I think the forum is suffering from too much political whinging and moaning.

Certainly put me off.

Well Tim won't win Gold as he as withdrawn from the Commonwealths today as his injury has curtailed his training.

Puts a bit of a dent in Welsh 4X400M hopes as well.

He was an excellent miler as well but unfortunately for him, found himself in the era of Coe,Ovett,Cram, Elliot which meant he couldn't hope for much better than fifth in Britain, albeit that would have also made him fifth best in the world.

He would certainly have done 12:55 for 5,000M

What is good about BBCs coverage of Athletics? I am sure there must be something. Well for a start it is available free to ALL viewers. To put it another way, it is still the channel that the sport needs to be on. Also BBC outside broadcasts are still the best, certainly technically, however the co...

Yes I had heard the Wabbit's car was suddenly cleaner that it had been in a long time. :lol:

Can't beat a proper technical T-Shirt for this sort of thing rather than a straight cotton one :wink:

James - you say that the Government is responsible for spending our money on athletics. I think we should bear in mind that they have no obligation to spend it on athletics at all and actually could be giving the sport nothing. One of the points behind modernisation was to get the legacy funding and...

Well I think Track and Field is the top of the sport and the part that most supporters and the public see. Although there is good public support for the really big road races e.g. FLM, there isn't really much for your average road, cross country and fell race. Sunday League footballers probably woul...

I can confirm that a true, young, Paula fan won the competition and is absolutely delighted (I have that information directly from her).

Well they call it personality but I don't think that is right. It is Sportsperson of the year. I was OK with Flintoff winning. If he didn't win it this year then a cricketer never would. Was amazed that Paula wasn't short-listed though. What really winds me up though is the coach award. Thought this...
