  • Haiti to make Olympic bid

    Okay, not really: http://www.theonion.com/content/news/ha ... =a-section
    "Run fast and keep turning left."

    Of course, as is always the case with jokes made by people who don't really know anything about a sport, there's a glaring error here: What the heck is a "decathlon route" (see graphic)? Maybe they were thinking marathon.

      Ya gotta admit, those Onion writers turn a clever phrase (and humorous, if it is not aimed at you.)

        On the back of calls from several stalwarts of the TFN Message Board, the GAAC (Galactic Association of Athletics Corporations) announced on April 1, 2179 that the 10th event of the decathlon would now be a 100km race walk (it was argued that this would remedy the perceived bias towards those only possessing speed, a leap, skill and brute strength)... hence the route marked on the Port- au-Prince map...

          Obviously the 100k racewalk should be the first event.
