Actually Chris, I don't think it is the "wall" effect for Paula.

Many athletes hit "the wall" and carry on.

Thats stupid! I bet if it was Paula who had won gold and Kelly didnt finish her race it would be a different story :D

Sorry, but it's the way I feel. I feel sorry for her, and all that, and would have been delighted for her if she'd have won.

But I'd still rather that Holmes had have won, because a) what she's gone through in the past (pulling out in '96, etc) and b) because I generally like her more.

Not really.

I'd of course have been delighted for Radcliffe if she'd have won, I'm more pleased for Holmes as it is.
