The BBC is treating Paula Radcliffe’s failed Olympic marathon bid as some kind of national disaster. They interviewed Paula today and were clearly trying to pin the blame for her not finishing the race on the pummelling she took from the heat and the severity of the course, yet at one point in the interview Paula said:
“…knowing that I was going backwards and was out of the medals, that was a kick in the stomach…”
Well there we have it, from the horse mouth! She lost interest in completing the race once her medal chances had gone. Fucking lazy bludger!
I wonder what the future of athletics would be like if everyone shared her attitude?
