    Don't think anyone's ever touched that kind of speed from 50 to 100. Insane.

    Now, about that HGH test...

    Being a Jamaican, Bolt loves cricket and in he said Beijing last week that his cricketing idols were Australians Adam Gilchrist and Matt Hayden.

    "They bat aggressive and I really like it, that is who I am really,'' Bolt said.

    In other news, great run by Tomescu Dita of Romania in the marathon, oldest ever winner.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Good on her!

    Ndereba gets silver and Kenya are finally off the mark medals wise.

    Ha, Paula Radcliffe doing what she was born for: jibbing it.

    When did we get so bad at athletics? We could seriously end up with no medals at all in the worst case scenario.

    I know, far cry from the previous two decades

    When I was a kid, Athletics was our all-time most successful sport, in terms of global champions (ie, worlds, Olympics and any other equivalent). Cycling seems to be top dog now.

    Dire, bagging Radcliffe is the most uncool thing ever. She is arguably our best track & field athlete for the last 10 years or so, can't knock her for that.

    Her failure to win the big one will always count against her. That is, of course, assuming she doesn't somehow do it in London
