Oh I completely agree don’t get me wrong. The general lack of appreciation for them from the general public always amazes me.

Trouble is that joe public, having rarely taken a rushed step,has no yardstick. I never appreciated just how extraordinary our better athletes are until I started doing a bit of track training in my thirties. The average person would look at anything between a 400 and a 10000m ttime , and it would mean nothing to them. .

I had no interest or appreciation for track and field really until I went and saw a couple of meets at the Olympics in Beijing. The speed the middle distance lads went at was unreal. More impressive for me than the likes of Bolt.

Tackled from behind by an Italian and eliminated.

On a side note, Jessie Barr is a fine-looking woman.
