Re: Athletics

Carolina just needs to finish a sec behind Barber to win
but she's the better runner.

should win it

LOL@Sotherton's javelin

mens 100m final today
100m used to be a great event.

now there are no greats, its heavily tainted, and too many big-mouthed idiots (esp from US) who think they are better than everyone else.

Re: Athletics

Kom igjen Klüft, she'd have to be better over 800m and should win her title.

I love it the old man Lars Riedel has made another discus final, he won't win, but one of the few German athletes I like.

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".

She tried to take a warm up jump and had no chance and didn't start the competition. There were a few surprises in that event.

Didn't he suffer from some back injury just before the WC? I've seen him interviewed yesterday, after the qualies. It was in German, but he has such an accent and the loudspeakers were partly covering his voice...so I've had some trouble getting what he was saying to Heike Drechsler (correct sp?...). What I have understood for sure is that given the situation (which one? the back injury?) he was very happy to reach the final.

Yes, well there has always been drugs in sprints and as for the 100m as long as an American doesn't win that is good.

Crawford calls himself "Cheetah Man", what a dickhead he is.

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

omg his terrible accent! even i have problems to understand him
yes he is very happy to reach the final with over 66 m (season best for him) and he wants to try for a medal. this guy is great, 38 years old, 8th world chmpionship and still able to compete.

Well thanks for pointing this out! I was starting to wonder if my German abilities were still worth!

I don't know much about him, because I'm not what you could call a fan of discus...but it's such a long time since I'm hearing his name when I'm watching athletics on tv...And knowing that he's 38 only adds to my admiration!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Lars is a cool guy even though he looks like Al Bundy from the TV series "Married with Children." Isn't he from Zwickau or somewhere like this?

Dreschler speaking English is interesting as well.

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".

Heike speaks rather good French but I prefer when she speaks in English...that's easier for me to understand. That's always the case for German ppl who speak average French, that's pretty hard at first because of the influence of German pronunciation. But I say for the effort made!

Well, we know now who's gonna have the right to compete for the crown of the 100m...I'm happy as well as disappointed. I so much wished Pognon to reach the final. But he's young, he's got time to improve. I was worried for Kim Collins, he's kinda reassured me. Though I fear he has hardly any chance of medal tonight. He's the one I'm gonna cheer for, together with Burns. Oh, don't repeat it but I prefer Kim when he has a beard, like he had yesterday! I know, nothing to do with the race but hey, who said it had to be only those kinds of comments?

Mutola has impressed me in the 800m semi. I have to admit I didn't expect her to reach the final. Glad that she's proven me wrong.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: Athletics

Congratulations Carolina for taking the gold and Eunice for the silver. Wrong tactic choice in the 800m for Eunice, which has been lethal to her. But special award to those 2 for their fairplay all through the competition. Seeing Carolina clapping her hands with the crowd, as Eunice was asking for some support before her last javelin throw must stay as an example!

Re: Athletics

Hehe, I just have to say it here - our young Gerd Kanter (I think he's 23 or smth) took silver in the discus competition.
Virgilius Alekna from Lithuania was too good. I like to watch Alekna throw discus, usually it looks so smooth and beautiful. He got scrared for a moment by Kanter's result but made a great final attempt. I'm happy with the outcome as Alekna deserved the title, he is also more experienced. Great competition. Just as the women't hepathlon. Congrats to Karolina Klüft.
