The quality the photos given the artificial light is really quite amazing. I was also surprised that it doesn't appear to be used any fill flash.

Thanks John. Difficult conditions and yes, no flash used. Most other people didn't get any pictures of the finals. It was just too dark. I figured they'll be OK for internet use at least. The real/official photographer left when it got dark, in part to save us from flashes during the runs. Daytime they were doing it, but then they left.
