i was like 7 months old during Seoul, i don't think i was calming anything

He was billed as a Canadian sprinting star while he'd won gold, and when he was found out, he was billed as a Jamaican drug cheat. Hypocrisy if you ask me.

Exactly, If Ben Johnson hadn’t have tested positive all of Canada would be like “Oh, look at us, we have a black, immigrant gold medallist, blah blah blah we are sooo multicultural, blah blah blah he is a true Canadian, blah blah blah maple leaf maple leaf maple leaf.

Anyway, France won with T&T finishing second....

Ben Johnson, was beauty in motion; he was just unfortunate and got caught, while very likely half of the other sprinters that lined up with him in the final of the 100 meters didn't.

Carl Lewis was likely one of them

FloJo was also a big cheat, whose world records seem astonishing, even in todays steroid tainted athletics records.

Steroids should just be made legal in athletics as everyone is doing them! ???  :unclesam:

Times are irrelevant now. Championship pedigree, however, is very relevant. Britain and Jamaica have it.

LOLOLOLOL!!!!

Yet France wins and Trinidad won Silver.... so much for PEDIGREE! LOLOL  At least you grouped Britain and Jamaica together, you got that right just 3rd and 4th was the appropriate placings.  Just admit you got owned on this one :)

Got owned?? What in the name of goodness knows what does that mean?

As I said earlier, France took a big gamble by putting their two quickest runners on the first two legs. It paid off handsomely for them, so all credit to them for that.

As for us, I could make comments along the lines of 'we missed Darren Campbell on the second leg' or our sprinters aren't at their best, but I'm fed up of an excuse mentality that seems to be creeping into British athletics and I'm pleased to see that the new performance director, Dave Collins, seems to be talking tough now.

The best side won on the night, but I'd like to think revenge would be ours in Gothenburg next year.

Why does Radcliffe constantly moves her head while she runs? I watch the marathon on French TV and the commentators were all wondering... :D

I'm happy that the Bahamas 4x400 relay team gets silver. I love this country and the people from there are so friendly...As the song says "it's better in Bahamas ...etc" :laugh:

7 medals for France 2 gold medals...Not bad :)  But I'm so disappointed about Canada I thought Perdita could bring a gold medal home but she didnt. 1 medal only... :(  THey'll probably do better at Torino  :;):
