Re: Sword

The new NGB can fill the clubs up with good coaches that the old NGB scared away, that would be the ideal start to get athletics working again. The clubs were conveinently blamed for all the short comings in athletics but we now know 21st centuary UKA are ten times worse.

Re: Does Track and Field define an Olympic Games?

Well there will be 80,000 spectators at the stadium which is double of that of all other sports, that answers it for me.

Re: Phillips Idowu talks injury speculation, Confidence of g

Let us put things into perspective instead of trying to be armchair psycholgists :wink: (and bad ones at that!) Phillips is doing what Phillips wants to, and he like every other athlete has the right to follow thier own paths, as most in the past have done, and done so highly successfully. The probl...

Re: Who should light the Olympic flame?

So if you really do dislike whats going on in Startford and the fact that 7 young hopefuls who may or not make it future lit the torch, may I humbly suggest you turn off your TV till the 13th of August. That makes no sense at all. Why would my thinking the last 20 minutes of the Opening Ceremony wh...

Re: Who should light the Olympic flame?

The Olympic motto is faster, higher, stronger. Would Sir Steve like to tell us which of his 5 greater than Daley Olympians did all 3 of those?. His argument is plain idiotic. Yes he won 5 medals at 5 games but that simply isn't possible in many events where the requirements of the event and the fer...

Re: Who should light the Olympic flame?

I don't think his performance (which some say the 4min mile was beaten to by another runner) is anywhere near the level of performance by Daley who broke wmore difficult world records than Bannister.

Re: Injury Concerns for GB Athletes

Re: Who should light the Olympic flame?

Thats what I was thinking S.V :) He ran the 100m in around 10.2 so with intensive hurdling coaching he might have been another Jackson/Jarret?

Re: Who should light the Olympic flame?

I agree soviet vest, Daley could have been an outstanding longjumper/sprinter and possibly a great 110hurdler to maybe even a top pole vaulter as he had the speed and strength in short like many multi eventers (Ennis 100h, Cluft L.J) they could have been champions in individual events. I especially ...

Dead right steve, she is good enough to rest it until the day of the competition, because another early low arm will b*gger her elbow up and cost her a medal opportunity.

8) :D Steve I had hoped that when the lottery came into effect it would have taken over the good works people like Eddie Kulikundis (excuse the spelling) did with their wealth. I do not believe the lottery funder wants accountability in the totalitarian we control all with an iron fist system, I thi...

There was a great article in the Mail yesterday on Daley Thompson and the German giant who pushed Thompson to so much Glory, so for me I would love to see these two giants of athletics get the honour.

This is why I intensely dislike the overbearing contracts for cash UKA hand out to their priveledged few.
