Usually there is a one WR per session rule.  So Jonathan Edwards only beat the Triple Jump WR once in Gothenburg, even though he did two WRs in the competition.

It wasn’t very clear. I assumed that was the case, but my father said he heard the commentator say otherwise :dunno:

Amusan :NGR going home $200,000 richer :d (assuming it works that way…)

 

Edit: Nevermind, she only gets a meager $100,000 :p

Fighting Q from Grijalva :GUA - do not remember any Guatemalan track runners, lots of race walkers.

He made the 5000m final in Tokyo. He hasn’t been on the international scene long though. I believe he finished his collegiate career last year, where he made some waves in the NCAA.

Media 800m took place this morning. A lot of athletics journalists I follow/read took part. Still trying to find out who won :p

I think this is becoming somewhat of a tradition for Polish athletes. I seem to remember a Polish male thrower doing something similar after Rio 2016. Definitely the kind of tradition I can get behind :hatoff:

Anyone that knows: Why do the announcers say the leader is doing all the work? Aren't they all running at the same pace?

I don’t think the aerodynamic advantage is huge, but there’s definitely less mental/physical ware when following someone. It’s easier to follow than to lead/run alone.

My wild guess is that this from the Go Pro/Teva Mountain Games…

Still sad that this was the last 50km race. I wish we could get rid of the mixed relays and surfing and sport climbing, skateboarding, 3x3 basketball and other ridiculous events that have no business in the Olympics

In fairness, the addition of those sports doesn’t really have much to do with the 50km Race Walk being dropped. It has entirely to due with the fact that there’s no Women’s 50km Race Walk. Plus, the IOC also didn’t like the lack of technological innovation if I remember their report correctly.
