Don't get this discussion. She clearly tripped. Just look at the footage. And afterwards she had no chance getting back into speed. Ever tried running with lactic acid up to your ears?sniper said:You haven't had or seen many cramps in your life then. She didnt grab her leg to splint it. Nor any kind of stretching post finish as you would do for cramp.
Also, if it was a cramp why did she say she tripped.
She might have to do that in the future you mean.DanielSong39 said:Ironically, Semenya is required to take performance diminishing drugs in order to compete...
"She" is not. Hasn't been for a couple years. Has been killing it again since.DanielSong39 said:Ironically, Semenya is required to take performance diminishing drugs in order to compete...
What bunch of others? I don't think two makes bunch :razz:sniper said:To be fair, it looked dodgy not just to bwichygroes, but also to a bunch of others.Kokoso said:She was just out of power, that's it. Because of that she made wrong step. Have you never seen it before? Nothing odd about that. I would even say nice, exemplar case. Basically stopped her from running? Have we even seen same race? She ran to the finish line. Not so fast as before, but ran.Bwlch y Groes said:Why would it be? As the BBC pundits pointed out, if it was a serious injury she'd have been on the floor in agony. She got some mild treatment after I posted that but nothing so obvious that would basically stop her from running. It didn't look like an obvious stumble. It's really odd - I've never seen anything like that before. Weird results all over the shop in this World ChampionshipsKokoso said:
On twitter somebody just noticed that in her interview last night, she said it was "just a trip".
It didn't look like a trip to me. It looked more like a badly faked cramp or something.
Yeah, I liked that writers style. The entire article is filled with little goodies like that...The Hitch said:
The damage wrought by the norovirus has added to the impression that these are the World Championships from Hell.
Perhaps Germany need the British (Australian) model of lottery and government funding?BullsFan22 said:
The Anglo-Saxon wet dream is that only athletes from the UK and some British Commonwealth countries win medals. If others do win, that proves that track and field still has a doping problem.BullsFan22 said:
Cycling is more ridiculous because of motorized doping. Watching the big championships in track & field is more entertaining for me than the majority of cycling races.buckle said:The Anglo-Saxon wet dream is that only athletes from the UK and some British Commonwealth countries win medals.

Why anyone would pay good money to watch this crap is beyond me? At least cycling is free. I suspect that the German people have moved on in respect of track and field i.e. a growing consciousness that it is ridiculous.

Well, of course I have knowledge about Kreuziger's case. My answer was related to you sayind "Kreuziger beat the BSP". But he did not beat the BSP. I have to say I have a problem not to percieve your post as trolling, you'd even deserve some harsh words.yaco said:You post in this part of the forum yet you have no knowledge of one of the most significant doping cases in the lastKokoso said:
ten years - UCI and WADA dropped their BSP case against Kreuziger in May 2015 - And it was reported widely on Cycling News.
I've always had my doubts about the accuracy of the Biological Passport Program.
Well, I don't read it here all the time and I'm forgetting where I've reacted so I search it and answer at once. T think that basically characterizes my attitude to this forum. I am not here every day. Maybe someone who's here all the time can't understand this attitude, I don't know.Brullnux said:Wow, picking up posts from three months ago to defend some Czechs.
