    The British Olympic dudes want records of his recent injury. He's pissed off that they asked publicly for them though, making a bit of a scene of it.

    Unless you're on bout something else to do with him?

    It's probably that. BBC just shown an interview with that Dutch bloke (head of UK athletics), and he's on about not having spoken to him within a week, and he's not at the training camp.

    What's everyone's favorite event to watch? I like the 100m's (obviously) But I also enjoy the Javelin and shotput and the ones like that, and the high jump, that's always quite exciting

    In athletics, the sprint events are good to watch. To be honest I'll watch near enough anything in the Olympics apart from team sports like football and hockey etc, I don't think they should be in the Olympics.

    I still feel a bit weird that football is in the olympics, I mean, they've got the world cup and stuff, for most other sports, the Olympics is the main competition.

    Think we're going to try and nick 3rd from Australia in the medal table. Don't think we'll do it though.

    China put in a ton of money into their sports when they got the bid and really went all out, doubt GB did the same but like i said the home nation always gets a boost.
