You've got to be kidding me! The auto timer failed in the men's 100. They were all given 10.0!

I was wondering about that. Even so, I'd sure like to see the photo.

Once again the Brits failed to get off a smooth 100. Start delayed more than 15 minutes whilst they tried to correct technical problems. This occurred after a false start. Outstanding field with great conditions and we'll have to wait to see what really happened. Sounded like a great race and win for Chambers.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Edwards turned his ankle and may be doubtful for Paris. Immediate swelling and carted off the track. At age 37, any injury like that can end a brilliant career.

I posit that the founder of this thread is not really a Neanderthal.

" Aaaargghhh" is clearly a Cro-Magnon construction. The correct Neanderthalish is "Aaarghghghgh," meaning, "he who worships gh".

What is the matter with those assholes?

Seriously, though, when was the last time that auto timing failed in a meet of that caliber? That just shouldn't happen these days.

We are not assholes...arseholes maybe. There was probably a Scotsman in charge of the timing.

Looks as if it failed in the mens 400 as well
