        Stranger things have happened...any team with 4 sub 10.30 guys deserves respect and Italy has 5 men at 10.29 this year (plus Andrew Howe if needed).

          my :roll: was to mean that I will not be wasting any tears in case they drop the baton.

          Let's just say they're not at the top of the list of my favourite athletes.

          oh and... you misquoted me (on purpose?), I had the ITA relay as a potential top8, not top3 :P

            No, a clumsy accident, sorry! But I'd still say that any team with a squad as quick as that should easily make the final and could medal in easy-to-imagine circumstances.

              it's ok, don't worry.

              ITA relay is just a pet peeve of mine. Something you can't get yourself to like, you know? :twisted:


              • #8
                No distance runners at all? :shock:

                Where are the Covas, the Antibos or the Panettas?


                • #9
                  they're long gone.

                  Italians have become too lazy to even think about picking up distance running.
                  The domestic level -in every age group- is much higher in the jumps and the sprints than in any distance greater than 800m.

                    The same place Mennea, Pavoni and Ottoz are..... :lol:

                      What about Cusma in the 800m - potential finalist?


                      • #12
                        yes, but her tactics have let her down a few times this year.

                        Potentially she could make the fnal, but she could just as well go out in the rounds.

                        We will see.
