That little push on Kuma was a tiny bit naughty. I think Rupp boxed him in unexpectedly and so he had to wait for Rupp to move and then found the other guy in the way and that's where the little push happened.

I love how the BBC commentators blame the other guy for blocking Mo.
Well Paula seemed very sure it was deliberate.

Yeah Kuma was clearly a push.

Perhaps they are too far away from the finish line to see.

Paula just said Kuma did a deliberate blocking manoeuvre so 50/50.

50 / 50 my arse. He was running on the outside of Mo, so Mo was blocked iin. Mo had no right to push his way out.

Meanwhile, over on Eurosport - the sports channel that actually covers sport and not blethering - both Shanna Proctor and Blessing Okugbare have jumped qualifying distances for the women's Long Jump final.

Exactly. He should have waited until there was an opportunity to move out.

Shara Proctor is looking good. That 6.85 that was 26 cm behind the board was effectively a 7.10 jump.

Well done Mo on another class performance.

Poor effort from Gabby Logan who criticised the number of British supporters and well done to Denise Lewis who defended them.

Great jump. It looked even longer.

No she didn't, she was having a go at the lack of people there generally, not specifically the Brits.

Well if the Ethiopians don't protest then that would suggest they thought it wasn't too out of order. But he needs to be careful in the 5000m.

I'm not as bad as I was during his Olympics races. During the final lap of the second one I was on my knees on the floor in front of the TV screaming "come on Mo" repeatedly. I did however end up with shorter nails tonight.

She's Anguillan, but they don't have their own Olympic committee, which means they're eligible for Team GB.

Are blue tracks made of the same stuff as burgundy ones?
