As I understand it you are obliged to win the race???
The rules state
'any runner sporting the number 1 is obliged to at least try to win the race - and if they do not succeed finish in the top 3 - any athlete failing to do so will be subjected to a drug test and may sunsequently be banned for a period of mot less than 2 years and will not be allowed to compete at the 2012 (or any other Olympics or Commonwealth Games) unless successfully suing the British Olympic Assoication'
I must admit I'm tempted to stand at the front for the photo opportunity and then make way for everyone as they go past. I haven't got a snowball's chance in hell of coming in the top 3.
Maybe you are the only runner ?!
Guaranteed top 3 finish - enjoy the moment , it is unlikely to come again (statistically )
Either you were the most eager entrant on the planet
Or your name is Aaaba Aaaabe
Keep us posted.......
........ no pressure.......
He's a girl?
You are a winner, Coops.
