So many unexpected medals :yes

Anyway, I'm the happiest about the medal that whole Lithuania has been waiting and expecting by Airinė Palšytė :clap: This is also Lithuania's first ever gold in Indoors :evil:

Thanks for all supports and congratulations. A huge result and totally unexpected medal for us, unbelievable success. Congrats to Volko.

 

unfortunately I can not entirely celebrate and enjoy this historic moment. because just at same time as he run the final, we had a huge tragedy in our family and my stepfather passed away tonight. very very sad evening for me and especially my mom...maybe during next days I´ll not be so much online and will not post everything as I did...but I´ll try my best to post at least the essential things when I´ll find a few of time.

Thanks for your comprehension

Did I miss something or is Bukowiecki really saying eating carrots is his new 'thing'? :d 

 

It sounds like our Dafne Schippers and her magical vegetables :p

Akani Simbine became the first south african sprinter to run sub 10 (9.93 s) and sub 20 (19.95 s) at 100/200 m the same day and i think there are not too many guys in history running sub 10 and sub 20 in their career. 18 year old Clarence Munyai from South Africa ran 20.10 s (200 m) recently and is now the 5th fastest U20 athlete ever, only 0.17 s away from Usain Bolt's junior world record. South Africa is extremely impressive in mens sprint (100/200/400 m) and it also shows in mens long jump. I dont know what happened in Rio with their relay, but if they dont completely mess up in London, they should win a medal with Simbine, Jobodwana, Van Niekerk and one of their young guys (Munyai, Leotlela). I think we have very exciting times ahead and the american/jamaican dominance might be ended by Japan/South Africa. GB, Canada, Germany and China also should have pretty fast relays for the next couple of years, so mens 4 x 100 m relay might be one of the most competitive events in athletics and probably all sports.

I wasn't talking about Germans :lol:

 

I just thought maybe Bukowiecki has been explaining his succes by a new diet of carrots, just like our Dafne Schippers is all "my vegetables make me so fast!" and a lot of Dutch fans can't hold their laugh when people seriously believe that :p

i know - my joke was a respond to comments on Bukowiecki from someone a bit west from Poland ;), maybe it`s better to focus on own country

 

sure i also laugh of it in my Pythony style ;)....i think Dafne uses a lot of bean before a race :d and maybe some cabbage :d
