I'd just like to use this forum as a means to vent my disgust over the recent insinuations made in the media, regarding Paula Radcliffe's brillant performances this year. I was particularly annoyed by the suggestions in the Daily Mail, that as Britons we trust that our athletes such as Paula are clean, when perhaps they are not.
I find it difficult to believe that these 'experts' have not followed Paula's fantastic, linear improvements over the last 10 years. This is no sudden, dramatic improvement of a drug-cheat!
One more little rant on the subject - maybe I'm alone in this, but I'll no longer be cheering on England's Commonwealth heroine, Kelly Holmes. Kelly, if you are going to go on accusing other athletes of cheating, show us the proof! Don't go on like a sulking loser!
Phew! That's that off my mind then. So please authorities, do go catch the cheats, but media and athletes, speak from facts, not fiction!
