    Does anyone or any media, like Swimming World magazine, keep track of collegiate records set in 25m and 50m pools? Personally, I think they are long overdue to switch to the 50m pool.

    AYE! They'll need a wide street for a start with more than 20 runners.

    Methinks the track 10K will move to the roads before Paris 2024. I would have no problem if they considered this. But the...

    I think I suggested that in one of the WC threads or in Kipchoge's sub-2hr. thread. If World Athletics (formerly the IAAF) and the IOC believe that both the 5K and 10K on the track has become too...

    Interesting idea. It will certainly help to keep her up to speed when it really comes time to kick.

    As I said before, if she makes the team, she will need a big PR (definitely <49.00) if she...

    I say stick with the 400. She's probably lost her mojo in the 200, but not so much that she can't challenge for a medal in the 400 (which will definitely require her to break 49.00). Kratochvílová...

    Not everyone dares to be as bold as Bikila. I wonder if his WR in Rome 1960 is still the fastest barefoot marathon ever.

    I hope those cardboard beds are for the execs and so-called VIPs as well. No need for Japan to bust their budget to placate the so-called elite just to make a decorative or fashion statement. Save...
  8. Premier League: Does Liverpool go all the way?

    At the halfway mark (19 games), Liverpool has 55 points, 10 points more than their nearest competition, Leicester City, who have already played 21 games. And they have yet to lose.

    If none of...

    All they need to do is check the body's DNA; and if it doesn't match whatever they have in his medical record, then he's probably still hiding out in India. In NYC, at least 2 perpetrators of the...

    And what of Mu? She wasn't used to the Armory banking last indoor season (at least, when it came to distances longer than 400). She figures out how to run the turns, she could break 2:00.00. In...

    What happened to Bolton? Word is that they declared administration, but they played 15 games in League One. Did the owners sell the team?

    For comparison, how many scholarships did each sport get, 5, 10 or even 20 years ago, especially during the thick of the PED scandals?

    For the few Russians who are on the up-and-up (i.e. legit), that would quite probably prompt quite a few (sports-related) defections.

    And that will depend on how old Dr. Krasznahorkay is, and whether he can gather potential proteges to continue his work, because he and his current team might be dead before they confirm his findings.

    The Mummy (Tom Cruise version). All that hype for nothing, especially when compared to the movie saga that started in 1999. It made good money but it still lost $100 million.

    I was thinking along the lines of a stretched flat strip, or 2 connected flat strips, with a flat disc in between the strips.

    You think there's a dragon waiting for us if we dig really deep?

    I wonder if there really is a layer of diamond deep in the Earth.
