There are many events that are in transition especially the mens high jump, except the transition period has been for ages.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Athletics

Well that's not the colour I was wishing to see around Christine's neck but that's better than nothing. And Laura, I disagree. I call a chocker somebody who would have thrown away the race, which hasn't been the case. Congratulations to the winner of course, but thanks Christine for that bronze medal.

The one I really feel like strangling or worse is Mehdi Baala...He made a great 1st half and when the legs have become heavy, as for every other opponent, he looked around and saw that there were some ppl ahead. Instead of fighting, he's slowed down! He's given up, I can't believe it and I certainly can't accept it!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: Athletics

well yes she fought but she just can't win a big race, even though she seemed to be able to win after the heats
anyways she did not seem to be really confident of victory at the start...

Re: Athletics

Kajsa! Finally a big win outdoors. A couple of good tries at the world record. She will make it a warmer day.

Emma! My dad got pissed off when she almost made out with her boyfriend/coach though

Chanté Howard was also fun to watch.

Eunice Barber was being a sore loser all over the Swedish news about that long jump. It obviously slipped her mind that Carolina would have won anyway with her second best jump. Barber also complained about Klüft's behaviour. She was apparently too nice or something.

Yes, sad. But that's just the way it was meant to be.

Don't worry, I knew you could only be referring to Arron, speaking that way!
