Ennis still first. Javelin throw next. Nail that and it's hers.

Exactly my point. If she nails it, it's her's.

Ennis first throw 46,61. That should seal it.

46.61 is a good start. If she can hit a 50.00 that'd be that I reckon.

As long as she finishes the 800m it's hers really.

Ennis could do the 800 backwards and win at this rate. Good for her.

I really hope this inspires other GB Athletes to do well in the Athletics. Dai Greene, Mo Farrah, Christine Onoroughou all have chances of medalling.

Hope that we can get something in the Long Jump. We had the fourth furthest but only behind by 1cm.

Ennis time is getting near.

Sanya Richards-Ross looks like a sure bet for gold in the women's 400 m.

Tomlinson looking as if he could do something in the long jump, for a change. Greene was very lucky to get through, hopefully it serves as a wake-up call for him.

Perkovic wins women's discuss. Congrats, she did what Blanka was unable to do.

What a terrific result for her, her 2nd best throw would be enough for gold. She nearly died during an operation in 2008.

EDIT:

I'm so glad she was the 1st person from Croatia to win gold in athletics and not Vlašić.
