On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Another dud relay effort by the Aussies. Who was the chump who swam third and thought we'd better give the other mobs 2 bodylengths start on the changeover?

    Bring him home.

    Yep. Like the running track in that TV series "The Games" that was on before Sydney 2000. The 100 metres track was 94 metres long. Contractor: "Not a problem really, is it?"

    LOved the quality from the US relay team. As Clapo said, that was a quality choke from the French.

    I'm hoping so much that US come out on top of the medal lead. Red China and their sweat-shop olympic athlete production-line shouldn't get ahead!

    NBC here did a piece on their gymnast programs and they meant it to be flattering toward their athletic training programs, but it came out looking absolutely horrid for them, with kids as young as 2.5-3 years, hundreds of them, working 4-5 hours even at that age.

    I reckon because his unhinged mind thinks her success makes it look like everything is normal, and him praising her makes him look like less of a racist.

    She is very popular in Zimbabwe though, I've seen pictures of her parade through Harare after Athens and many black and white people celebrate her victories. She is typical of many white Zimbabweans in that she is still very loyal to her country; she's probably lived in the US long enough to qualify for them but she still competes for the land of her birth.

    Actually find that a tad perverse tbh. For all the talk of sporting boycotts, surely a stronger signal would be that even the country's own sportspeople refuse to pledge allegiance to the dictator.

    World record today though, congrats

    Phelps - that's the biggest margin in a big race since Might and Power in the Caulfield Cup.
