Pleased to see the Kostas Kenteris keeping it all in perspective - he's said:

"All the people who have been crucifying me on television are the same people who were standing next to me for photographs after each of my great successes," he added.

"After crucifixion comes resurrection."

Apparently he's hoping for a gold in the 200m over water.



I've beaten that Nathan Robertson at badminton you know...

He was 7 and I was 14 (or so). And I might've had a five point head start. (His mum ran our local badminton club and he and his brother used to come along every so often - his brother was rock, don't think I managed to get any more than a point off of him)

Christ, no. Don't think Mr Robertson was actually born at the national badminton centre. He's a good South Notts lad like me - Cotgrave Leisure Centre we used to play at. That was before they shut the pit too....
