The Athletics has started in Rio. The big PEDs related news story surrounds Ethiopia’s Almaz Ayana who won gold in the women’s 10,000m, and smashed the world record by 14 seconds.
The previous world record was set in 1993 and is a confirmed dirty record. She beat that by 14 seconds and didn’t exactly collapse at the finishing line. Oh and the 2nd half of her run would have been an Olympic record at 5,000m. So she ran 5,000m quicker than anyone else… after already running 5,000m!
Ok people move along now, nothing to see here…
Meanwhile Usain Bolt got a usual bad start and then coasted to victory, running 10:07 in his 100m heat. So now’s a good time to post a link to a previous post where I casted aspersions over the the golden boy of Athletics.
