Su Bingtian is the only Asian to have broken 10sec before this race.  His PB was 9.97 if I am not wrong,  and he holds the current Asian games record. He is station in USA.  

Not surprise with his 9.83,  OR have been falling since the start of the track events,  some as early as semis.  More OR expected to fall this year...  [laugh][laugh][laugh]

How is his upper muscle built? Those upper body muscle like raisin bun bursting. Like those top european/american short distance runner.

Su BT not very tall,  I think only about 1.7m,  consider short,  but he is big for his height...  [laugh][laugh][laugh]

He could have gotten a bronze even a silver if he could clock his semi's timing...but his take off was second slowest...i tink he scared to be the second one out by red card...

戴 lost. Maybe the unseeded win for mens double has put a lot of pressure on her.

But a very very good fight. it was a nail-biting finish.

I thought Chen YF looked very tired going into the 3rd set but kudos to her,  she managed to return almost anything thrown at her.

Belarus runner seek asylum with Austria

TOKYO -- A Belarus track sprinter alleged her Olympic team tried to remove her from Japan in a dispute that led to a standoff Sunday evening at Tokyo’s main airport.

An activist group supporting Krystsina Tsimanouskaya said she believed her life was in danger in Belarus and would seek asylum with the Austrian embassy in Tokyo.

Tsimanouskaya said in a filmed message distributed on social media she was pressured by Belarus team officials and asked the International Olympic Committee for help.

“I was put under pressure and they are trying to forcibly take me out of the country without my consent,” the 24-year-old runner said.

Tsimanouskaya, who is due to run in the Olympic 200-meter heats Monday, criticized Belarus team officials on her Instagram account. She said she’d been put in the 4x400 relay despite never racing the event.

The Belarusian Sport Solidarity Foundation said government supporters targeted the athlete, and Tsimanouskaya contacted the group for help to avoid what she feared was a forced deportation to Minsk.

“The campaign was quite serious and that was a clear signal that her life would be in danger in Belarus,” Alexander Opeikin, a spokesman for the BSSF, told The Associated Press in an interview.

Tsimanouskaya summoned Japanese police at Haneda Airport and did not board a flight departing for Istanbul. Foreign ministry officials arrived later at the airport, Opeikin said.

In a statement released by the BSSF, Tsimanouskaya said she was in a police station early Monday morning.

"I explained the situation to a police officer of how I was taken from the Olympic Village," she said. "Now I am in a secure situation and am figuring out the question of where I will spend the night.

The IOC, which has been in dispute with the Belarus National Olympic Committee ahead of the Tokyo Games, said it had intervened.

“The IOC … is looking into the situation and has asked the NOC for clarification,” the Olympics said in a statement.

The Belarus National Olympic Committee has been led for more than 25 years by authoritarian state president Alexander Lukashenko and his son, Viktor.

Both Lukashenkos are banned from the Tokyo Olympics by the IOC which investigated complaints from athletes that they faced reprisals and intimidation in fallout from protests since last August after the country's disputed presidential election.

A spokeswoman for the Belarus Olympic team did not respond to a request for comment.

Tsimanouskaya was taken to a safe place and would ask for asylum from the Austrian embassy, Opeikin said.

Tsimanouskaya already competed for Belarus on the first day of track events Friday at the National Stadium in Tokyo. She placed fourth in her first-round heat in the 100 meters, timing 11.47 seconds, and did not advance.

戴資穎 did very well in the 2nd game to come from behind to equal the score. She did try her best but she also made more errors. She seems to be carrying a slight knock in her knees based on her posting? She also hinted this might be her last Olympics.

The 酸民 in TW are also quite brutal. Some said she is a 巡迴賽天后.
