She didn't perform to her best here, but she has some fine results to her name, including Olympic 4th.
She has been suffering with very serious ill-health. Give her a break!
If Lisa reads this board, (which I doubt), I would imagine she would take your mostly unkind comments to heart.
Did she not do well even to make the Olympics this year, let alone the final?
My comments were not about if she had 'done well' or not, it was about her total lack of anything resembling a tactic. Her ill health has NOTHING to do with this.
I said she was talented and hard working and 4th at OG is an amazing achievement but maybe not so much when you should have got a medal, have you seen where she was when Jamal made a break in 04 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMnnptAtSas
and this year she does EXACTLY THE SAME THING.
I was wrong to say she had never run well, in Berlin she was in exactly the right place at the right time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHRhF7sSXeM
and came home with a Silver medal (could have been gold if she dipped) in Barcelona she was running a flawless race then just at 200m when she should have started a kick, instead getting her elbows out and fighting for her place she lets 5 athletes over take her !! and suddenly she's 6th !! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3qlTdPQp44
The reason she infuriates me is because she has SO MUCH talent but throws medals away left right and centre with the same awful tactics and lack of killer instinct, she runs like a novice constantly worried she might upset someone and more concerned with being polite than winning.
Can you please point out any of these observations that are incorrect
