Yes.

Anyway, that's enough trolling for today.

Yeah. :lol:

Can't wait for tonight's final. The women's final looks like it'll be spectacular too, five or six there well capable of running under 11 seconds.

Bolt false-starts! :o

Anyway, I'm gonna ignore the complete lack of interest and go ahead and post some pictures of Jess Ennis.

Like Cram said I think, when he relaxes up it looks like he's not trying but he doesn't really lose that much speed.


It was good to see Powell giving it a bit in front of the camera, it's a shame how he tenses up when it really matters. Although I don't think he can beat Bolt he's the only one I can see getting close when running at his best.

Yeah, I like Powell. Never seems to be able to deliver when it really matters though.

I was so pleased for him when he got to finish off the 4x100 WR effort in Beijing.

Eh? Tyson Gay at his best is definitely one of only two people to beat Bolt and even that is dependant on Bolt having a bad day.
