Visited the event track today – it’s a typical municipal athletics stadium like I’m used to running on.  All the teams had an open training session, there are some very strong teams from South America.

All the teams’ officials have a briefing this evening in readiness for the start of events tomorrow.  The opening ceremony will take place tomorrow morning and I have my first event in the afternoon the 100m (heats and final).  Competition will run from 4.00pm until 8.00pm tomorrow afternoon and evening (10.00pm – 2.00am UK time).
