Now he runs in the Paralympics and loses He ran the race .22 seconds slower than he had in his qualifying heat and perhaps he was a tad over confident for the final. No reason to be a sore loser and have a hissy fit. Perhaps a rush of blood to the head in the heat of the moment but unacceptable behaviour.
This is an interesting article by Dr Ross Tucker in Runner's World about the advantage of running with blades.
What about the poor athletes who cannot afford the $3000 these blades cost. To take things even a bit further, won't it be a sad day when we have an athlete with only one leg choosing to have the other leg amputated as well to enable him to compete with high tech blades in the Olympics and the Paralympics. Money does strange things to sport. Technology has ruined Formula One motor racing and it is all about which car you drive, not your skill as a driver.
Then seeing as though I am on my proverbial soap box, back to the Lance Armstrong saga. Take a look at this article I read today. I rest my case. Nothing more than a philandering cheat who rides a bicycle. Sheryl Crowe also has her story to tell. Interesting times.
You may well look grumpy!!
