Good luck to Paula Radcliffe in the 10,000m, I love watching Paula run!
I am glad that Françoise Mbango Etone is competing in the Triple Jump, I enjoyed watching her win gold at Athens
surely Kenny Bekele and King Gabre are more exciting to watch over the 10,000m distance?

Re: Athletics

I'm really looking forward to Helsinki, I love athletics. I'm mostly interested in the technical disciplines, all throwing and jumping, and of course decathlon and heptathlon.

Any African male is more interesting to watch in these great events. Go the steeplechase that's the event.

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".

You don't like it when they fall in the water jump?

At least the steeplechase isn't like the joke of an event like the high jump is. I remember in the late 80s up to the mid 90s the high jump was a top notch event, now it's even worse when Agassi was making his finals at RG.

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".

It's part of the fun, but it's such a hard event and the fact that the Kenyans always win, well even the moron that runs for Qatar is a Kenyan. The one time when they went 1-2-3 and they were laughing in the final straight.

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".

Pedroso is past it and was a long jumper and not a high jumper.

Fine jumper. I actually liked most of them back then and even the Americans didn't piss me off then.
