    I'm just chucking in a load, without really checking if they're blurred/need sharpening etc.

    I think that's the practice track below, which is good to see.

    They're excellent Minnie. Thanks for sharing and improving the thread greatly. I knew you would have some excellent, high quality photos. I will post some but will probably be more of the park as the athletes in my pictures are likely to be a bit small. :) :cool:

    Doesn't matter if they're small, stick them up!

    I'm a bit disappointed in the lack of pictures here :(:D

    She was with us... my friend had her. We had lunch in Umai - the Japan Centre concession in Westfield and they were on the table next to us.

    Wow! You got good seats! :eek: I'm guessing something like Blocks 114-117 or similar? Mid teens row?


    She said she was near to tears after that

    ah right. Never went into Westfield. Saw loads of athletes coming out of it though when we were on shuttle bus from Stratford Station

    They were great! block 107... not sure what number but we were close to the front. But not so close we couldn't see the other side of the stadium. Brilliant!

    ah, only 10 blocks out :D

    and much closer than my row 25 so I expect more pictures :D

    He was probably wondering if he was at the right races :D

    Why didn't they replace the rings with the Agitos anyway? :hmm:

    eta: Oh, just noticed, the rings and the Agitos are on the track

    Once again, fantastic pictures Minnie. I thought that the Aquatic centre was quite beautiful inside. Will be interested to see what the public version will look like in the end. :)
