Re: Diamond League Doha

The red button is usually channel 301 on Freeview and, as such, is recordable if you've got a hard rive / DVD recorder. Don't know if this is possible on Tivo, Sky, etc.

Re: Valerie Adams Fan Interview

1) Who was your 'Athletics hero(ine) that inspired you to get into the sport? 2) You've been so dominant for so long now, what drives you on to keep coming back year after year, raising your game all the time? 3) Do you believe Lisovskaya's WR will ever be within the reach of a clean athlete? (I'd p...

Re: Athlete caught using fake penis by tester!

Wasn't it Katerina Krabbe who did something similar ? From what I can recall, she was one of three women athletes from the same who were tested and the urine when tasted was evidently from one person. I think it was rumoured that it also appeared to have been passed by a man! I presume some sort of...

So we may be in 3rd place after leg 3 but sure won't be at the finish line, if the heats are anything to go by


Damn, wish I was wrong :x

Re: BBC Athletics Presenters

I always aim for balance... and I have been very critical of CJ...but, to be very fair, he has added some useful information to the commentary of the women's 100 hurdles... I am really enjoying the Cotter chap... excellent work. I haven't really minded CJ so far in these champs. He still comes out ...

Re: Is Isinbaeva devoid of integrity of character?

Isinbaeva made a statement that asked for some humans to be deprived of basic human rights as seen in my culture. Yes, I do condemn her attitude. As does everybody else. However you are avoiding the point of the acceptability of your own discrimination. I really don't understand who you think he is...

Williams has an outside chance of getting through from the easiest M 400mH semi. I don't hold up much hope for Greene or Rodger though unfortunately.

Re: IAAF World Champs 2013 (day 3)

Sharman should be secretly pre-selected on his interview alone. Here's a guy who consistently performs when given opportunities to prove his ability and then shows he's very disappointed to finished 5 in his 3rd world champs final. If only more had his attitude.

Long overdue and I'm pleased for him. Wilson did amazingly well to grab the silver after smashing at least 4 hurdles during that race. Sharman should be proud of his performance.
