A Cold Evening in London

Events that like warmth are left in search of it tonight.

It's 59F/15C in London Olympic Stadium.

Much anticipated finals will be held in the women's javelin, men's steeplechase, men's 800m, men's pole vault, and men's 400m.

There is much buzz about a possible win by Evan Jager (US) in the steeplechase, and even more about the possibility of a world record by Wayde van Niekerk (RSA) in the men's 400m.

Most unfortunately, the single person most likely to push van Niekerk was Botswana's Isaac Makwala. It is widely being reported that he was turned away at the gate tonight. A norovirus went through his hotel, and he is now only 24 hours into the 48 hour quarantine requirement.

The steeple, 800m, and 400m will take place within a sparkling 40 minutes at the end of tonight's program.

A great finish is guaranteed.
