Re: 2014 Multi Events

Thank you Geoff and d pickup... I am sure there are very good reasons why some of these athletes are not completing all ten events (eg Reeks) ... but unless one is in the know I immediately think the worse and believe it is due to an injury. (there was a very good breakdown of potential prospects by...
