Start of comp at Berlin Golden League

All set up here with wireless LAN in the press area. All well organised. Got a good lunch.. A strange schnitzel was in the food pack though. Cold.. no deep frying this sucker like at the Labour Club.
Three Australians competing today. Roff in the 1500m, Steffenson in the 400m and Lapierre who is a great chance to win the long jump.

Things to remember for next meet…

Nearly 64,000 attended the meet

  • European adaptor
  • Connector cords for the iPhone/Camera
  • Extra bag to stash the free food!

Franke Dietsch, Danny Ecker and other German stars cruising around the stadium in Mercs to cheering and clapping from German fans..

Very efficient results service.. 5th in Heat 4 50m Pupils race was Samir Al-Mekhlafi. Results kids running around giving the international journos all results. Very funny.

Isi’s Li Ning gear looks like the stuff Sunyang sent me back from China… Paul I’m putting those shirts back on ebay – they will be huge.
