6:34 pm
almost unheard—of in the world championships to have a sell—out of the stadium of this size for a morning session. that is what it was. it was packed full of british athletes and so much to look forward to. one of the main attractions this morning was katarina johnson—thompson in the heptathlon, her first two events. let's take you through how she did. she finished sixth in rio, she has a coaching change, she moved to france. she went very well in the 100 metre hurdles, just outside her personal best, her second quickest time over the distance, that put her 16th, six in the rankings, she seemed fairly happy with it. this is over seven events. the second event, her strongest of the seven, the high jump, here she is going for 186, her final attempt. she was absolutely distraught. her best effort in her
6:35 pm
career is 198 which would have won gold in itself in the individual event at rio last year, she knew that she had blown it big time, because her weaker events are still to come, she has got the shot putt later on this evening and also be 200 metres, she is not bad at that, but she is going to have to excel in all those events now. she is down in the fifth but a long way behind the leader, the olympic champion nafi thiam from belgium. just after the morning session and after she had done that, i spoke tojessica ennis—hill's former coach about exactly what was going through katarina's mind and what she can do because she is being catch up. we would normally have seen herjump about 192, she has jumped would normally have seen herjump about 192, she hasjumped 180, would normally have seen herjump about 192, she hasjumped180, the difference between that is around about 180 points that she has lost.
6:36 pm
it is awkward because that is her strength but it doesn't mean the accommodation is over, she is very capable of performing to a level that can see a medal. but that was her best event. she goes individually in the highjump her best event. she goes individually in the high jump as well. her weaker events, one individually in the high jump as well. herweaker events, one of individually in the high jump as well. her weaker events, one of them coming up this afternoon. in fairness, the shot putt is not a great event for her but she can through 30 metres, she will sneak back some points. she's very strong in the 200 do very capable long jumper, there are two more strong events to come for her. on balance, she is still in the game. it will be about how decode speaks to her, about how decode speaks to her, about decision making, what they talk about, emotionally pick yourself up. another five events she can try and recover from the disappointment from the high jump. how much more difficult is it going to be to get a medal mouth after that highjump? to be to get a medal mouth after
6:37 pm
that high jump? katarina's score to be to get a medal mouth after that highjump? katarina's score has moved down and she isjust that highjump? katarina's score has moved down and she is just around about, the loss of 180 points. we saw rodriguez move up her potential score to 6500. you see this touring and froing, we have still got the german girl in there, she is very erratic and long jumper. we don't know yet, some of these other girls could have their own it with the event when it goes wrong. therefore, cat is back in it. quite a way to 90, cat is back in it. quite a way to go, there is a dm half of this condition left. —— day and a half. tony saying that katarina johnson—thompson is still in the game, we are still about 20 minutes away from the first event here, she will be making her way to the shot putt circle in the next 20 minutes 01’ so. putt circle in the next 20 minutes or so. that enormous roar, that is joel pavey on the podium there, receiving the bronze medal she
6:38 pm
should have won ten years ago at the world championships. we saw another person pick up three medals, a reallocation, as they right the wrongs of various doping crimes down the years at world championships. joel pavey was cheated out of a bronze ten yea rs joel pavey was cheated out of a bronze ten years on, we were talking to her about this last night in our hotel and she has got all her family here, she's really excited. she certainly has enjoyed it and hopefully later we will get a chance to speak to her with her bronze medal as well. what medal will usain bolt walk away with? in the next a0 minutes he goes in the semifinals of the 100 metres, his final event individually on the track after so many global titles and relays and suchlike. we saw a first glance of them in the heat
6:39 pm
yesterday, not looking good at all, not looking good all season, he only broke ten seconds for the first time in the monaco two weeks ago. he was so in the monaco two weeks ago. he was so slow out of the blocks, he blamed them, he won the heat but it was a really slow time and he shook his head and said he has really got to improve on that. he goes in the last heat, let's show you who is also in this heat, kristian coleman, the young american. the americans have piled all the resources behind him. they feel the college at student is going to be the next big thing, there he is on the outside lane, steaming through. he goes in that same heat as usain bolt at 20 past seven. last night after that heat i got a chance to speak to the young american. lam i am ready to go. everyone is
