Useless information -
The TV guide is showing Eurosport 1: Hall of Fame Usain Bolt 16:00-17:00 and Eurosport 2: Live Archery World Championships 15:55 - 18:05

Looking at the hour records I see that if she does beat the current record of 48.007 she stands a chance of also beating Jeannie Longo's 1996 record of 48.159. Meaning we could have a single, unified, hour record.

Harder to do with the men's record because Boardman's 1996 distance is a full kilometre beyond the record.

Half an hour of "Can she do it?", "Will she do it?" "Should she even be trying to do it?", followed by an hour of riding, followed by half an hour of "Yes, of course she could do it!", "Yes, she did do it!" "Good job she was brave enough to go for it!" or alternatively "No, she couldn't do it!", "No, she did not do it!" "FAIL - I bet she won't try that again!" :laugh:

Did she just beat the countdown clock? It looked like she set off about half a second early!

(Obviously, not a huge time saving if she did, but it would be awful to have a record disallowed on a technicality...)
