    The hurdles heats were interesting…the medals could go to Kendra Harrison, Danielle williams, and Sally Pearson, if there are no mishaps.

    Another bit of common sense…prevention is better than cure.

    This incident has embarrassed Britain. More needs to be done to tackle one of our dirty secrets…that our hotels have poor standards of hygiene. Then, we wouldn’t need to have a quarantine….

    Not one guy under 20 seconds….

    The men’s 200m final was disappointing, and seems to be suffering from a post-Usain Bolt hangover. It was won by Turkey’s Ramil Guliyev in a slow time of 20.09, ahead of favourite Wayde van Niekerk of South africa and Trinidadian Jereem Richards, both of whom clocked 20.11.

    This is a poor event that’s up for…[Read more]

    Well, he endeared himself to the crowd, which was very loud in cheering him on…there’s a sense that he got a raw deal from the authorities who mismanaged the situation.

    I think he was trying to prove a point to the IAAF with those push-ups….

    NoroVirus is transmitted in an environment where poor hygiene is practised. These British hotels have very poor hygiene…one of Britain’s dirty secrets.

    These hotels tend to contract their cleaning out to cleaning companies. a relative of mine worked for one of these companies, and because she came from Jamaica, she would scrub and clean…[Read more]

    So they should have shut up about zika too, then – that’s my point…what an over-inflated scare that was!

    Did anyone get pulled from the Rio Olympics because of zika? No….

    I see Michelle-Lee ahye has been pulled due to the noro-virus too.

    It’s an utter shambles….

    Certain North atlantic countries made such a fuss over zika in Brazil last year, but nobody was withdrawn during the competition as a result of zika. Nobody reported suffering as a result of zika in the immediate aftermath of the Rio Olympics.

    But this Noro Virus or whatever it is seems to be far deadlier. I’ve caught…[Read more]

    On the track, the water seems to drain slower on lanes 1,2,3…I hope that won’t be a factor in the men’s 100m semis and final later today.

    ET and Bowie look very good in the women’s 100m….

    Gardiner and Allen looked very good in the 400m heats….

  • replied to the topic shivfan in the forum Current events 4 months, 1 week ago

    I will be there this evening…hopefully the men’s 100m final doesn’t disappoint.

    Usain Bolt has revealed how the death of his close friend Germaine Mason, the British high jumper, left him so devastated that he was unable to train for more than two weeks, threatening to derail his farewell season.

    Poor start…Bolt wins in 10.07. Shut down, but still not happy.

    Blake did not look good…but Forte did!

    I prefer Eurosport…while Logan and Johnson are chatting, they’re carrying the men’s discus.

    George Osborne got booed in 2012…Sadiq Khan gets a cheer.
