Athletics: Day Five

Olympics

ByTheMinRio2016

Men's 200m heats coming up shortly. . .

First of ten heats. Britain's Talbot goes in lane 2.

First two are guaranteed qualifiers.

False start!

Pinder of the Bahamas goes WAY too early. Disqualified.

Back to the starting blocks for the remaining runners.

Better start and Edward leads down the home straight and takes it. 20.19 with Danny Talbot finishes second and takes the second qualification spot!

Of course, it remains to be seen whether 20.2 is enough for some of the fastest losers.

Heat 2 of the 200m has Yohan Blake in lane 6.

USA's Ameer Webb in lane 5, too. The two biggest names.
