I don't get it. There could be 4 fifths of a second between the Olympic gold and whoever in some of these events, right? And that could be the difference between gold and coming last.
And you have these athletes doing their Personal Best or breaking their national records or whatever, right? Everybody's doing a PB at the Games, and doing another PB in the final if they reach it. Can they not do a PB at the track & field meeting in Ballyhaunis or the Tri-Athy Triathlon?
So that Laura Trott won with her cycling. But that Victoria girl is the one doing the shampoo ads, claiming that her hair requires all the nutrients it can absorb because cycling is tough on the follicles!

"I'm Nick Skelton. I'm pushing 60, and 10 years ago I broke my bloody neck. Why? Because in the main, I do a lot of show jumping...
That's why, in the mane, I like to rub a couple of dollops of Pantene Pro-V Plus in before the big events with my horse, Big Star. Because the extra vitamins...are essential!
And the results...are fabulous! Go Jeem TB!"
