:roll: Do you have selective reading or are you just stupid? I've already said I'm a fan of Benhassi and El Guerrouj and I quite like Souad Ait Salem and Abderrahim Goumri. Wow ! I should be grateful you are a fun of El Guerrouj :) Likewise, I picked him for a medal at Osaka. He was about as crap a...

It's all making sense now isn't it ! Moroccans, Algerians, French Nations of North African decent are all unclean :)
Is this the reason you dont like them Nevets, or is it more serious than that ?

:) I am not forcing you to adore Moroccans ! the fact remains you have a history of not sellecting them in your predictions when they are domainiting their events or are at the top 5 in the IAAF list...

By the way I am not a patriot, in fact I like the non Africans to do well in all middle and distance events. I just dont understand why Nevets when even she talks about the events Moroccans do well at she always refuses to mention them. I had a go at her/ him once in the old BBC forum and she/ he wa...

Do you think they would do it for free or for a charity ? no I dont, they need the dosh, there is not much money made in Olympic sports.

Most of these athletes have not made it in the big stage, so therefore they are targeted.

Does this mean that all those athletes who this week suspended until their hearing actually miss 2012? I think the IOC will have no choice but to ban anyone who is unlucky to get caught :) just to give the game more publicity and more profile ....Big deal ! to me a great athlete is someone who is/w...

One other point I've noticed is most people seem to accept that the overall GB team medal potential for Beijing should be about 3 to 4, with a possible gold ! I wont be, there is a lot of money being spend in UK athletics mostly on sprinters which is not fair on middle and distance runners and of co...

I believe strongly in discipline and full dedication to the event the athlete taking part in. If athletes wants to show off on the track and off it, there are free to do so, but in general people who show off, lucks confidence and are insecure in life .. when it comes to decision making and serious ...

Phillip Idowu does not have the mental strength to win an Olympic gold medal, if he spend as much time practicing mental imagery sessions than piercing his body part. he might stand a chance in wining a medal. His fellow team mate Nathan Douglas has a better chances in winning a major medal, he look...

How many medals do you think GB team can win in Beijing

Christine Ohuruogu to win one bronze in the 400m and the other at the 4*4, the rest to my understanding will be lucky to make the finals. Before some of you might have a go at me for not supporting GB athletics team, I have nothing against the team, I wish them luck, I am sure most of them are happy...

Disappointing Crystal Palace London Grand Prix !

Horrible performances, horrible coverage, horrible times, average athletes ... This London grand prix should be relegated to a third division .... The most disappointing factor to me was the weather that no one can predict was perfect for a good night of athletics .

Should Dwain Chambers challenge the BOA ?

In my opinion the former World Anti-Doping Agency boss Dick Pound was right in saying chamber has a case to be answered to and he can challenge a vulnerable British Olympic Association in the high court. I am not a lawyer but if I was I would take on the case to make a name for myself and to get Mr ...
