Basically she did. I think the lad from Tipton put a bit of a surge in as we approached 'that' right turn, but when he lulled at the corner Ms Steel just kept the hammer down. Never saw her again; very impressive.

Carlos - I take it you were No 18 in the Birchfield vest?

Yes that's right. My Eritrean friend was impressed by Gemma S too, he said she runs like an African.

lol. Running style or just the way she pushed on?

Watching the TV coverage, Gemma was constantly looking at her watch which I found odd. Even in the last 800m, she must have looked at it about 5 times! At that point surely it is just a distraction from running as fast as you can? That said, it was evident that Gemma was working hard and looked very focused in person and on TV.

Got something to say?
