5 metres! this girl is unbelievable

Wow, was priviledged yesterday to see the first woman to soar over 5 metres in the Pole Vault at the London Grand Prix! Yelena Isinbayeva - what a dame!

Despite the uncertainty of the bomb threats in the city, and amidst the fears, I was glad i finally did go to Crystal Palace. Disappointed though that injury prevented world's fastest man ASAFA POWELL from completing his duel with Olympic champion JUSTIN GATLIN in the 100 metres, nevertheless the drama was worth it.

Kenenisa Bekele won the 5,000 metres as usual, but was chased all the way home by Austalian Craig Mottram.

Poor Wallace Spearmon, sad to miss out of Helsinki after his excertions at the NCAA, showed his full recovery with a stunning 19.89 seconds win in the 200 metres.
