T&F athlete: My own two sons. Got me going to track meets and XC meets I wouldn't normally. Ciarán (18) ran sprints last summer, switched to middle distance in September and ran a 4:44 mile on Christmas Day (entirely solo). Not a bad progression.
Sports star: Alistair Cragg (new hope for the Irish future)
Politician: Our own Minister for Health, Mary Harney. Probably the least apt appointment to that post ever, in any country. I'd better leave it at that. Pic:
Person I've come across: John Murray, PhD. One of my Maths teachers in NUIM. I've changed my attitude towards learning and exams over the years. His influence has cemented it.

:: Person you:ve come across- Too many to mention, my training partners and coaches for giving me a passion for what I do.
: Actor- Bob Geldorf- yeah right. Honestly, my vote goes to Sharon Stone for sparking the half gallon of water a day and don't eat after 7pm diet used to get middle age women into bikinis so they can emmulate Demi Moore and pick up good looking, younger men. Either that or stop their husbands from going after good looking, younger women. So Sharon Stone and Demi Moore. Honorable mention to King Kong for being such a badass.
Kluft is gorgeous. If only Astrid Kumbernuss was 18 years old and living down under. I'd ask her out in a second and we'd start a race of UBER- children. I'm way too tired to be posting on a messageboard. CIAO

Sports Star- I don't really follow any other sport so no clue.
Politician- sadly I have to go with Bush.
Person who've come across- have to say my husband. He teaches me every day about interigty, kindness and patience. 8) Then squackee , who makes me laugh and feel good about my spelling.
Oh yes I have to mention one of the little guys I coach (9 years old) who said to me "coach mojo -there is no where else on earth I want to be but at the track". hear hear!
Actor: Oh Tom Cruise definately. I hear there has been a rush on the sales of utlrasound machines and new couches.
Track & Field Athlete -- Marion Jones, as she taught me that when it
comes to judging character, I am a useless tit.
