You have to feel sorry for the 400 meters guys at the Golden Gala.
The Men’s 400 meters was a non Samsung Diamond League event and was scheduled immediately after the Men’s 100 meters (8 minutes to be exact). The athletes were probably in the control room and maybe had access to a TV monitor to watch the race. But if they did, then that’s losing focus on your own race, which is bad.
As expected, there was a slight delay in the start of the 400m as Usain Bolt was doing a full victory lap. I was glad to see no one left the stadium after the main event and you have to love European track for this. In North America, the seats would have been empty.
