The stadium was packed with people; enthusiastic supporters eager to see the events on offer.
First off were the decathletes, competing in the high jump.
Decathlon leader Ashton Eaton cleared 2.05m, retaining his first place position, but, as the competition progressed, we got behind the Cuban Leonel Suarez, cheering him on to the completion of the event. The bar eventually reached 2.11m and his clearance proved enough for Suarez to win the event.
The women's 1500m semi-finals proved tricky to photograph. If only they would stand still! Laura Weightman of GBR qualified for the final, in which she came 11th in 4mins 16.6secs.
The eventual winner of the event was Asli Cakir Alptekin of Turkey.
