Re: Outdoor season 2014

There was a discussion on here a few weeks about the men's 400 and how a lot of the 200 guys wouldn't move up to do the 400. So how refreshing is it to see Anyika last year and now DAS having a go in the 400. Running 53.4 in April is really impressive. I hope she continues to experiment with it, we...

I thought we'd gotten over the 'porter in the relay' craze :/

Many men left to fight during WWII, allowing more women to become employed - in teaching, the men never got their jobs back

Re: World indoor relay splits

I don't think that the argument is that she gave up because she was in heavy training, rather that she just couldn't go any quicker! You could see in the heat that she looked laborious.

That was my initial thought, but the split was actually not too bad, and she is likely still in heavy training. The other three were very impressive.

Two really top class relays

52.4 anchor from Christine.. not the greatest, but got the job done

That 2nd leg from US was very fast through 200m, surprised she held on


I originally thought she was slower

Re: BBC coverage plumbs new depths of awfulness?

Eurosport starts their coverage at 3.00 today so I'm stuck with the BBC for an hour. They're interviewing R Kilty ( who's handling himself well) but the only non- emotional / reality show question came from Denise - is he gonna be doing the 200m. I wish they treated football like this and see what ...

KJT takes the lead with 6.81m :D Whoop whoop :D Has anyone ever seen him smile? In his defence, Richard Kilty was UK men's team captain at the 2008 World Junior Champs. I don't think they usually make "arrogant" athletes captain. He does come across as a bit of a dour northern type tbh. T...
