Article "So Just How Unequal are the Olympic Standards?" by Martin Bingisser on today's "The Best Reading".
Interesting and informative article, except for the fact that Bingisser made no mention...

I agree. Now that Jacko has joined the big boys in age his youth and junior exploits become irrelevant. To generate substantial positive commentary in the future Jacko needs to get on the WC /...

That's probably why you never got into politics. To do that you have to be prepared to make wild unsubstantiated claims and go where no man has gone before - and then hope the public forgets when...

Go put your nose back into your tomes on Keynes, Friedman and Marx. As is often the case your comments make as much sense as the economic gobbledygook that economists so often regurgitate.

Nothing wrong in you predicting Bromell will beat Bolt. Could happen. Most probably think it unlikely. But hey, if you want to put out your reasoning and predictions etc - go for it.
And if you...

Most of us on the board do this from time to time - probably because most of us are approaching impending dementia.
I am sure sponsorship would be very welcome by Jacko and his parents. But the...

Have to disagree with you on your observation. Because of the reference to Jacko "is 74 really old" produced the list to support his comments on Jacko.
04-22-2015, 09:10 PM
Umm, excuse me. The list of throwers I compared him to was the list that you drew up. You produced this list as some sort of example to justify your criticisms about Jacko. So are you saying one...

Jacko threw in 4 competitions in 2014. His best performance was his 20.70 to win the Oceania Championship. As we all know he bombed out at Glasgow.
In 2013 when he was 18 he threw in 5...
It still pisses me off that qualifying is so easy for marathoners (2:17.0) with 688 and so difficult for other events, eg the long jump 8.15 With only 20 qualifiers in 2014

I equated their respective high school age performances as being roughly of equal merit. 23.00m (75'6") for Jacko with the 6kg. And 77'2 3/4" with the 12 lb for Crouser

There is no doubt Jacko has his work cut out, not so much from your the list but from all of the 15 or so active 70 foot plus shot putters.
On your list of high school throwers I would rank the...

To first be able to attract comments on this board she has to be fast and she is. But to keep on attracting on going discussion she has to be more than just fast as there are a lot of equally fast...

There's a challenge for you zues2014. I for one would like to know your rationale as to why a 10.92 Elaine Thompson is the future of women's sprinting when a younger 10.92 Jenna Prandini is just a...

Being in high school at age 19 is pretty old. And therefore to see the real worth of his time it is better to compare to the IAAF world junior all time list which is 40 deep and stops at 3:35.80. I...

Schippers 100m time/performance is even more impressive if she has, as one presumes, been doing a significant amount of heptathlon training.
04-19-2015, 07:03 AM
If she jumped 6-4.50 then that is scaled down to 1.94m
6-4.25 is scaled down to 1.93m

White, black, yellow, freckled, brown. Who gives a toss. What she is, is bloody fast and appears to gave the potential to go all the way to the top. With her, Schippers, Bowie and others the...

Beebee has described your "perverted system of honor" to perfection. Your rationale would have to be one of the most pathetic justifications I have ever read on this board.
Because drug cheats...

Why is that Jumbo? While Val Adams and Adam Nelson would have preferred receiving their gold medals on the Olympic podium late is still a hell of a lot better than never.

My sentiments apply to Barnes, Gatlin and the whole gamut of cheats across the international spectrum. As another example, if it wasn't for a guy from Belarus, and a Belarus compatriot from memory,...

I consider the record to be 2.45 because that is what it is. I don't play Aaronk games. However I would love to have the situation that would have seenhis performances negated because let's face it...
The TNF equivalent would be the 100m sprint with:
1. Full use of arms as we have now
2. Arms held above the head
3. Arms stretched out at right angles
4. Arm held directly in front if you...
