ATHLETICS 101: DIPPING
It's a question that armchair fans frequently ask: why don't athletes dip at the line, regardless of their situation in a race? Amantle Montsho might well be posing the same question to herself after Christine Ohuruogu secured her status as one of Great Britain's greatest all-time athletes with a sensational comeback to win the 400m at the World Championships in Moscow. At the line Montsho didn't dip; Ohuruogu did and, as is so often the case on the track, that proved to be the difference between gold and silver.

Yelena Isinbayeva is arguably the greatest athletes to ever grace a pole-vaulting arena, but the Russian's glittering career could be nearing an end. The Russian has hinted these World Championships in Moscow might be her last major international competition, so catch her while you can. She contests the women's final at the Luzhniki Stadium this evening. There's plenty of other to look forward to on day four too.
Another former world leader in his field, Roger Federer, hits the courts in Cincinnati tonight looking to arrest a run of poor results that have amounted to his worst summer in over a decade.
