Guten Morgen from Berlin! It is about 4.30 am in the Midwest, and 2.30 am on the West Coast as I write this first update. I am sitting in seat 94/2, in the Media Tribune, above the finish line. A wonderful wind is in the stadium this high up, as sun and warmth have graced the 1936 Berlin Olympic Stadium. About 25,000 fans grace the stadium this morning while the men's shot, women's steeplechase, women's 100m hurdles are conducted.
