Instead of complaining, for obviously no reason, she'd better focus on the long jump, to qualify first for the final, and then, try to win the right colour of medal this time!

They only how to choke in the big ones. I mean look at Bala, he ran like a muppet my 17yo cousin could have almost beaten him on that effort in the semi.

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".

They should get Sjöberg and Hoen in the box that would be fun.

Norwegian athletics is crap and maybe the Swedes can give them more money.
Swedish TV commentators suck mostly. Maybe there are some radio broadcasts on the web? They should be better.

Actually Sjöberg tried that gig and blew it in 97. He almost said nothing and when he did it was boring. He's chasing birds in Recife, Brasil nowadays together with the Ace of Base nazi, Ulf Ekberg.

You still have the javelin.

Yes, Thorkildsen qualified and hopefully he can qualify. I saw an English interview with him, he speaks American English better than most Americans.

Thanks for sport magazine and the whole Sjöberg the playboy and I read he was in Brasil, yes it's funny cause I don't think Sjöberg was racist at all, but Ekberg I think I will talk about that in the Swedish thread.

How are Haugland, Hoen and Kristiansen as commentators?

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".

I think Sjöberg and Ekberg are Göteborg playboys thet's why they're together. Sjöberg was/is friends with Sotomayor and he dated a black Cuban long jumper for a while, so I don't think he's racist.

Christiansen and Hoen were good. Haugland's dialect was kinda hard to get. She cried tears of joy when Kajsa won and Emma took bronze. That was a little bit strange, honestly.

Baala, another one I feel like he has the talent, he has the means, but not the mental. Do all French competitors suffer the same disease? They lack asskicking!!!! I'm available if they're looking for someone...

Djhone hasn't qualified, but this was expected. He told himself his preparation wasn't over and he even thought about not competing. At least one who is honest! Otherwise, I would have written the 400m on my list today!

Barber is a fighter, but she has to focus now on the long jump. And only 2 days after the end of heptathlon, I suppose it's hard for all those who still have the heavy legs...

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Sotomayor has his own salsa band now and yes Patrik is a big playboy and if it wasn't for him, there wouldn't be all the Swedish high jumpers coming through now.

Haugland is from Haugesund and they have an interesting dialect there and she was going out with Håkan Sarnblom the 2nd best jumper after Hoen. Perhaps Hanne likes Kajsa, then again she wouldn't be the first.

Re: Athletics

I thought the mens 400m good today,

looks like the brits are finally getting some luck, Tim Benjamin of Britain was the quickest being the only to run sub-45 seconds. He was even quicker than Wariner the olympic Champion!

Re: Athletics

Felix Sanchez making the final with a fractured foot, what a warrior he is and the 3k steeple should be good as long as someone who still wants to represent Kenya wins then all the better and not one of the money athletes running for Qatar.

Re: Athletics

Gee guys. What a weather in Helsinki! I wonder if there'll be any competition tonight.
Here in Tallinn, 80 km across the Baltic Sea, it doesn't rain yet. But the winds have been strong the whole day and ships are not going out to the sea.

Re: Athletics

I was wondering why we were granted the replay of what has taken place this morning...I just came back home, well, to be more precise, I rushed back home from the garden, just to not miss the 3k steeple and I've been surprised to see the heats of the 200m! I was about to insult Eurosport, once again, but it seems that this time, they're innocent!

Too sad, I really wanted to see some live events.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015
