Well George, I guess nobody wants to discuss the topic. Anyway, only 5 days left and yes I will be following the events from the 15th to the 23rd. Mens Marathon will be held on the 22nd and Womens ...
lvrunner ching. It is good to finally find someone here who is interested in the World T&F. I think one of the possible reasons for the lack of interests here is that few, if any, Chinese are expected to have a chance to medal.
The best chance will rest on the shoulders of Zhou Chun Xiu and Chang Wen Xiu, the 2 Xiu's. After that, the other Chinese athletes may not even have a chance to reach the finals. I suppose there may be some HK athletes who are eligible to run, jump or throw in the first round. Unfortunately, I don't think any distance runners from HK have met even the B standards to participate in the races. I hope I am wrong here.
But nevertheless, I think it will be a very exciting competition, seeing Bekele against Lagat in the 5k, Defar vs. Dibaba in the women 5k. This is just like seeing Brazil against Argentina in the World Cup. It will be exciting!
