Allyson Felix

I just find this lady's attitude inspiring!

Being of simple disposition in many matters, I would have thought that if an athlete wanted to win fairly, then why not get tested voluntarily?

Hello Scrobs, Sweetheart. I never found that drugs ever enhanced my performance...the last thing you need before a race is a shot of heroin or a spliff...sensible girl.

And to be SEEN to be clean.

I'd want to be acknowledged for my natural, talent driven performance ...

... I'm just not very good is all.

I'm a terrible sprinter. I would have come last in the school's Dad's race a couple of years back had the guy in front of me not slipped on the bottoms of his Chav tracksuit and fallen on to his front. He dragged his bottoms and pants down to his knees baring his huge builder's arse before the whole school.

NOT how he wanted his day to go.

Daisers - Sorry my Beautiful, but what do you you mean by check list? I know where you are...all the time...even in the dark... ;0)

Lilsters - Sadly, I never tried any of them for several reasons: - 1) My Dad would have killed me.
2) I couldn't afford things like that.
3) I was such a protected idiot, that these things used to scare me - and most of my chums - and I kept well awy! Sad in some respects, but all we used to do was smoke like chimneys, drink huge amounts of beer, generally misbehave in private, and eventually go home - possibly still pissed...
4)Met a gorgeous Mrs S...

Elecs - Just remember that tracksuit bottoms are the best relief from bad bouts of squitters...
