  1. Off topic MOD . I am crying racism here LOL. Jim jones
  2. Except for a Scottish Nut case who has his nose in the business of a games that does not concern the Children of the Sheep. Athlete Baw Haw Haw Haw Haw . The only workout he does is running his mouth about things he is complete ignorant to IE what is an IAAF class one certified facility and how a stadium gets that stamp from the IAAF. Jim jones
  3. Back to the topic Child of the Sheep LOL Jim jones
  4. you never get the point . no one goes out that says Gee I am going to risk putting an athlete in a situation that is rare in the the course of his or her's career . that is the bottom line . Yeah you can have some record broke or you can have Ron Clarke in the process . Unless your athlete has run mountain races or long durations which would not be the case of a sprinter then they would pass on voting to put a sprinter in that position . Jamaica , Trinidad and Tobago, Cuba , St Kitts and other Caribbean Nations would vote for a Toronto or Lima simply on the basis of avoiding bogota. Jim jo
  5. It is hard adapt to altitude that quickly especially if you are from a Caribbean Island living at sea level most of your life. Broken Records at the pan am games might be restricted to Pan Am Games Records which are generally far off the mark of World Records. The competition is generally not there as American's send a C team of Athletes and many teams send B grade competitors who are young and in development. You are not going to have a Usian Bolt running at altitude in Bogota or even any of the Semi finalists of the 2012 olympics or the 2016 olympics for the Americas. Those people qualify at
  6. Ron Clarke a very good high ranking middle distance runner from Australia nearly died running at altitude in Mexico city 68' . no major problems ? Gee i think nearly killing a man is a major problem. Jim jones
  7. Man Again you have half a clue . Sprinters at high altitude you don't have much of an effect on them as durations are short for their events but who would want to risk a career on what the unknown is for each individual. The Jamiacans are unlikely to say . Hey lets travel 6000 miles to live in an athletes village a mile high in mid european Athletics Season risking our pay checks on the Pro Circuit in Europe or even our entire careers . We are talking sprinters who generally can command appearance and endorsement fees into the 100's of thousands and millions . Lima or Toronto would get those v
  8. Well apparently the screaming infant knows Capitalization and upper case letters . Do you know what I actually mean by Children of the sheep ? There is not defining it because I invented the term . Jim jones
  9. So where you do think a federation or the athletes should go on Delhi 2010? The Child of the Sheep would say oh it should not have been awarded to anyone without pale white skin but the fact remains it has been awarded simply because you cannot deny the Largest Democracy in the World the Games in 2010 while China was awarded the only games that really amount to anything two years prior being the 2008 SOG's . The Federation would look totally out of touch with the rest of the world including the Only Games that matter celebrating the youth of the world VS the festival that celebrates our commo
  10. Racism against the UK ? Gosh you are the people who cornered the market on racism IE the BNP. Jim Jones
  11. Well take care of your own backyard and staging on the Commonwealth Games afterall the last time Rob Maxwell and a Japanese mobster were the White Knights Edinburgh had to go to trying to salvage those games . Jim jones
  12. Well hey considering you call me a racist bigot when it is your country who aired a BNP leader the other night on the BBC with people in violent protest outside the Studio's trying to suppress freedom of expression of a Neo Nazi I take that comment with a grain of salt. How long has it been since the Campbells Slaughtered the MacDonalds in Glencoe and yet the Mac Donalds still hold a grunge more then 3 centuries later ? Jim Jones
  13. Yeah the opinion of Manchester People really holds water . What major event did they ever host in the recent past ? THe 30th anniversary of Coronation Street ? If you go by the schedule for Test events posted for New Delhi 2010 and what happened in that Story you would be looking at the athletics portion of the Games having the Test Event in New Delhi staged 4 months before the opening compared to 5 weeks before the opening. Whether New Delhi actually carries through on that schedule we will see but 5 weeks before the games the venue with the vast amount of events does not spell exemplary st
  14. well hey maybe they are following in the Path of Manchester who threw together those Fantastic Games in your opinion when the Turth was the following MANCHESTER, June 16 2002 AAP - Manchester's new Commonwealth Games stadium passed its first test this weekend as the English athletics trials went off smoothly. There were minor hitches as volunteers and the public struggled to find their way around the unfamiliar 38,000-seat stadium, built with STG135 million ($A387.15 million) of lottery money. Several athletes, including Australian pole vaulting couple Victor Chistiakov and Tatiana Grigor
