Also read the comments of the frenchs readers in here: http://www.lequipe.fr/Cyclisme-sur-p...-argent/304195

Looks like brittish are the new dopers for the frenchies. I guess this is what happens when you start to shine in cyclism (Wiggins) and tennis (Murray).

I'm waiting for an Andy Murray muppet at Les Guignols.
I'm glad they are asking these questions. British cycling is very supicious right now with legions of Team Sky & BC track riders improving by leaps and bounds at the same time. Marginal gains...

Doubts raised over Great Britain's "magic wheels"

“Mavic wheels or magic wheels?” So read the headline in Monday’s L’Équipe as the French cycling federation’s national technical director Isabelle Gautheron pondered the startling success of the Great Britain team in track events at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The British squad has won four gold medals and a bronze in the opening four days of competition on the track. While that haul of medals is in itself hardly a surprise, the number of world records set and the improvement in British times since the world championships in April have raised questions in the French camp about the material they are using.

“We’re asking a lot of questions. How have they gained so many tenths of a second per lap in the space of a few months? And even seconds in the pursuit?” Gautheron said, according to L’Équipe.

After stressing that she was not casting aspersions of doping on her cross-channel rivals, Gautheron noted that the British squad had been very secretive about its equipment during the Games, and in particular their wheels, which are badged as Mavic.

“They cover up their wheels a lot,” Gautheron said. “The ones on the bikes they use in competition are placed under covers as soon as they finish. Unlike frames, wheels don’t have to be ratified by the UCI. Are they really Mavic wheels?”

All equipment used on the track must be commercially available, however, and Mavic’s events manager Jacques Corteggiani insisted that the British team were using the same wheels as all other Mavic-supplied federations, including France and Australia.

“For us, they all have the same material,” Corteggiani told L’Équipe. “Our sponsorship manager Thomas Davy is on site and for him, there’s no problem.”

British Cycling’s performance director Dave Brailsford said that his team was successful “thanks to the best training and the best equipment,” before joking, “there’s no secret about our wheels: they’re round.”

Liu Xiang gets dominated by the first hurdle and is out of the 110s. Surprising result.

Liu Xhang has dreaded luck at the Games, he hopped down the track. Carried off by fellow athletes.

Fuck no, Liu Xiang. The ONLY Chinese athlete I cared about.

Great win for Norway in the handball 21-19, they were down by 4 goals and defeated Brazil who were undefeated in the group play.

At least they will be in the medal round.

Indeed. I think you're letting yourself be carried away by prejudices and not being fair and just to female footballers, who've made leaps and bounds in the last few years and now display high standards of quality.

WTA is dreadful, I'll give you that.
