    I hope their sprint relay teams drop the baton in every event. Would wipe the smug, posturing looks off their faces.

    My cricket club is running a tipping comp. At the start of the year you had to tip the outcomes of about 50 different sporting events throughout the year. Had USA most golds as my wildcard (double points). Turns out that China are favourites. Dire.

    Haha stedman, reminds me of that SImpsons episodes where Krusty Burger gave out free tokens with specific events listed on, if USA got gold you got a free burger, they made sure all the events were eastern bloc bankers, the boycott was then announced

    Even when they get it round it sometimes isn't enough.

    Tipping Wariner to give Johnsons 400m WR a shake-up. He mightn't get it, but I reckon he'll go close.

    Id love him to do it, I just dont think he is capable.

    Wariner will go down as a great athlete but Johnson may be the greatest.

    Has been a little past his best recently, has Wariner. Lost the Olympic trials to Merritt. Hopefully he's got his form peak scheduled right.

    AWTA.

    I actually had the privilege of watching Johnsons last ever race live, at the 2001 Goodwill Games in Brisbane

    Biggest obstacle for Wariner at the Olympics could be the air quality, a lot of experts are saying, but we'll see I guess.
