That is great for Paula Radcliffe, what a remarkable dream to win gold at Helsinki. The British must be very proud. Paula should run the Boston Marathon. Then she could break decade long streak by Catherine Ndereba and others from Kenya.

As a track athlete myself and serious follower of track and field, I must say, I think the emphasis on the Olympics is silly. It's just one meet... Olympic gold is a nice touch, but it doesn't make or break a career. What happens the other three years, 11 months should count for a bit more, I'd say. ;)

ask any athlete what they would rather have, any! Olypic Gold or a world championship a prize is only as valuable as the owners perception of it ;)

Wow she is a frickin amazing runner! :eek: I love watching her run (might be a runner thing but...) she runs so fast even though her head moves non stop.
