    Yeah, at first I didnt care whether guys like he and Chambers competed in the Olympics again but after seeing how many of the ****ers there are (e.g. frog in the track cycling, gold medallist in the road race, etc etc), it's starting to give me the ****s

    What's more, it's painfully obvious that the bans arent long enough as there is little to discourage athletes from having a punt when the rewards are so high

    Ha, Steve Cram basically just accused the Algerian who won the 1500m semi of being on something on live telly.

    "Now I've never seen Makhloufi run like this before. Never. & that's unusual to see this Algerian be this good...I'm not sure what I'm watching with Makhloufi there. That was something that was rather surprising in the heats and he's been equally as eye-catching in the semi."
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
    - The Guardian's Andrew Anthony

    Haha yeah this was rather amusing. Watching via bbc stream and he might as well have just said "he's on the juice".

    Adams has been included in start lineup

    Always wondered what the officials who make up about 25% of any team do

    Answer: sweet **** all by the looks of it

    Pistorius up.

    Thoughts on him being allowed to run? Think benchy said he was anti earlier.

    Good news, hopefully the stress of the situation doesn't hinder her.

    Another PB for Solomon, awesome run considering he's only 19, hopefully enough to make the final.

    Steffensen would've done better.

    Added benefit of making Steffensen look like a complete **** in the process

    Pistorius though, one of the most amazing feats I've seen.

    Rooney very disappointing run from him, usually so strong down the home straight and had nothing.
