yep i'm watching; gb suck for 1 important reason, DEDICATION we dont spend no were near as much time training as lets say china or usa, plus they have special sports and athletics schols wher ethey can train from a young age seriously and not get restricted to a silly little club like us.
plus even when joining a club outside school u are limited to a certain amount of training by law so as long as thing dont change we will never be able to reac the top.
sad truth i know!

Eh? Our athletes spend about the same amount of time training. Plenty of people have dedication. Just because China and the US lead the table doesn't necessarily mean they're more dedicated.

China and the Us have almost triple the amount of citizens that we have.. therfore having tripple the amount of Talent.. We do amazingly well considering that its countries like France, Germany, China, Austraillia, and the Us above us.. As well as the sheer size of these countries.. they have a bit more money on facilities, coaching and whole schools dedicated to Athletics. And countries like China and the Us see it as a proper sport unlike the population of the Uk.

So considering our set backs to come out within the top 10 surely shows that we have more determination and more talent.. just less of an oppurtunity.

I personally run the 100m sprint.. in well under 12seconds. If I was in America I would have been picked out and trained properly, rather than running on a public track with a small group of coaches..

I would also love to take this post to say congratulations to the British Athletes in China, they have done a great job thus far of making me proud to be English.. Thank You..

And as my ridiculous Keyboard is slowly breaking I will have to end it there ^^ Thanks for reading ^^
