  • Matt Shirvington way overated

    Why does this guy get so much hype? Is it because he's white? He'll be lucky to make it out of the prelims in Athens.

      not hatin' , but think about it -- if Matt were black and running @ 10.3 on average, would anyone care?

          He competes in OZ.

          It's January.

          The rest of the world is not competing.

              Does anyone care now ??? Apart from the Aussies, I doubt there are many people who get excited by him.

                I actually agree with Powell. I rarely hear Shirvington's name mentioned. I think the original poster's contention that he gets "so much hype" might be a bit of an exaggeration.

                  This guy gets mad press down under, while Patrick Johnson gets nothing! Shirvington probably can't even break 21.0 for 200.

                    If we're talking of overrated white sprinters, Macrozonaris would be a better example than Shirvington... Both guys have shown they've got talent, but so far neither has made it big time.

                      Shirvo is a babe-magnet, plain and simple.

                        I disagree. The Greek has run 19.85 and has won the big meets. Unless there are some doping issues I haven't heard about, this guy deserves mad props.

                          I believe we're not talking about the same person...

                              Garry, does it take one to know one ?
