Olympics: Slippery Hands

Wow! What are the chances that BOTH the American men and women 4X100 relay teams would have baton exchange woes on the same leg, disqualifying both teams before the finals, despite leading in both scenarios, heading towards the homestretch to certain gold medal wins? I'm surprised no one is calling for an investigation into a potential "fix." Is gambling allowed in the Olympics? If so, someone just made a killing :o)

P.S. the thighs on the women sprinters are incredible! Damn!

    I am so disappointed in US track and field. Too many guys playing football. The women are doing ok.But it is Jamica year(even though they train in US unversities)So it like your cousin winning the thing this time.

    guess

    Funny, similar situations occured with both the men and women's relay teams of Team GB (that's what the British olympbic team is called in the UK media).

    Hmm... You may be on to something with the 'fixing' scam, Tambini.
