yea, not suspicious at all
Josie Knight just won a silver medal for GB in the women's pursuit.
She's from Kerry. She rode for Ireland up until a couple of years ago.
Sticks in the craw a bit that she went to the dark side.
Emily Kay came the other way but thats fine, she's sound.
My understandinghere it is
its fairly clear the Danish lad was looking down at the track, so I'm sure he was surprised as anyone when the trailing brit got in his way.
sorry, but I have zero sympathy for them. The brits own history in track cycling has been dodgy as fuck. The brits are a great bunch of lads for latching onto a sport when newly accepted to the olympics. The get a head start on others, sweep up a few medals, but then everyone else catches up and they start pissing and moaning.My understanding
The commissaire had blown the gun prior to it which had declared Denmark Victor so Denmark go to the final (as the winner in the pursuit would)
As Britain still needed to record time, Tanfield finished at 4'28, so Britain go to 7-8 place race tomorrow and Denmark to the gold medal
Tanfield was verbally abused by Madsen. I think Britain have an appeal against it tomorrow morning but I doubt.
Kind of reminded the keirin final in 2016, seeing several team managers running to the commissaire rule books in hand.
I'm guessing he was genuinely angry because Tanfield shouldn't have been in his way.Whatever about Britain in general, I feel no one deserved the verbal abuse Tanfield received from madden.
It was very intimidating to see, madden standing over Tanfield while he was on the ground and roaring and shouting at him
They built a swimming pool into THE PITCH of the stadium where they had the Rugby 7's for this!"Modelled on the skills of the ideal soldier, pentathlon is the only sport created especially for the modern Olympics, being introduced by Games founder Baron Pierre de Coubertin in Stockholm in 1912."
To be fair it hurts like hell sitting in the saddle when I have 'roids!Once the roid rage calmed down.
