There is a reason why we hype this meet, why, when the dust settles after the men's marathon on Sunday morning (Saturday night in the US), we will immediately start talking about Paris 2024. It is because the Olympics always delivers.

The venue changes, the athletes change (farewell, Nick Willis), the marquee events change (who could have predicted five years ago that the 400 hurdles would be the marquee races of the next Olympics?). But there is always greatness, there is always drama, and there are always stories.

Like the most anonymous Olympic champion of the entire men's program (Italy's Marcell Jacobs) just so happening to win the biggest event of the Games. Like two 19-year-olds, Athing Mu and Keely Hodgkinson, going 1-2 in the Olympic 800 final. Like Rai Benjamin and Dalilah Muhammad running faster -- significantly faster -- than anyone ever had in the 400-meter hurdles, only to lose out on gold because someone else was even better.

And who knows what awaits us on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday? We've got some great finals left -- men's 1500 and 5k, women's 1500 and 10k, both marathons -- and plenty more stories to be told. 

One week down. Three days to go.
