    Caribbean Thread

    Well as the name suggests it'll be about the Caribbean. Mostly about Jamaica though since we usually have the most success. Some surprises in our T&F Trials with the women's 100m Champ from last year's Worlds finishing 4th. Also, in the men's the winner jogged to 9.85, Usain Bolt, and Asafa Powell jogged to 9.97.

    Interestingly (or perhaps not, but meh) from 88-96 the first man over the line in the men's 100m at each games was a Jamaican-born athlete representing another country.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    George Bovell III to medal at some point. No clue what events he's swimming this year.

    Marc Burns and Darrel Brown also threats.
    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."

    19.67 in the 200m for Bolt. Fastest this year and fifth fastest all time.

    'tis a point (last ones who were anywhere close to such times were) - at the same time Julien Dunkley, a 32-year-old rather unknown sprinter, has just been caught by drugs tests for a steroid. This at least hints that the doping programme in Jamaica works.

    Apparently he wasn't informed and only found out in the papers. Itstl. Won't get sorted until after the Olympics one feels.



    In other news, disagreement between Powell's coach who coaches 10 other athletes out of the 52 there and the athletics body. More to come.

    Relevance? Sprinters have failings too?
