    How awesome is Jelimo? That 800m world record is hers for the taking.

    Did Vlasic share the jackpot too? According to a site I'm looking at, her and two others cleared 2m but it also has her down in 2nd!

    So... *ahem*.. I suppose we'll be discussing personal undertakings as well as the goings on of the world-class stuff.

    I'm very nondescript in my personal preferences, my first love is cross country (my power of 10 says I did 14 XC races this winter!) but you can't do it in the summer. Probably like any road race from 5k-half marathon and track 800-5000m.

    Think Jessica Ennis will be hard pressed to win Olympic gold as she has Chernova and Dobrynska both outdoing her in major championships recently, but maybe the home advantage will give her the edge. Can't really call it. Hoping Phillips Idowu finally wins his gold as well but again, it will be difficult.

    Mhmm.

    I'm waiting for the season to start at my school, hopefully be doing a few 800s, Triple and High Jumps at senior athletics fixtures. Mind you I'm not that great

    Ah I'd love to see Ennis do it on home turf; I think she deals with pressure well when she's got home supporters behind her - take her B'ham performance. I agree though, will be tough with Dobrynska on the rise and Chernova wanting revenge. Hopefully Ennis will have the drive and do her best on her better events and pull back up her weaker ones.

    Poor Idowu last year! I have no clue who will come and usurp him this year, but a bad feeling that it will happen just as he thinks he's got the gold in the bag. :/ I hope we get an 18m plus jump this season!

    Really want to see Ashton Eaton do something wonderful in the decathlon - that guy is dam talented.

    I wonder how Gay's recovery is going from the surgery he had..really wanna see him back challenging Bolt (along with young speedster Blake!).

    Anyone see Jelimo's comeback in Istanbul? Exciting!
