    No name Lin Clown-Clown, can’t you see that man is not Olympic material?

    The man is running as if he is skipping over rock stones in Dominica; look at the motion of his legs; look at the other runners and compare his motion.

    Somethings are not for all people.

    Now the girl in the triple jump, is a supper star; I am not favoring her, but she will eventually win a goal medal somewhere in the future, but that guy is destine to nowhere!
    If he ever win a goal medal in Dominica, I will shoot me in my foot, and burst my lip with a punch, let blood flow!

    Hahahahahahahahahahaha!
