Chambers looked really good today, I'm happy for him. Everyone's been criticising him in the media so much, things like 'he's been given a lifeline like no other athlete could dream of and he's letting us down, wasting it all and getting beat by teenagers', mindless comments like that. Would be really happy for him if he gets to the final. He's a guy who made some big mistakes many years ago and now wants redemption. He's straight talking and seems more mature than a few years ago. You can see that he's determined, he's 35 and should be all means be well over the hill, but he ran one of his fastest times ever today, and that too after easing up in the later stages. With Blake, Bolt, Powell, Gatlin, Gay, and Bailey pretty much nailed on for the final, he's got a decent chance of getting through in the other spots (I was told he was the fourth fastest qualifier, only Bailey, Gay/Gatlin, and Blake were quicker), and he seems capable of a sub-10 run.

Looking forward to seeing Mo Farah later
Can't wait for Mo. When I was running long distance (stopped now unfortunately ) I always dreamt of being the Brit who finally challenged the top dogs in the long distance races, so it's great to see we've got someone doing that, at our home games as well
