London 2012 - 7 - The 'big' event

On our session, we were lucky enough to see the Men's 200m semi-finals.

Semi-final #1 was won for Jamaica by Yohan Blake

and there are no surprises for the winner of semi-final #2, here being introduced to the crowd.

The two results set up a tasty final for the following evening.

In addition to the Men's 200m semi, we also saw the Women's 200m final, won by Allyson Felix of the USA, the Women's long jump final, won by Brittney Reese of the USA, the Men's 110m hurdles final, won by Aries Merritt of the USA (it was a good session for the USA!) and the Women's 400m hurdles final won by Natalya Antyukh of ...

Russia :)


  1. YOU GOT TO SEE THE 200M FINAL? I'm so jealous. We saw the 5,000 meter final and that was satisfying. I'm so glad you got to go in person. It's on my bucket list to go to a Summer Olympics and see some of that amazing gymnastics up close and personal.

  4. You got a very lucky draw. Fantastic experience; I am envious.

  5. Perfect day to be there! That was one of the days I enjoyed the most. Not for US wins but because I like the 200M runs and love love any hurdles.

  6. Wow, You really got to see some wonderful events !
    I still can't believe anyone can really run that fast. Amazing !
