And who is this with the blue and white jersey and the very orange frame up in third place.

French guy was being a wus, covering up. How's the Brit supposed to hit him if he does that? Not fair ref.

French commentators having an orgasm though. They're pretty good  at parochial.

GB got DQd for the men's 4x400m and nobody still knows why.

More detail here: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2016/aug/20/team-gb-martyn-rooney-4x400m-relay-team-disqualified-final-rio2016-athletics

Rooney was in the comm/pundiots box with Balding and Michel Johnson when the "explanation" came out; he was livid. MJ waas very diplomatic explaining the rules and procedures, and agreed that it was the tiniest infraction possible, giving no advantage to GB - or the other two team DQed, miraculously promoting ..... BRAZIL into the final!

It was quite nice to see Rooney so cross-  most athletes in that situation would have bottled up their anger and mouthed a few platitudes. Heart on sleeve stuff  :thumbsup:

Considering his sweary interview after his 400m individual heat, I bet there were some very nervous staff in the BBC studio when he was asked about that.

Masters,

May I respectfully, shiniley and obsequiously plead with you that there is a glorious and worthy separation between the Olympics and the Paralympics.

I, of course, am limited to competing in the Olympics. R2D2, being of limited [removed. ed] is the Paralympic YACF servant of choice. As he is not here, I shall look after his interests as best as I want.
