Athletics is great to watch, although the usual doping suspicions ruin a few things as always.
Great to be Swede these days too, Klüft, Olsson, Holm, Bergqvist, Mustafa, Wissman, and the two and only Kallur sisters
Somehow I suspect though that the team will not live up to expectations - Holm is consistent but ofter comes up short
, Olsson isn't the best after injury, Vlasic seems to be a lock for gold or even WR, and even Klüft doesn't own the world best anymore (although she'll likely deliver at crunch time).
As for other nations - go Bekele (can he break the impossible 3000 rec with the right pace?) and Isinbajeva
. Torkildsen also GWH
But a comeback for Hoen, well, he only made 2,35 himself so not that much better than these days although he could have taken last years WC - 2,32
