David Rudisha

There's a story floating about that Rudisha has retired due to a knee injury.
Here it is:

But is this is legitimate or a not exactly side splitting April Fool?

Re: Outdoor Results 2013

Pan-American Junior Championships in Colombia.
Upset in the 100m men's final where Zharnel Hughes of Anguilla beat the US and Jamaican runners fairly comfortably to win in 10.31.
I've mentioned before that, like Delano Williams and Shara Proctor, his only route to the Olympics is via Britain.

Re: BRITISH ATHLETICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS TEAM

With Eng, Aus, Jam, Bah, Tri, and South Africa fielding teams, I cannot see the Welsh 4 by 400 getting anywhere near a medal. Is Christian malcom retired? Not saying he would medal.

Re: Bolt - "I'm clean"

However there are rumours there's another story about to break.
To quote Ato Boldon's twitter feed

Apparently we aren't done just yet. Stay tuned.

Alan Oliveira

Alan Oliveira ran 20.66 at the Paralympic World Championships this week.
Here's a column that suggests he could be a serious contender for the Rio Olympics running a estimated 44.3 (and that seems less than generous)for the 400m.

Re: BRITISH ATHLETICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS TEAM

Not really much to say about this. Sensible team selection.
Possibly could have added one or two more but literally only one or two more.

Not entirely sure of the exact translation but it appears that Turkish athletics may have imploded. What I think this means is that 13 more Turkish athletes have been implicated in doping. http://www.ankarahaber.com/haber/Turk-atletizminde-doping-skandal%C4%B1-buyuyor/138693 Might even explain why T...
