PP - Surely a case of Hands up who's going to Ottawa(n)? (Anyone seen LS21's snorkel jacket?).
(Just plain) Didsbury - had an inkling you'd be right. Congrats. I presume you live a la Tom and Barbara Good as opposed to earn your keep with some form of contrived occupation? Surely even the train you take to your allotment is evil?
Dan - I thought you'd appreciate that as I typed it. Faster starter ever...shame there wasn't a 15metre race. Didsbury would be all over that as an athletic event though so it's probably brilliant.
Decathlon is like that Sports Direct jumble sale with added fromage and garlic isn't it?
but don't let that get in the way of your severe case of confirmation bias. Although on that I can partly sympathise as I reckon if I wasn't always right I might be a fellow sufferer.
As for Tory Boy (until he had to fight for his seat) vs Fatboy wtf has a sub4min race got to do with the marathon? Let's all rejoice at Ernie Obeng in the 60m dash too shall we? So are we talking about things you subjectively like or things that are objectively similar?
Agreed Wiggins is a complete bell end though. 'Oh Lance is my hero' to 'Oh Lance is a very naughty boy' yes cos no one on the inside could never have known what anyone with half a brain worked out from the outside years ago. If him and Froome aren't juiced then they're freaks cos plenty of the others at the sharp end clearly are and they have been able to dominate them. Funny how Walsh starts following Sky and Wiggins and all of a sudden that amazing form and ability to hold a peak all year disappear ...along with Dr Leinders (and all the syringes?). Just saying.
CW - pi$$ poor excuse. There's a lad at the club where my daughter swims and he can swim under 5mins for 400m. I doubt his hands are bigger than yours...hes' 10 and I'm not aware his nickname is Edward Shovelhands either. How about that lad in the Paralympics with no arms doing the IM (no not the one LD doesn't want discussed despite a plethora of evidence to the contrary.). Say you don't want to do it or haven't got the time but there is no physical barrier to entry at a reasonable level.
