No Fangio, it wasn't aimed at you at all. Another paranoid Pom? I was referring to BigGut's last post - it makes him seem a bit ripped! I agreed with BigGut's view that the policy which Interested was proposing was a non-starter... a good idea though and worthy of debate, not a slanging match. He re...

Not sure whether you are dyslexic or pissed, my friend, and I don't care either way. You were doing half-well for a while, but you've just made yourself look a complete knob! I don't know who Arnott is or what he was accused of doing but pleased he got off if he didn't do it. Just looked through you...

I think you've got a couple of guys in tandem there, trying to wind you up! I understood your point straight off, but like the first guy don't think it would be financially feasible. But at least you put the idea forward... Put it to bed, mate - they've had their fifteen minutes! When are you next o...

My last posting is an open letter to Kelly Holmes who earlier wrote an open letter to me and another poster. This particular posting does not require your input. Droitrob - what is your point? I am a Level 4 coach based in Queensland, Australia - are you actually saying that OCWK is purely an insula...

Dear Dame Kelly Holmes I accept now that your elevated status makes it unlikely that you will join this forum by logging in as a user, but would like an answer to this question (via admin if preferred): are you prepared/do you have any intention of publicly recognising the work of the coaches who de...

Dame Kelly: firstly, I have not mentioned sponsorshuip in any of my postings..read the text! Secondly, I didn't say I didn't understand what you were trying to do, I pointed out merely that you offered to clarify your position and then condensed an overview into a single sentence. Why isn't Dame Kel...

Dear Dame Kelly Holmes, I'm sure you are right in saying OCWK is not about coaching! You say in your response to points made on the forum that you would like to give " a clear picture of what OCWK is all about" . In fact you offer no definition other than describing it as "a structure...

OK Droitrob, I have checked out some names on Po10 and come up with this: I gave my view that there was nothing extraordinary about the results of Kelly's Camp as these are athletes whose normal rate of progress would account for the number of PRs you related. You were astounded by the total of 66 f...

Sorry, mate, I don't have access to AW. If you look up the names of the athletes who made up the first two batches and compare their progressions you will see that none of them improved except that one made a small pb in a single event (if I remember rightly, this one athlete did a pb in 800m and we...

I remember checking the UK rankings lists for, I think, 2005 and 2006 against the names of athletes on Kelly's camps. One of the athletes showed a slight improvement in terms of a single, small pb - the others showed no improvement at all, even a slight falling back. This at an age when annual impro...

Marion Jones has been labelled a liar and a cheat. Trevor Graham told the truth and is a cheat. Does this make him a slightly better person than Marion Jones, or not? How about Carl Myerscough AND his wife?

you've got the wrong end of the stick again. the point i made was, "flaxseed oil" was'nt really what it claimed to be - obviously. the "emu oil" i was referring to would not have been real emu oil - it would have been some other substance. of course they would find no illegality ...

Hi, Interested. Just been flicking through this post and came across your remark about emu oil. I guess it was meant as a sort of jokey comment but it set me wondering. Nobody seems to believe Marion Jones's version of events about the flaxseed oil, it does seem a bit far-fetched that someone would ...

Thanks for that Jon. Actually, I had already accepted the points made by lsabre concerning the dissimilarities of the Greek case. Your posting did raise a couple other points that need comment, I feel. 1) When someone doesn't know where you are, being fifteen minutes away is as good as being in anot...

ok, lsabre, I accept your view and information and am quite happy to leave it at that.
Speaking generally, though, is an athlete who is banned still subject to out of season tests during the period of the ban?

OK lsabre, I'll accept the points you made to an extent - I suppose it was the whole pantomime of the Greek duo's case that brought a lot of the later vilification. However, I think it entirely fair that suspicion should remain over Ohurougu's credibility. Also there must remain a shadow over her co...

The problem I have with the "Ohurougu affair" is that, the similarities between this case and the Kenteris/Thanou case can hardly be overlooked. Basically, there is no positive evidence of drug consumption by either parties because that is the nature of a missed drugs test. It seems a bit ...
