I'll stop now!

Magnussen has learned alot and no doubt will go away and channel that which should make for some exciting meet ups in the future

at the risk of being wildly discredited, the track events just don't hold the same allure for me as the swimming and team events (hockey, basketball, volleyball, handball, cycling etc) ~ having said that I'll still be glued to my screens for the next week or so cheering everybody on and being the armchair critic from hell

The anti-doping lab and technology in London is significantly more advanced than anything from 20-30+ years ago, and there are now hundreds of banned substances. They also have new tests for hgh and blood doping.

If we're talking about doping, Gatlin would be my prime suspect. I don't even know why he's allowed to compete.

Um, Gatlin is American and Americans don't dope up (twice). What's wrong with you?

I am sure it was sabotage. That is the only way they could beat him.

The coincidence that his coach had a history of doping before made Gatlin an easy target.

My biggest issue in following Track is the high incidence of doping, especially by the US.

Playing a 19-17 set in the semis has a way of doing that to you.
