Well Merlene Ottey was one of the biggest names in athletics... she keeps running great times!!

Now yesterday i saw an article about a young aussie girl chasing the olympic minimum on the steeple chase run.
After lots of attempts this and last year she finally pulverised the olympic minimum..but now they claim it's 2 days too late !!!! huh.gif mad.gif
