But it is quite funny when they think they've won, slow down, and somebody overtakes them.

I am not, however, the guy who put the phone into homes.
That'll be British Telecom you're thinking of.

Why did the Russians let my elderly aunt Doris design their kits?

The Germans have a lady diver called Katja Dieckow.
Pronounced Cutyour Dickoff.
It's true.

This a bloody strange bike race. Following some old bloke on an electric bike.

The keirin is great! The derny bike gets all the riders up to a high speed and keeps them all together so they can have a fantastic sprint.

Without the motorbike they wouldn't finish together and the race wouldn't be anything like as exciting.

I can't be the only one that hopes Phillip Sidowu (that's what it sounds like!) falls flat on his egotistical effin' face ?

Absolutely. They must have invested absolutely every inch of themselves in winning gold. I can't imagine how screwed up they must be.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/olympics/19126033 this is pretty cool.
Although he SLOWS DOWN at the end. I'm sure they do it just to piss me off.

Pistorius was very nearly overtaken because he slowed down. I really don't get why the slow down, it's not like there's a brick wall or a cliff at the finish line.

Ooh, that would be a cool sport.

Come on you two - these are qualifying heats. He needed to finish in the top three to qualify. Why would you bust a nut to a win qualifying heat?

He slowed down to keep something back for the final.

Then I would guess they slow down as there is no advantage to be gained by not doing so and it reduces oxygen debt and speeds up recovery and acid catabolisation and all that shit.
