    Kilty seems pretty upset. Most likely his last chance at an Olympic medal. The one article by the Mirror shows the four athletes 'celebrating' with their silver medals and CJ is the only one not smiling. (But I don't think he ever smiles)

    At least they didn't lose a Gold medal.
    Considering Kilty's classic Brit tough-as-nails personality his reaction doesn't shock me. He recently became a dad and getting an Olympic medal for his son to see must've meant the world. To be stripped of that is tough.

    Surprised it took so long. I actually thought they had already been stripped since the news about CJ came out right after the Games.

    Tinker was going to be there, it was bringing in Larry Black to take his place.
    I saw Gerald Tinker play football at Coral Gables High. It was really hysterical. They'd throw him a sideline pass and he'd head sideways toward the opposite sideline, then back again, advancing toward the goal line not many yards at a time. He was so much faster and more athletic than the opposition he knew he could get away with it. They'd be collapsing and giving up one at a time.

    uh guys,, we've somehow gotten miles away from the topic of this thread... Nesta Carter didn't belong in it in the first place

    Robinson finished 2nd in the trials and was given the same time as Hart, so I always assumed there was some politics involved in putting Tinker, the 4th place finisher, on the team instead.

    How about....

    Gerald Tinker...Robert Taylor...Eddie Hart...Rey Robinson

    I know you know your stuff. Seems like an odd one to draw a blank on,considering he was the first, and still the only, Chinese male Olympic T&F gold medalist.
    Thanks, for some reason I just completely skipped over 2004 as a whole (which also saw Xing Huina win 10000m gold)

    That medal goes down the drain. Down to 5 for the UK.

    First time I've seen CG's video and I cringed thru the whole thing. He does ultimately take responsibility for not driving through the finish and not leaning, but the whole thing makes me question the USA's commitment to the 4x1. There are many HS teams that pass better and know how to finish a leg. This is completely unsat.
