World Champs Day Three and Long Tall Sally visit!

On Friday I was lucky enough to be invited into the IAAF VIP box to watch the men's high jump qualifying competition with former high jumper Brendan Reilley and other celebrity guests. We had a great view from up at the top by the 100m start line and did our best to follow the frenetic action on the infield below. Before the competition even started I was amused to see Gianmarco (Gimbo) Tamberi, the Italian jumper, working the crowd and getting them on his side even as he walked out onto the track from the tunnel!
