The full schedule for tonight also includes the first round of the men's 110m hurdles and the women's 400m hurdles.

The discuss ladies are due to get underway about now, Jade Lally throws(?) for Team GB. It's the qualification round where a throw of 62m will get you into the final, or failing that the 12 longest throws of the night.

Time for heat 1 of the men's 110m hurdles.

Omar McLeod in this heat has 5 of the 10 fastest times this years

And sure enough McLeod skates it, through the puddles.

It is chucking it down......
