    That race, post race reaction, and then interview was my highlight of the '08 Olympics. People who think it reflects poorly on her, or Australia, can go and get ****ed. Don't think I've ever seen someone so excited to win an Olympic medal of any sort, was sensational.

    Ruckus, Of course not. No one does. She runs in harder than Tom Slingsby though, so that's something.

    I thought the hot american one was in with a chance. Btw read somewhere Ennis would have qualified fastest given her heptathlon time? That's crazy why didn't she contend?

    Reckon there are other ways to lose such as false starting, knocking over a handle, having a poor start etc. It wont be easy.

    On an unrelated note, I do wish this event was still part of the Games.

    I didn't actually watch the video, non do I remember it, but I can't think of a worst way to judge than a person than a interview moments after a race. hate it so much.

    Said she wanted to give her body a rest.

    It's a shame I think. Would have been endlessly hilarious if she'd entered as an afterthought and then beaten the Aussie into second.

    Yeah as hilarious as a ham sandwich.

    She's an exceptional athlete Ennis so it would be quite normal for her to enter into an event that she is clearly terrific at and win gold.

    She was saying she's hardly slept recently, I don't think she'd have been mentally or physically right for it.

    Shame really, it has been mentioned in the press, it maybe her main aim from now on.

    Have about as much chance as me

    Pearson won the WC in 12.28, Enniss' best is 12.50 something

    Enniss is a great heptathlete but Sally would have to be shot to lose to her

    Should we pour 500 million bucks straight down the ****ter in the form of a couple of holes in the ground that no-one can account for OR spend it on sporting facilities/athletes

    You obviously have a very lose definition of infrastructure

    The Olympics isn't ****, but I have to say the Olympics website is. I am trying to find out which semifinal our hockey girls will be in, yet I cannot find it anywhere. Every schedule, timetable, etc only has "Semi Final 1" or "Semi Final 2" listed - it doesn't say whether it's 1st in Pool A vs 2nd in Pool B or vice versa. Driving me mad, I'm desperately looking for tickets but what's the point when I don't know what time the game is?
