A silver medal was the best that Dina Asher-Smith could have done there. Well done. smile.gif

Well this is probably the lowest attendance ever for a 100m final. Absolute joke to give Doha the World Athletics Championship.

A gold medal for Dina Asher-Smith in the 200m. She becomes the seventh British woman to win a gold medal at the World Championships since it started in 1983. Many of the fancied runners pulled out with injuries so we will never know if she would have beaten them all but you can only race against who turns up so this shouldn't detract from what she's achieved.

I'm glad someone else in interested in this wink.gif

That was some performance from Asher-Smith to win with a National Record. She joins:

Fatima Whitbread
Liz McClogan
Sally Gunnell
Paula Radcliffe
Christine Ohuruogu

As a British female gold medallist at the World Athletics Championship.

And now there are eight as Katarina Johnson-Thompson wins the heptathlon and breaks the British record as well. It's great to see her win the gold medal after so many previous disappointments. Great Britain now fourth in the medal table.

Sheer brilliance from Katarina Johnson-Thompson to win gold. World Indoor and Outdoor Champion all in the same year. She's had far too many disappointments but I'm glad she won.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson doesn't have the killer instinct to win a medal at a Worlds and Olympics. At a Commonwealth Games possibly. But she again failed.


I'm very glad I have been proved wrong with that statement I made two years ago.

It is packed so far. I think USA could be disqualified following that run in the relay.
