... in the world? We filmed some mixed zone 'ambience' shots after the 100m semis and then I was free to watch. Adams of course won the shot, though the joy on the face of the German, Schwanitz, who threw a pb in the final round to take silver was something to see. The 400m was the race of the championships so far. Hastings inside her went off fast, with a reaction time of .163 as against .247, and passed Ohuruogu, but the latter always paces her races well and by 200m she was ...

A couple of times Mo moved nearer the front, seeing or feeling a change in pace, but again settled back before taking the lead a couple of times and immediately slowing it slightly. He hit the front with intent with 2k to go, and this time whenever anyone drew level he went with them, forcing them to run wider. 1200 to go, and really it's playing to his last lap strengths, though the other US ...

... we left just before midnight. The bunks are just big enough for a person. The train is very smooth and quiet, much more so than the planes I was on coming over from NZ. I'm a little sad to be leaving Moscow. I wouldn't want to live there, but I got to know my way around the metro, and I really enjoyed interacting with the locals; ordering food and tickets, asking directions, even giving directions and help to a few people who ...
