    Threads about Olympic sports in the Olympic forum? Whoda thunk it?!!

    Track & Field is the spotlight of the Olympics for most people, and you think there shouldn't be a thread? good one

    Could a mod change the thread title to "Olympic Athletics Thread" please. Athletes compete in athletics.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Valerie Vili to win NZ's only Track & Field gold at these Games. In fact it might be our only medal in Track & Field.

    Found myself calling it Track & Field lately for some reason. It's odd, because when I used to run, I used to refer to training as going to the "track" but would never call the sport anything other than Athletics.

    Always called it Track and Field tbh, but used to say Athletics Day when I was at school.

    100m heats started. Despite the fact that he's American, I hope Tyson Gay smashes both Bolt & Powell.

    Bolt & Powell both hugely impressive in their heats. Both slowed to a jog in the last 10.
