  • British stiff upper lip

    from the UK - excerpt from the Athletics Weekly site

    Would we miss the Americans?

    "WITH exactly 100 days to go before the opening of the Olympic Games, bombs exploded in Athens sending visceral shivers of apprehension through the members of the International Olympic Committee. Memories are being painfully aroused of Munich in 1972 when the Black September terrorist group broke into the Olympic Village and held hostage and then killed members of the Israeli team. It may be those memories that prompted Mark Spitz, winner of seven Olympic swimming gold medals at those same Games, to speculate that the USA may not be in Athens because of the terrorist threat. The fact is that though it would be sad if an American team did not compete, it certainly would not be calamitous."


    Good show, blokes.

        Easy on the caps. I might agree with part of what you are saying but it is extremely difficult to tell.
