    Bronze for Rutherford.


    I've tried to work out the numbers. Ennis-Hill is about 140 points down on Thiam.

    Thiam's PB in the 800m is 749 points.
    Ennis-Hill's season best in 2016 is 950 (I think).


    EDIT: Nah, actually this is bollocks. Thiam's PB is about 850.

    Thiam seems to be improving on every PB though. Old (30) Jess can't do that

    Oh god

    Bookies give Ennis only about a 30% chance.

    Ennis has popped out a baby so good on her for even being in contention! Thiam won't be so fucking smug in Tokyo if her man puts a bun in her oven after all the gold celebrations

    I think, all things considered, that was still a ridiculously good showing for Farah/Ennis/Rutherford. This is turning out to be another STELLAR Olympics for us.

    And there was a silver for the men in the 4x100m freestyle event. The women finished seventh.

    Thrilled for Mo though, even after he was tripped up midway.

    30 medals in total now for GB, one fewer than this time in London.

    How many times - it was the medley relay NOT freestyle
