    Olympic Passion

    Did anyone see Jana Pittman's response to being told she won't make the Olympics. She was balling her eyes out and could hardly talk and my heart just sank. I've never seen her run, nor am I a big fan of athletics, but you could see how much she wanted to make the Olympics, and how much it meant to her, you couldn't help but feel sorry for her.

    It just goes to show how much these athletes put in to make the Olympics every four years.

    She is heading off to England to get a second opinion and undergo some miracle surgery, but with the Olympics only a couple of days away, I doubt she will have much success, but for her sake I hope she does.

    Doctors tell Jana it's over

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Apparently there is still some chance that she will run. Only a very slim one though....

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Yeah, woke up to that tops news.

    60% chance of running is looking very good for her compared to that of a day or so ago.

    What a turn around, from not going, now to a good chance of competing and in all likelyhood do well.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    if she runs she isnt going to be 100% hence a medal isnt a realistic goal...

    Some would even say that Pittman's chances of running are better than the Raiders making the 8.

    Abandon all hope of a medal. There's no way she could get back to 100% fit, but then again, it's the olympics.....
