Re: Athletes post-pregnancy

Yordanka Donkova almost got back to where she was before her first baby, and from the same country and the same event Ginka Zagorcheva was almost unknown when she had a baby, World Champion 6 years later


Of course, some of those achievements may not have been completely "natural"...

Re: top 10 athletes all time

I would have thought Mildred "Babe" Didrikson would have at least got an honourable mention by now - setting world records for a run, a throw and a jump on the same day

Re: Brussels Diamond League

Well done to Laura Sugar, a new PB for 2nd in the T43/44 200m, and only 4 hundredths off the British record, with Sophie Kamlish behind her in third.

Re: Brussels Diamond League

We've also got Sophie Kamlish & Laura Sugar in the T43/44 Women's 200m, but I bet the BBC won't even mention that, let alone show it (either live or recorded)

Re: zurich entrants out

Re: IAAF World Championships 2013 (Day 9)

Surely Cram's words were very much "tongue in cheek"? If they wanted to keep quiet about it, surely they wouldn't have shown it over and over and over and over.....

Re: BBC Athletics Presenters

If something is boring, I'm glad the presenters have the courage of their convictions to say so. Otherwise we're into the realms of the Sky football coverage where every game is hyped up to be absolutely brilliant, each season is the most hotly anticipated ever and any new signing by a top-4 club is...

Re: Women's 4x400m

Re: BBC Sports Personality of the Year

Yes, but I can't see someone who has "just" won a bronze medal making the final 10 when there's dozens of gold medallists (+ those from non-Olympic sports) for the sports editors to choose from (assuming they're doing it the same way the have for the last few years)

Re: BBC Sports Personality of the Year

And if Lewis Hamilton or Jenson Button win the F1 Championship (unlikely but not inconcievable) they would have to be among the nominees. Rory McIlroy has probably done enough already to make the list, but a successful Ryder Cup may push him up a little further too. Latest odds from Ladbrokes (other...

Re: Paralympics

And why would throwing a club be any less respectable or challenging than throwing say a Javelin? Just because we're used to the current 4 types of throwing implements used for decades, why not something else (e.g. 56lb weight which was once a popular event)

Re: Wiggins

Where have you seen the start order for the Time Trial? All I have found is the start list (where as you say Cancellara is 36 of 39, but that is merely sorted in alphabetical order of NOC.

Re: Maz Okoro to be added to the women's 800m

I agree with most that the selection process was flawed, but I would have not selected Okoro for the 800m. I would have gone with Jackson/Simpson/Meadows, and only if either Jackson or Meadows had not been able to prove their fitness would have then gone with Okoro.
