I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

Edmund, you've confused this simple soul. Do you want our athletes to stand or run? I know that the good book says that the race is not always to the swift; but it never goes to the one who stands there, heart filled with enthusiasm or clogged with chip fat.

"They will win by just competing..." Clearly you didn't watch Steve Ovett's commentary during the Commonwealth Games. He just happens to know what he's talking about.

Alas, I can't sign either. Not in London, and I'm in a sports club already. As I'm doing something positive, and I'm not in an armchair, I intend to fully exercise to right to call this yet another cynical PR stunt by a cynical PR-infatuated politician.
