    Re: World Cross Country

    I have just sat down to watch it but SkyPlus says the recording failed due to "power cut". I am really fed up because I was looking forward to it and particularly seeing the course in Edinburgh.

    Well done to Roadrunner.

    Someone come on here and tell me what it was like and what I missed.

    Well done Andi and all the British runners today (male and female) you should be proud of your efforts. By god some of those Kenyans and Ethiopians are good. Bekele winning even after stopping to put his shoe back on was something else.

    As for Brendan Fosters comments I felt he gave no positive support to any of our British Male runners instead after the mens race he bemoaned that its a pity some of our better athletes did not take part eg. (Paula Radcliffe).

    I missed the cross country today because something went wrong with my SkyPlus recording. Therefore I didn't have to endure hearing Brendan Foster.

    As a kid I loved athletics and I loved watching it on the telly, but if I was a kid now Foster would really turn me off with his dour commentary and his platitudes and his basic ignorance. No sport benefits from that kind of presentation. It is rubbish.

    I think there is a bit of vested financial interest in it though which we aren't told about.

    Re: World Cross Country

    good point about BF, he did say it was amazing to see Bekele run etc and what he has achieved but his comments about the home athletes did seem sour, great effort roadrunner!

    I was a little sad they didn't show all the athletes crossing the line, would only have taken a few more minutes!

    Went to watch this - it was FANTASTIC!!!! Laura Park did really well in the junior women - she's a fell runner (or was!). And Andi came through really well - fantastic run. Well done everyone!!
