the final. a couple of events up in the air actually because of the rain. the men's hammer warming up and the steeplechase, we have not yet heard if that will go ahead. because the hurdles would get very wet indeed. but this is the timetable as it stands this evening on the sixth day. no morning session, wejust had on the sixth day. no morning session, we just had the early sessions and we can see if the women's 3000 metres steeplechase will go ahead. i do not think that it will because the jumps have not been put out. that was due at five past seven but it does not look as if that will go ahead. then the women's long jump qualification, the men's hammer throw, the men's 5000 metres, two heats of that. mo farah must finish in the top five. then the women's shot put final, expected to be an american affair. the men's hammer qualifying second group. and the men's 200 semifinals with issac ma kwa la the men's 200 semifinals with issac makwala returning. the men's 400 metres hurdles final, three gold
