    There's no way you can do all of those simultaneously at uni level at Oxford. Boat race and varsity football are on the same day for a start....

    British athletics is a bloody disgrace. Devonish the only one getting into a final finishing last. Fckuing useless. Johnson is spot on in his analysis imo. We couldnt get much worse.

    Out of these racket sports, which would you say is the most difficult? Put them in order if you can.
    If you can't think....imagine the best in the world at each one in front of you....who would you have the most respect for?

    I would say:

    Tennis
    Badminton
    Table Tennis
    Squash

    Tennis, Squash, Badminton and then Table Tennis.

    The thing is they're hard in there own way but i think TT loses as the others requires a whole load more fitness. Also tennis has alot of exposure so guys have to 'keep their cool' in the press and all. Much more so than squash... But i play squash so i know how physically demanding it is. I also play Badminton and although it's a faster game than squash i think squash is harder.

    When you are playing best of five sets (squash) against a good opponent its more tiring than the others in my opinion. Perhaps not as much strength needed as tennis, but just as much concentration, technique and stategy, if not sometimes more. Very close with tennis, but the physical demands tops it for me.

    In badminton you need a lot less strength too play, its more tehcnique and reaction based. Techniqually very demanding, but overall not as much all round as tennis and squash in my opinion.

    Table tennis is very easy to play at a low standard, the pros have remarkable reactions and technique, just like badminton - although I agree with the above poster that it loses out on the amount of fitness you need.

    Tennis, Badminton, Squash and Table Tennis. Both Badminton and Squash when played at a high standard are tiring, especially in singles. TT is probably more of a game than a sport, even tho they do play it at the olympics.

    thats just in the male sprints.

    we had an 18 year old make the final of the mens 400m and finish 5th (who is going to move up to 800m and will be devestating with that speed), a 20 year old (who is VERY fine) finished 3rd in the Heptathlon and has great potetnial for the future.

    basically Harry Aikines Aryeetey, Craig Pickering and Alex Nelson should have been takin to the Commies insted of our sprinters as they are VERY good junior athletes and this would have given them the good experience they need to bring them through the senior ranks and i bet any money they would have competed better than the sprinters we did send.

    also in the middle distance we had a steeplechaser finish in 5th and 7th i think with a 20 year old finish in 9th place which is very good as this event was dominated by the Kenyans who took a clean sweep and a very promising performance from Luke Gunn (the 20 year old) for his first (of many hopeffully) Major Senior Championships.

    we also have 2 male's in the 1500m final, of the home nations in the womens 1500m final we had 3 in the top 4.


    some things are going ok and pretty well in GB athletics but other things are appauling UKA need 2 sort it out and QUICK!!!
