    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Speaking of Roberts, I can't believe Robert Fazekas is back. Ugh. Some people have no shame.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%B3bert_Fazekas

    He finished first in the 2004 Summer Olympics,[1] but was later disqualified for failing to provide a drug sample, and the gold medal was awarded to Virgilijus Alekna. Fazekas ranks fifth in all-time longest discus throw distances with a personal best of 71.70m.[2]
    Fazekas provided only 25 millilitres of urine (50 ml short of the minimum amount required), stating he was "in an unstable psychological state and feeling unwell". Observers from the International Olympic Committee warned that this would constitute a doping infraction and advised that he could go with them to the clinic at the Olympic Village, where he could provide a further sample. Fazekas refused the offer. A delegation in his defence stated that he was a deeply religious person who frequently had difficulty producing a sample when under observation. The IOC rejected this and disqualified him from the Olympics.[3]

    Queen Harrison is one of 23 children. Her poor mother's flaps.

    Ennis is behind Fountain after 2 events., and she has a relatively low lead over Chernova.

    I don't think it's that much of a surprise. Both Fountain and Chernova were always going to be strong contenders. If Ennis is behind after the shot and the 200m then she's in real trouble.

    Kaliese Spencer. Also Melaine Walker (Olympic and reigning world champ), Lashinda Demus and Zuzana Hejnova. And maybe Queen Harrison (bless her mother's flaps) and Perri Shakes-Drayton.

    Ennis is superb 100 m hurdler and high jumper, so i was expecting a better performance by her. Yes, Fountain is great athlete and I expected her to be close second. However Chernova usually a very good day2 performer, excellent Long jump and Javelin (55 m at her best), she usually finishes around 10th on day 1 and climbs her way up on day 2. So if Chernova is close to Ennis, she can be take it all tomorrow, provided Chernova has no melt down on day 2.

    I think what we're seeing from Ennis is the pressure of expectation pure and simple. She is trying to become the first British woman to defend a global athletics title and she's the postergirl of London 2012. I mean her face is on the opening credits to News at Ten every single night over here. That has to take its toll and how often have we seen great athletes struggle to defend titles in all sports? Perhaps coming in 2nd or 3rd here would alleviate some of that pressure or perhaps she'll rise to the occasion and pull it out of the bag. We shall see

    I don't think it'd do Ennis any harm at all to NOT win here.

    So the main protagonists are all through to 110m hurdles final. And two Brits as well. Not that surprised by Andy Turner, but at Sharman making it.

    PB for Ennis in the shot put two metres ahead of Hideous Fountain.

    Murofushi looks hotter every year.

    Shelly-Ann Fraser always looks SO happy. Veronica Campbell is my fave tho.

    How typical in Japan is the build of Koji Murofushi?

    *fingers cross* Valerie Adams wins tonight. And please Jamaica win 100m final tonight as well.

    Not very. His mother is Romanian and a former javelin thrower. His father was a former Japanese hammer champion.

    His middle name in Alexander.

    Jeter looks good. The womens 100 final promises to be rather more exciting than the mens actual race ended up being.
