Lets have a cycle road race where the downhill section has loads of narrow bits, that will make it exciting....

Lets allow the spectators to stand in the narrow bits to make it even harder for the athletes...

I know, we can let the spectators chase after the cyclists as well....

So how long have you been a member of the Rio Olympic Event Organisation Team Mr Darwin sir...  rubschin:

From a friend:

Just been researching Tamara Press on tinternet and translated a russian wiki page on said athlete. The last sentence translated as
"She also set eleven world records during his career: five of the ball, and six in the discus."
Plus ca change.
