Probably-that heptathlete is a junior champion so gets a chance on the bigger stage with J Ennis-her moment is in 4 years-it is probably considered part of the training programme-if you don't compete then the whole thing might seem a waste of time.

Bit like me on the golf-course

That is the same for all sporting events-FA Cup,Wimbledon etc most are there just to make up the numbers with no real chance of winning-it could be that without entering they dont get international funding-this is the stuff that goes on behind the scenes??

There is no prize money at the Olympics -there is prize money at Athletic events-winning an Olympic medal increases your bankability.

The drag behind shopping trolley sprint,the blocking the aisle chatting marathon,the wearing of sensible shoes hurdles

The thing is Pam -what do they do when the career is over there are only a few media opportunities and they ar'nt full time-and these people don't know anything else

Which is why many older footballers bought pubs and spectacularly failed

The rain has arrived-the end of my outdoor activities for the day-not that I had any planned anyway

There are men swimming in the Serpentine-they would appear to be going through the motions

It has all changed most of the top athletes are full time and don't have day jobs-the lines have become blurred, there are sponsors to ensure they don't starve but there is no prize money -that is the unique thing

Footballers have an age restriction-only so many over 23??

Golf is in Rio 2016-that would make a nice trip
