Desmond Lynam introduces what should prove to be an epic 70 minutes of athletics. Colin
Jackson and his great friend and rival Tony Jarrett go for gold in the 110m hurdles final, and the other track finals are the men's
200m and the women's 100m hurdles. Just last month Jackson broke his own
European and Commonwealth 110m hurdles record at
Sestriere in Italy, winning in
12.97 seconds. This clipped more than half a second off his previous personal best, achieved in Cologne a year ago, and while he remains half a second outside
Roger Kingdom 's four-year-old world record, Jackson must now feel that this is coming within his reach. Also, the men's long jump reaches its climax, featuring Mike Powell of the United States, who two years ago broke Bob Beamon 's world record, set 23 years before at altitude during the Mexico
Olympics. With commentary by David Coleman ,
Stuart Storey , Paul Dickenson and Brendan Foster.
