    This has kind of crept up on me.

    The inaugural combined European Championships. Swimming, rowing, cycling, athletics, gymnastics, triathlon.

    Fantastic world record for Adam Peaty in the 100m breaststroke!

    If you're watching the men's elimination track race which has just been paused to repair the track, you've just seen my mechanic pal with his brush and shovel walk across in close-up.

    Is this a new tournament? Not heard of it before. Unusual that some is in Glasgow and some in Berlin.

    E2A just spotted the word inaugural in the OP. Doh!

    Not a bad idea really - lumping together sports that have their European championships on this schedule, splitting it across a couple of cities. There's been a couple of events I haven't seen before too - mixed relays in the swimming, which have been a lot of fun to watch!

    Dina was imperious. Finally showing what a straightforward buildup to a champs can do.

    Congrats to Thomas Barr, the first Irishman to win a sprint medal.

    KJT Looking good in the Heptathlon.

    Great Long Jump from Thiem. KJT really needed to make another 100 points on her to have a good chance of the win, but only managed 20 or 30. She'll have to have one hell of a javelin throw (where Thiem generally has a 300+ point advantage over her) to have a hope now.

    She threw a PB of 42.16m, so not too bad

    Unfortunately, Thiem almost did a PB as well, so KJT will need to beat her by 15 seconds in the 800 to win it.

    Still a great performance, mind.

    Missed the swim at the start of the triathlon when I realised I had Last of the Summer Fucking Wine on :facepalm: Brownlee (Ali) on course for gold :cool:

    Gutted for KJT. She was so close to winning with that 800m. PB though :cool:

    Bad luck, Ali, but holy shit, Alarza, what a show! Brownlee certainly ain't retiring from triathlon this side of Tokyo 2020.

    As for Katarina Johnson-Thompson, have the BBC presenters/commentators all had some kind of bet as to who can say her full name as many times as possible inside sixty seconds?

    The men's gymnastics team final on now - well, it's taking part as the BBC dick about with channel changes as per usual :mad:

    Excellent start from the Brits on floor, and an early error from the Russians :thumbs:

    Excellent vaulting, but we've seen some screwy judging this afternoon :mad:

    Not our day on highbar. Russians just have to play it safe now for the gold :(

    Well impressed by the two Polish women who ran in the individual 400m final, and then did the relay 90mins later. Meetings don't usually schedule the individual and relays on the same day, do they?

    S☼I You in a bad mood Harry?

    No, it was silly. I think maybe they've crammed a meet into a much shorter period of time

    I'm just wondering at what point I break it to Mrs SI that unfortunately I'm going to have to go and marry Dina Asher-Smith pretty imminently.

    Oh lordy that women's 5k was more eventful than most. Salpeter of Israel celebrates a silver medal one lap too early. Yikes, poor lass.

    I just wanted someone to go to her when she was sobbing by the clock after she finished.

    Oh god, the 100m relay. I always get so nervous before the shorter relay
