    Not to sure who of the petrol heads here watch athletics, but did anyone see the last event of the Polish athletics event today where the UK team where basically disqualified due to their team sheet listing a discus thrower for one leg of the A team 4x 400m relay, deary me! what a blunder:(

    Life as we know it I suppose:) we all make mistakes:(

    Yes, watched it, disappointing last minute c#ck up, sack the clown responsible. How difficult can it be to write a list of four men in a race? :doh:

    Makes a change to cocking up the baton change, though ... used to be a national pastime.

  4. Sums up the UKs utter ineptitude - i hope the individual responsible is NEVER given a position of responsibility again - even for making tea...

    The named individual hadn't even travelled to Poland - “Youcef Zatat - who had not travelled to Poland - was included in the quartet instead of sprinter Rabah Yousif.”
