hey Simon, just listened to an interview with Bubka and he said that Japanese scientists have analysed a couple of his clearances and came to the conclusion that if they were measured, they would have been around 6.27! not sure how they did it but considering no-one has got near 6.15 since, they definately wouldnt get near 6.27!
Keeping in spirit with the title of the thread - great result for Great Britain with Mo Farah winning the 10 000m in a great race... 2nd was training partner Galen Rupp from the United States... coach Alberto Salazar must be one happy guy. Bronze medallist was Tariku Bekele ahead of his legendary brother Kenenisa Bekele.
David Rudisha is such a class athlete... but didn't quite expect what eventuated in the Olympic final... a world record (1:40.91) & one of the (if not the) greatest 800m races of all time - the whole field was fast, which is fairly rare for an Olympic race.
One world record, next an African record, National & World Junior record for Botswana, another national record (Ethiopia), 4 personal bests & another season best. 1:42.82 only got you 4th and 1:43:77 last!!
Here is the video. Not sure how long it's going to last as the IOC have already taken down one of the Olympic 800m videos...
Would have to be one of the most gifted athletes on the track... he is such an incredible mover - powerful with great technique!
Now that the 2012 London Olympics are all over, I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed watching this event over the past two weeks. I think that the UK has done a marvelous job over the past few weeks in hosting this world class event and the 2012 London Olympics is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure to watch. All those who helped organize and make the London Olympics run so smoothly should all be proud of the job they did. Good job London!!
In addition, it was great seeing all the venues on TV including the many sites in London that my wife and I have had the pleasure to visit on numerous occasions. Seeing all these historic places again just makes us want to go back again to visit this lovely city.
And finally, congratulations to all the athletes for all their hard work that ensured true world class athletic competitions. It was an awesome show of strength, grace, speed, endurance, skill and emotion. I loved it!
I especially loved this German discus athlete, Robert Harting, who won the gold and then ripped his top off....Hulk style.....wish I could do that...
