There was a very suspicious 10000 metres race in athletics today, a world record by 14 seconds breaking what was itself, a very dubious record. The general reaction is very skeptical. It was the individuals second time only running the distance. Situations such as this need thorough investigation.

Blah Blah

If they thoroughly investigated track and field there would be no competitors left in my opinion.

Ger, the speed went deep, too… with several national records and high level pdf personal best times… people are asking ‘what gives with this track’. No comment on that score from me: no idea 🙂


Shiny suits athletics style?


the women 10,000 meters race is just nuts.

If you think Ledecky’s 8:04 is super extraordinary, then you’d better believe that Almaz Ayana’s 29:17 is universe apart.

The other women who got lapped TWICE by Ayana were just in disbelief.

It’s breathtaking watching it though, and the two british official broadcast commentators were running out of superlatives.


I’m a big swimming fan (an understatement) and would like to see swimming performances recognised, but imo, Ayana’s run is the performance of the Games, of all sports.
That’s how incredible it was.
