In a fantastic final day to the World Championships, jumps, middle distance races, sizzling sprints and really close 4 x 400m relays reminded this writer what our sport is all about! A great facility, (3 meter base so we all could see the track better), great Polish crowds, and a well presented global meet showed a healthy indoor sport.
While the wired internet worked well, after the first couple of hours, I humbly request that if the IAAF Media group wants more media and more coverage for our sport, excellent wifi, and free wifi should be de rigeur for all IAAF events.

Social media was king again at these championships! I followed not only my US stalwarts, but friends across the world in several languages. IAAF apps and various ways to communicate the excitement of the sport is succeeding--this is a wise investment!
I have just posted a quick synopsis of all events on Day Three, with results I compiled, so I beg your indulgence on the misnomers.
Watch for some event by event coverage later in the evening! We are taking a break tonight and touring Gdansk tomorrow.
