Thanks for the mention todday  :p, will try and run with someone I find on the track, he may not be training just let him warm up and then run, maybe he will let me run once with him and then he will get back to his business lol, but alot of the times it is empty.

As for the 200m final, I was suprised bolt was the only one who ran sub 20, and noone else, must be what todday was talking about how the other people in the race affects our race in someway. but i feel gutted for gemili, who was that close to winning a medal for gb in the 200m. But congrats to letmaitre.
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up

Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm

Man... Gemili and Martina... I am usually pretty competitive but in this case I was just like damn can we give them both a medal??

Yeah you should be able to find track people to run with... For the most part if you ask a sprinter if you can run with him and you don't ask too many questions most won't mind - just yourself out there...

Japan took Silver in the Mens 4x100m  :o
I didn't see them beating the USA or Canada, but it was an impressive effort. Jamaica won the Gold so no shocks there.

Edit- The USA came 3rd but they have now been DQ'd.

Wat the fuk  :pissed: :rant:, I cannot reiterate how shocking it was to witness this I really feel for this guy. The final gold medal match in the karioki (dont hate me for the spelling) in taekwondo lutallo muhammad vs cisse, lutallo was in the lead and was going to win the gold medal until 1 second left of the entire match, cisse makes a kick to the head because muhammad went for the attack also instead of defending and gets kicked in the head, which is 3 points and cisse wins the gold. om fukin days. sorry for the profanity but it was insanely close and you could see how distraught lutallo was in his interview. 1 SECOND LEFT. All he had to do was defend and then a kick comes you dont see coming and bang finished.

The relays went as always, US got disqualified as they sometimes usually mess up somewhere. But glad powell got to run and win gold too, GB not that good especially they had lane 1, so they have tighter turns.

also a wave of robberies in boxing has been occurring, it just follows the sport everywhere.

Also Todday, I think you mean lemaitre and gemili, I also think they both deserve a medal.

but mostly taken back by the taekwondo, 1 sec left lol, anything can change. But he made history still but doesnt take the fact away he was 1 sec away from being olympic champion.  :uhhhfacepalm:

good boxing match between stevens and lopez, lopez just looked more slick and a better boxer, I had a feeling the cubans would be racking up a lot of the boxing gold medals.

regarding your other post.. i've been "bitten by robberies" so much watching olympic boxing, that maybe that's why i'm not as excited to see it, as I am with other events. I really didn't watch too many fights.. I heard there were plenty of really bad robberies though. Just watching one is enough.. they really need to fix this crap, ESPECIALLY in the olympics because most of these dudes aren't making any money.

the 5k final was NUTS.. Farah gets gold as expected. Chelimo gets silver, but then live on TV as they are interviewing him, they tell him he's been DQ'd.. he was like WTF.. then Lagat, who finished 6th, jumps to 3rd because 2 other runners DQ'd.. finally, Chelimo is reinstated as 2nd, and Lagat gets 4th.

crazy chain of events.



biggest shock was Centrowitz winning gold in 1500m.. damn.

I wonder if Alberto Salazar is going to get even more athletes now.. Farah repeat 10k/5k gold, and Centrowitz 1500m gold.. and Rupp 10k silver 4 years ago. I imagine he had some others too, not sure though.
