I notice with a great deal of contempt and disgust the hypocrisy of GH the moderator. He is always quick to ban people or give a stern warning whenever remarks are made about questionable American athletes and drugs but I guess he has a double standard if its Jamaican athlete whose reputation and legacy is been attacked. SMH


I think when people throw round names with no evidence he is consistent in shutting down the topics. Context can mean a lot, I stuck pretty much to the facts of Ottey's suspicious evidence, I've not outright stated anybody is a drug cheat there. However I do think GH, like all of us have biases. He doesn't seem to get precious about US track and field athletes but it only natural, like mumps and flumpys unnatural and double standard defensiveness and praise for Ottey while they routinely throw quite unsubstantiated accusations around.

I'm British and while I think our brilliant cycling team is clean, I do find that where they may get criticism for not being transparent and dominating perhaps the dirtiest sport in the world a lot of British cycling fans are almost not willing to discuss in any way that UK Cycling/Team Sky could possibly be doping or deserve criticism for making themselves look dodgy by for one example blatently not being honest and being evasive about the employment of a certain dodgy doctor they have recently released. Likewise US athletes get bitchy when you point out how easily american athletes excuses are accepted for light bans. To non-americans the likes of Vessey, Carl Lewis etc stinks to high heaven, to an american it looks like a mistake anybody could make and yet would be livid if Russian athletes where shown the same leniency. It's only natural but it is also frustration when an authority intervenes with those biases showing.

I hope the rain clears up in time for the meet. 2 and a half hours to go before the meet starts and it's pouring....

Just saw a live video clip from the national stadium in Kingston. They are having heavy thundershowers.

No way they can run in that weather if the rain keeps up.

Meet is scheduled to begin at 6:40pm US EDT.

It may be a bit delayed to allow the storm to pass. Reminds of the Reebok GP in NY in 2008. Due to heavy rain, races were postposed until the storm passed. Bolt didn't get to run until 11:12pm at night and the rest was history

I paid for the online feed and it's working without a glitch, although the video quality leaves something to be desired. I'm accessing it from the US.

I just saw the women's Olympic development 200m, won in 24.23. The announcer said that's well outside her PB; hopefully it's not a sign that the conditions are conducive to slow times.

I'm at the meet right now.... Pretty uneventful this far. It's still gloomy in the sky and it does seem that it might rain later but I'm hopin for the best. At finish line.


Just now 20.65 for Germaine Brown in the 200m development race.
