Link below for "Live stream of track and field's day 7 morning session, featuring men's discus qualifying; women's heptathlon; women's shot put qualifying; men's 800m round 1; women's 10,000 final; women's 100 prelim"

Not sure I'll get up at 5:30am Pacific time but for you east coasters it is more civilized at 8:30 am. I am hoping the 10K starts at around 7 am pacific or they may be doing it first because of heat. Does anyone know?


37 women in one race

Just sounds like a receipt for disaster in not running two heats. But they have survived the first lap.

The lead pack is running ~1:20 ahead of Molly's PR.

Thus, at about 12:00 she fell off the back of the pack.


This is quite ridiculous.

I wonder if the Ethiopian runner can keep up this pace.


Wow, the lead pack ran the first 5k right at Molly's 5k PR.

(Which, of course, is much faster than sustainable through 10000)


Insane pace *

Gold broke 93 WR, which was 22s ahead of 2nd alltime, by 14s

The silver medalist ran only a second slower than the previous WR, so the third fastest run alltime.

For perspective, 30:17 would have ranked as the 17th fastest women's 10k all time, but today it would've finished 8th. The gold medalist ran 29:17.

Un-fucking-real.


And she wasn't even winded.

Wonder how she did that.


Neither was Molly Huddle when she won the 5000 at OTs.

By her own admission (see the link).

I think that doping is fairly widespread in Track and Field right now, sadly. But I don't like the way that the discussion on this run begins and ends with the African runners at the top. Just looking at their times and their progression, you could speculate that at a minimum all of the top 8 are doping. But there is no evidence for any of it at this point, so any finger pointing is quite unfair.

Just my $0.02 as a runner and a track fan.


London was won in 30:20.7 *

Looks like it starts at 10:10 in Brazil.

So that should be 9:10 ET.


EDIT: Google is telling me 9:10 a.m. Central time.

You can't tell but if I expand my page, it says all times are Central time (I am in the Central time zone).

Also, this chart shows 11:10 local start time.

Google is telling me 10 10 Eastern Time

Interesting.

I hadn't seen one page on the Rio Olympics site that converted time. The one time I try to tell somebody what time an event is and I manage to find a page that does convert the time.
