As coach I remember sending Richard Mountstephens about 2pm in very hot conditions, as the very last runner in the long. And they mucked up the start draw, so he was initially not anywhere near last.
I remember that start draw well - the first attempt was alphabetical by name and the second attempt was alphabetical by country, at which point Belinda Allison must have thought she was doomed to start first.
The long day was hot (30ish), but not on the scale of the relay.
I thought that Berlin's hottest day on record was when Geoff & I were there in July 2015; has that since been surpassed?
4 July 2015 (37.9) is the current record for the main long-term site (there are also sites at the three airports/former airports with slightly different numbers). Not sure yet if it was broken yesterday (probably not), but there is at least a 50% chance it will be on Sunday.
We weren't quite in Poland yesterday but weren't far off, in the Tatra mountains on the Slovakian side. It was pleasantly warm but not unbearably so.
But you had altitude tRicky! Bound to be cooler.
Having attitude is always cooler.
