I've finally got time off work and am able to go to Barcelona, but have not booked yet. Where are you guys all staying?

I think you'll find there are just a few (Million) more people that want to watch Eastenders than the WIC. No I can't believe that! Eastenders is just total s**t and should be banned from our screens. In its place should be re-runs from Golden Leagues from previous years. That's how much i "lo...

What I fail to understand is the rubbish you guys put up with. The BBC is government funded (in part), you pay taxes- so, in my simplistic thinking, you have a stake in the BBC. You then get whacked again with the licence fee (how quaint!) and they have the temerity to dictate what people watch. It...

Sanders is a goddess. She should go on anchor leg. The order should be Sotherton, Okoro, Ohuruogu, Sanders.

I have two comments/thoughts on this. First of all, many years ago I used to compete in the Southern Men's League. Our club had a reasonable core of runners able to do the 4x100m relay, but our team got thrown together about 45 mins before the event. We normally ran between 45 and 48 seconds and I w...

Likewise one would not expect Ian Huntley, if he were ever released, to be able to get a job at a school?

Those posters old enough to remember Pamela Stevenson on Not The Nine O'Clock News will recall the "cutting off the goolies" sketch. IMHO, this should be applied to all systematic drug users. It is the only solution!

I feel sorry for Tyrone Edgar and Marlon Devonish, one or both of whom will not be going to Beijing in the 100m.

I wonder why the delay? I just hope that whoever is appointed has the courage to make the radical changes the sport needs.

I hear there was an argument between an UKA employee and a volunteer at the meeting. Anyone have more details?

BMC Millfield

The W3000 tonight has the potential to be an amazing race. Twell vs Hamblin vs Stanford vs Pidgeon. However Felton would look to be the favourite. Start lists are on the BMC site.

No it is just that as always you fail to provide any evidence for your assertions.

Eldrick is right - you are a twonk!

More logically 50.2 would be 4th or 5th but then Christine did beat TWD... I see the papers are giving Dave Collins a hard time today. Now I am not a fan of Collins but I have some sympathy for him as he did not have any say in the selection of those athletes chosen to go to Melbourne. Let's hope th...

What a disappointment

Having watched the sport avidly for 25 years I have never been so disappointed by an outdoor championship. Had it been at World or Olympic level I doubt we would have got a single medal, maybe perhaps a bronze by Christine O. We have the talent coming through at a junior level (Rooney, Ennis, Picker...
