IIRC that was some sports clothing logo a year or so back.
(Not dissimilar to FCUK, or that trendy clothes shop (chain?) in the
King's road "Soixante-Neuf". "Very subtle" I thought at the time.

Much as I enjoy Bolt and Johnson, give me Carl Lewis any day.
It's that "Je ne sais quoi". Elegant running.
Like Colin Jackson or Jessica Ennis (or of course Ed Moses).

Sailing and rowing were my chief bodily sports.
Ben Ainsley was born to it. Steve Redgrave achieved it,
but it was thrust upon him because someone failed to shoot him!

Default Hop, step and jump.

Yank that beat him, I admired their ability to maintain their forward
speed while "taking off" again.

I think what Jonathon Edwards did was to treat the step and jump
as distinct enterprises: "Why not boost (as opposed to maintaining)
your momentum?".

Not surprised about frequent injury

When I mentioned this to my friend Tim, he retorted

I may be a bit inebriated/obtuse but this requires a tadge of
elaboration for me ATM.

PS or should I go on a flying visit to Gatwick?
Second thoughts, probably get arrested for FA before I reached Luton.
Passport too expensive to renew anyway.

Was just a pun on the last syllable.
I also had in mind the huge queue at the chip shop I passed last night. Wouldn't get that at Weight Watchers.
