    Relevance? what do you mean?

    It is a news item on a T&T ex-athlete that I have put in the Caribbean Olympic Thread. This is the prefectly relevant place for a news item like this.

    I dont get your point. It is news and a topical story of interest given the background and current Olympics.

    Why is it news though? You don't see the names of every rapist who gets 21 years in jail written in the newspaper - most times when a rape conviction occurs it's merely recorded by the police and the judicial branch. I don't see why this should be different because he took part at the Olympics before, and I certainly don't see what there is to discuss about it - except the inevitable: some athletes, like some humans, are nasty pieces of work.

    Never heard of Alvin Henry. How sad for him.

    On another note, 3 Jamaicans and 2 Trinidadians in the 100m final mefinks. Liking Caribbean chances.

    Unfortunately for Daryl Brown, he was injured and could not participate in the 2nd round heat. Particularly unfortunate because he got injured in Round 1 in Athens. The man is widely regarded as one of the biggest talents in sprinting, but can't stay fit enough to showcase it. Also hurts the 4x100m chances severely for T&T.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Powell spoils the 1,2,3 for the Caribbean. Well done by Thompson.

    Churandy Martina disappointed that the Netherlands Antilles have been traded to Africa.

    (was involved in a memorable bit of commentary "and he sets a personal best, which of course is a national record for the Netherlands Antilles, they're not that big")
