I will try to watch the World Championships. It's a shame that the Olympics are not being held this year as it would have been a perfect time for it to take place seeing as there's not much else happening this summer.

That was an enjoyable Anniverary Games with Felix, Pearson (even though she didn't win) and O'hare probably the stand-outs for me. Not expecting much from London in terms of British success but I am expecting a high-quality championships.
