to preserve history
