I'm not sure how you'd work out a colour scheme for that.  Although I strongly suspect that I'm nowhere near gold standard.

Chris Froome should be on there several times, during last year's TdF alone.

Very true. But it begs the question in a traffic free run how wearing headphones poses a danger. In london there are tens of thousands who run and I guess thousands with headphones but there is no ban and if a ban has some sense behind it, it would be sensible to ban them for london.  I guess the ban when it occurs is for insurance purposes and possible cost reductions.  Rare are dsq for wearing headphones which in itself is another issue.

People don't get DQ'd at VLM for dropping bottles in the middle of the road, but it still causes injuries and is a stupid thing done by thoughtless people .

But it's not banned, so it must be completely OK and risk-free?

Thankfully mine was only slight.  It came up in coversation the other day when my wife reminded me of the time she picked up the phone at work to hear "I don't want you to panic, but I'm in an ambulance".  In hindsight, I could have phrased it better.

And me.  Possibly just down the road from IS's one.

Deaf runners often have that written on the back of their vest, so that those around them know that they can't hear.  Blind runners too, for that matter.  I'd be more than happy for headphone wearers to do the same.

Oh, and Terry, you clearly don't understand the principles of risk assessment.

It could be that she has naturally has high this or that blood values and is worried that some will use that to, as you say, fit an agenda.  But why not say that?  What's 'abnormal' is open to interpretation and it's important that people don't get crucified on the basis of that alone.  But she didn't say that.

Surely she knows that there'll be an assumption that anyone refusing to release their data has something to hide?

GB Kit for Worlds in Beijing

Nayan - no, they don't, and there have been some truly shocking UK kits over the years, but this one is virtually identical to the Olympic kit except they've swapped the flag for the British Athletics logo.  Many of the athletes don't get any funding from BA, and I can see why they're p*ssed off
