Once more with feeling

Our last visit to the World Championships was the last for Usain Bolt and Mo Farah too.  If you had told us that Mo wouldn’t win and that Bolt would pull up after 10 m we’d have thought that it was going to be a massive disappointment.  Far from it.   The British silver in the women’s 4×100 relay picked us up immediately after Mo’s disappointment, and Bolt’s injury was missed in the excitement and jubilation of a British gold, so we had a fantastic night.  It’s a shame to see the greatest of them all go out so cruelly, though – a great champion and a great character.
