    I would of said she was a favourite, not the number 1 but up there. Anyway Karma came back to get Judith Arndt, who is famous for given the German selectors the one fingered salute when she got silver in Athens after they did not pick her friend and team mate Petra Rossner (well they are more then just friends if you know what I mean).

    BTW that Korean chick who went head first into the ditch did not finish.

    yeah she was amongst the favourites, but in most of the predictions i've seen 8 or 9 of the other events were rated as being better Gold Medal chances for GB. In one she was rated a 2/5 chance of Gold and another i saw predicted a bronze.

    Albero Contador gave Stef Clement (Netherlands) a hiding early on but may be paying for starting too quickly. Sweden's Gustav Erik Larsson is looking a decent outside chance for a medal.

    Fabian 'Spartacus' Cancellara has given Stefen Shumacher and absolute pasting and is looking like an absolute cert to get gold at this stage.

    Come on Larsson!
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    In the women's cycling, Britain have been performing brilliantly.
    Also with the men's race, today Cancellara gave an honourable race.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.

    True. How do they do that? Like Woods at the US Open.

    Mentally tough stuff.

    If you're seriously questioning Cadel Evans' mental toughness because he was unable to win a medal whilst riding with a snapped ligament, or win the tour de france when he was racing 1 again 9, you're an idiot.
