It's good that all these countries buying Kenyan athletes aren't eligible to have them run, like the example for Stephen Cherono and I refuse to call him by his Arabic name.

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".

Crawford is a clown, it was great when Kederis bitchslapped him, at the same time they are both on the juice, so it was a fair contest.

Re: Athletics

Unger in 200m will be interesting for Germany!

Then again we have three good pole vaulters, but Lobinger, Ecker and Börgeling are all chokers in the big events.

Re: Athletics

Just seen the 100m QFs and I'm worried about Kim Collins. He's the last to qualify for the semi with 10'32. Tomorrow's another day, I know but I can't help being worried. Pognon, well, I'm proud of him, 10.11. I hope to see him in the final.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: Athletics

It seems she's been injured during warming-up...that's what commentators said. Don't know more.

Re: Athletics

After the long jump in heptathlon, Klüft is ahead of Barber, but the difference of points is tiny. I've got the feeling that it's gonna be thrilling and tight till the very end! Fun fun fun

Re: Athletics

I didn't like the ladies 10,000m last night. The ethiopians 200m pace at the end The dibaba sisters were so strong

I really wanted Paula, Sun Yingjie or Huina Xing to win

I want Kim Collins to win 100m

the ladies triple jump final tonight I want qiuyan huang or the cuban girl yargelis savigne to win
