  • Daley Thompson joins UKA - "GB athletes too soft"

    From front page http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/athletics/5013186.stm

    Daley Thompson accused Britain's athletes of "having it too easy"

    Other quotes include:
    • "I trained three times on Christmas Day every year for 15 years.

      "Our athletes get it way too easy, but it is something (UK Athletics chief) Dave Collins is trying to put right."

      "Our athletes don't have that kind of attitude. It's a cultural problem and it's not only us who suffer from it, but all western countries."

      "It's taken a long time for me to get involved and it's the first time someone like me has been part of UK Athletics."

    I'm not quite sure what he means by the last quote since i thought they had a lot of former star athletes involved in UKA.
