A few observations from Gothenburg

After watching the morning's action from day 2 of the Europeans one of the best performances came from British women's 400m and 800m runners (those who passed their drugs tests) all qualified for the semis.

The best performance from Marilyn Okoro (400m) who helpfully the BBC pointed out is a singer with a jazz band "Felonius Monks" knocked half a second off her personal best and this was only her third 400m since she is normally an 800m runner. What made it more impressive was that she thought she was in the 3rd heat and had to rush to the start line for the first race that she was supposed to be in.

I don't see why the TV show athletes in slow motion when the most impressive thing about this sport is their speed. Also look out for the BBC's new toy – the stro–motion picture which superimposes an athlete in various parts of their event. Very nice!
