Youv'e missed the point. GB athletes such as roadrunner deserve recognition for at least being in the race. Okay, so maybe he was xx minutes behind the winner, but it was probably his career best performance to date and hopefully come London he'll have progressed again and at some point Foster will ...

I wonder whether Foster is getting lazy, or simply isn't bothered with the UK athletics scene any longer? The standard of his commentating has definately dropped, especially over the last couple of years. He's always made the odd gaff, which makes you wonder how he ever got to be as good as he was, ...

Surely every name in the world must have some such tenuous link?

There is a difference between a single name and a name quoted with a specific link.

The main difference is that magazines such as Runners World have developed a website specifically for their market. Advertise a race, have an online entry system, have a discussion about the race, rate the race afterwards etc... Kit reviews, links to stores all draw the crowds in. The event forums a...

Anything that requires subjective scoring, ie figure skating, diving, synchronised swimming... gets dumped out of my ideal Olympics.

It's not about putting her down. It's about putting things in to perspective. I'm impressed by Paula's performances no end, but giving away a bib as a prize - Pleeeaaaseeee!!!

I doubt whether Mick Hill or Steve Backley would have wanted to hold such a pompous press conference to announce how they intended to milk the celebrity cash cow in the future for all it's worth. To break world records or to win global titles requires enormous commitment and talent, regardless of wh...

Most of all they should encourage participation and performances not stifle them I have over the years helped out at track meetings for junior age groups, and one thing I hate is seeing kids disqualified in relays. At one meeting the changeover for one team was 'probably' half a yard outside the bo...

A fell page may inspire me to start buying the magazine on a regular basis again, although I don't think the rest of the mag is a particularly high standard anymore.
