Rooney fell, apparently in the same place as Bingham. UKA gives I think a sentence to the two incidents.

Getting tripped is obviously not UK fault but it does remind me that we have nothing like Penn Relays in UK or a collegiate system. Our athletes run relays probably 2 times a year !!

The proverbial excuses about British luck.... how boring...twice tripped was it?... the number of times our athletes run in relays is hardly the point, when you note the teams that managed to stay on their feet this w/e .
You are not supposed to place yourself such that you get tripped. The history of our relay performances in worthy events has mostly been rather pathetic at every level in the last few years, and so called hardcore fans should know better than the excuse making that is and will be evident in our AW Forum and the track and field press. At least HAA managed to avoid messing up the Americans this time :)

I note that Brit Athletics on Twitter talks of a "strong performance" by our team at the relays.
What would they have said if we had actually won something and also not DNFd twice this w/e.
However, a good performance by our 4x400m women. :D

Are you drunk ??

I wasn't making excuses at all, i didn't mention luck, in fact the opposite. People can't be blamed for being tripped but the the set up can be criticised for the lack of preparation that we've had for years.

American's who run relays week in week out all through school and college are phenomenal in 4x4 relays, especially the women who ALWAYS run above themselves with a baton in their hand. I believe it has something to do with their experience and team spirit that is engendered through the school and college careers

1 Ethiopia
9:16.34 Aisinet Abiyot (2:53.5), Bereket Desta (46.0), Mohammed Aman (1:44.0), Aman Wote (3:52.8)

2 Kenya
9:17.03 Anthony Chemut (2:51.6), Kennedy KipKosgei Chepsiror (47.1), Timothy Kitum (1:45.4), Caleb Ndiku (3:52.9)

3 USA Red
9:18.21 Andrew Wheating (2:52.2), Quentin Summers (44.8), Duane Solomon (1:45.0), David Torrence (3:56.2)

4 USA Blue
9:19.33 Matthew Centrowitz (2:53.4), Kind Butler (45.5), Charles Jock (1:45.7), Bernard Lagat (3:54.8)

I'd say 2:52.2 is a bit of good news.

The Villanova DMR with an Australian running the first and anchor legs ran faster than the Australian team in this race.

Re the Universal re-play currently on the front page
Was that really Ethiopia that got tangled up when the UK team went down?

No. It was a Moroccan who had a 51 split. It would be impossible to have a 46 split with a fall like that.

Thanks TN1965 didn't think my sieve for a brain had gotten that far out of kilter.

Yeah I though that was cleared up on race day- when I saw the caption I said that can not be correct.
This live to tape format saves a few $ in production costs but now the myth gets legs.
" but it must be right it's in the computer!!"
"they said so on TV"
"I found it on the internet"
" that would have been a 41.point leg- imagine what he could run if he moved up to the 800m"
The caption could be edited but that would squash the story-rather generate the views/ internet hits than report the egg on face moment
the casual viewer does not care so why pander to those picky picky fan boys---
Hey Breaking news>>>
Here is a pay for view interview with Alan Webb on his plans to assault the World Record in the Marathon...
