  • Sprinters Drifting Off

    Well now this makes sense. I always wondered why the sprinters use to drift off to sleep in our team meetings. Now I realize it was because most of them have narcalapsy (sp?). Thus all the positive tests for the stimulants.

    (Old distance runer getting in at least one last dig at my sprinter friends)

      Not when a lot of the world's fastest are able to conveniently avoid out of season testing by being unavailable in 'remote' areas of E. Africa. Sure.

        Right back at ya:

        "SUDDENLY it has become so clear. The US has failed to consistently produce competitive long-distance runners because, as a nation, its athletes cannot remain awake long enough to run more than one lap of an oval."

          Your statement conveniently ignores the fact that a decade ago 5-time World cross champ (and Olympic 5K champ) John Ngugi was banned after the IAAF's Flying Squad showed up unannounced at his door and after a language barrier problem he refused to be tested.
