      Tried to find a thread so if there is one feel free to move mods
      Just watched Ennis hill win for GB looked at her and thought is there a better role model for any kids going into sport in britain today , ithink her and Mo are the epitome of true greatness in sport and as brits we should be so proud of them .

      Agreed, although gotta feel sorry for the scouser KJT, after recovering from injury and a hellish high jump to muck up like that in her best event (did 3 foul long jumps, the final one by absolute millimeters), poor girl was in tears after her stroll around the 800m.

      I think she'll go on to break the world record as long as she gets an injury free period, precocious talent.

      Congrats to Ennis-Hill though, fantastic performance, true professional and absolutely love Mo.

      Agree with that Luke KJT Has time on her side and hopefully she will get a medal in the long jump , hope they're both fit for Rio will be a great competition with them two on top of their game .

      Honestly think Ennis-Hill getting gold is right up there with the best British sporting achievements in recent time. Hardly competed since 2012, gave birth 13 months ago, didn't train until November and wasn't even sure she'd compete in Beijing until a month ago. Absolutely incredible.

      KJT's chance will come in the future, the occasion just got to her. She'll be better for it at Rio.

      Such a shame we have to watch Justin f**king Gatlin get gold in the 100m shortly, that tw*t shouldn't be anywhere near the sport.

      Been following this quote closely and been impressed! Also a keen reminder of what a great stadium the Birds Nest is and what a great Olympics Beijing held that year!) Bolt going in the 200m final in about an hour I think.

      And aren't we blessed to live in an era of great British athletes. How brilliant has it been to see Mo, Jess Ennis Hill and Greg Rutherford.

      Shout out to Christine Ohorogou who goes in the 400m final later on as well. BBC reminding us that she's going for her third world title. What a great runner.

      And great hope for the future and present as well. 19 year old Dina Asher Smith just beat Veronica Campbell Brown in her 200m semi final!

      I've been watching athletics since the late days of Colin Jackson and Jonathan Edwards. I've never been more excited about a group of athletes going into every major competition than with this one. There are men and women competing in a wide range of events where we once rarely ever featured and they're keeping up with the best in the world which is even better to see.

      Brilliant isn't it! And just one year out from the Rio Olympics, there's much to look forward to.

      Got to say - we live in an age of great British sporting talent. Farah, Ennis Hill, Rutherford, Andy Murray, Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome, Lewis Hamilton...the list is endless.

      It's a shame that we didn't get to see Lawrence Okoye develop into a top athlete, instead he opted to go try out for the 49ers. KJT is going to be a threat for medals in the near future too, she was so unfortunate in the long jump part of the heptathlon.

      Asher-Smith sets a new British record in the 200m and finished 5th in the final so well done to her. Porter looks to be getting a silver in the women's long jump too whilst also setting a new British record.

      I've never seen somebody so happy to come 5th in a race as Asher-Smith, it's as though she's just won the gold. She's a breathe of fresh air! Things like British records are finally put into perspective and celebrated for being the achievement that it is.

      Great effort from both, can't do much more than break the national record!

      Asher-Smith has a really bright future although she's got a formidable opponent in Dafne Schippers. I remember reading somewhere that she moved solely to sprinting from the heptathlon only a few months ago and now she's come away with one gold and one silver.

      Dafne Schippers , first ever female Dutch world champion in athletics! She's a beast, still just 23 years old.

      Mo Farah has done it again!!! 5000m gold and 5 world titles!

      It's one of the great sights in sport seeing how Mo Farah controls a race like that and then absolutely kills it on the last straight.

      This guy is Britain's greatest sportsman today. Make no doubt about it. What a hero.

      Schippers has always been better at sprinting than the whole heptathlon event so it made sense for her to switch to the one event and focus all her time onto it. It obviously worked as I don't think she would have won a medal in the heptathlon.

      This guy is Britain's greatest sportsman today. Make no doubt about it. What a hero.

      Don't tell the likes of Shearer, Lineker and the United fan base that, they'll swear it's Rooney :D

      wel well well it appears our Russian frienda are about to be kicked out of international athletics for doping and fraud. Seems they still think this is the 1980's.
