    It is not a matter about whether he is clean now. From what I understand (and admittedly it is very little) he has gained a lifetime physical advantage from his earlier use of drugs. It is...

    And of course lets stick our head in the sand and forget the Dennis Mitchell, John Drummond, Tyson Gay scenarios. Appointing Mitchell and Drummond as national coaches seems to me to have...

    Should Nike sponsor Gatlin?

    While there is nothing illegal about Nike sponsoring Gatlin, it does, in my opinion, send an unsavory message about the priorities of Nike. Clearly in their chase for revenue dollar they are happy to...

  6. Mo Farah not European says Fabian Roncero - Is he correct?

    A potentially explosive and divisive subject on "The Day's Best Reading".

    "Former" European half marathon record holder says he is still the rightful claimant to being European record holder as Mo...

    Looking on from afar down here in the Antipodes it would seem to me that the best schedule would be one that mirrored the Olympic schedule as much as possible.

    I lived in the USA for 8 years in the 1970s - 4 years on a track scholarship at WSU Pullman and then 4 years at USMA West Point as an assistant coach. I do not recall T&F getting a hell of a lot of...

    T&F has never been a big time mainstream sport. In the pre-drugs era of the 1970s T&F was never big in mainstream media. You would get occasional big names who would attract media attention but...

    And goes into the world lead for now, ahead of Ryan Whiting's 21.27 at Waitakere Stadium 4 weeks ago. Walsh did 20.24 that day. Tom Walsh is a big man. But the thing I remembered most about that day...

    The IAAF site has a news headline for last week "Rudisha opens with an impressive 1:45.01 in Sydney". A week later his 1:44.94 is not impressive.

    If you wish to re-instate the likes of Marion Jones, Ben Johnson et al, and presumably Lance Armstrong while you are at it, that of course is your prerogative.

    However, I am not wanting to...

    As far as I am concerned there is no time limitation on justice. If it takes 10 years, 20 years to prove someone was a cheat then so be it. Let it take 10 years, 20 years.

    If it takes 10 years,...

    What a nonsense statement. There is nothing disrespectful at all in thrusting Schippers as a 100 medal contender. No one is asking you to, but based on her performances last year and her indoor...

    Matthew Wyatt was the clear favourite in the men’s long jump, but was upstaged by Manawatu’s Jordan Peters. Distances were affected by very challenging conditions with...

    Unfortunately Mike Powell appears to only be able to "talk the walk" and is unable to "walk the walk". However, to be fair, it was cool (18C - 65F) windy and raining at times.

    I agree that it does appear inevitable that Bukowiecki will surpass the 23.00 of Jacko on or before 31 December 2016. Let's hope he does. However, there was also an air of inevitability about Jacko...

    I am sure that is doable - and especially if it is done in conjunction with Cooter Brown's ice-capade suggestion. A standing LJ with a piranha light show through an ice prism. Very cool.

    Especially when it comes to certain very pro-Jamaicans and a few very anti-Jamaicans (or should I say pro-US)
