Day #2 Madness from spikesmag

The IAAF Spikes Magazine's delightfully demented crew has outdone itself with its Day #2 report. Even Polonius - the only man in Great Britain not to have been DQed on Friday - gets a nod. Then ITO (International Technical Official) Hamlet shows up and delivers the ultimate DQ.

Huh? Exactly. This is as close to a must-read as you'll find this year.

And it's only March.

2nd.

Must note that the excitement in Seattle is palpable as Brooks Beast Drew Windle qualified for the men's 800m final on Saturday with a personal best 1:45.52. He has drawn lane 3 with favorite Adam Kzsczot (Pol) to his inside in Lane 1 - a perfect setup for a medal-winning performance.

Will Windle become the 2nd Beast to bring home a World Championships 800m medal?
Nick Symmonds was the first (outdoors) in Moscow in 2013 when he won silver.

It looks good for Windle from here.
