The 2011 World Athletics Championships is happening right here in Daegu, and living in Siji just ten minutes walk from the cool 'World Cup Stadium,' I naturally wanted to grab some tickets and get a slice of the action. Today I witnessed some impressive performances...Isinbayeva in the women's Pole Vault (& lots of skimpy shorts), some speedy men's110m hurdles led by Dayron Robles, a few slightly uninspiring shot putters, and some plucky displays by the well supported Korean athletes. But by far the highlight of the morning was witnessing the amazing Oscar Pistorius...The Blade Runner.
