I'm not really talking Olympians here and the ideas and possibilities thread for 2018 is closed but...

 

 

London Marathon organisers have already indicated Sunday might be the hottest (weather wise) race ever. So, just wondering if there's any well-meaning middle-aged chubster in your area already outing him/herself as one running in a costume for a heart-breaking personal reason. 

 

Just sayin'

Well fuck. London Marathon: MasterChef semi-finalist Matt Campbell dies. Not exactly a middle-aged chubster in a costume, but from your neck of the woods!

Why is he posted in an Olympics thread?

Just a hunch, but maybe because the ideas and possibilities thread for 2018 is closed.

Indeed and I'd doubtless have got spammed if I'd started a "random nonentities risking life via athletic endeavour thread"

 

Speaking of which - anyone know how Hilary Lister is doing these days?

Hans Gunter Winkler, German equestrian dead at 91. Five Gold, one silver, one bronze, notably on Halla, who deserves some credit too, though probably died a long time ago.

I’d be surprised if he doesn’t get a DDP obit quickly (pun intended) considering how many new sources outside the UK are reporting it already.

How long until the Daily Mail/AP obit? I give it 14 more minutes.

:o Cause of death prostate cancer?  That wasn't what it said on the tin when I was doing my DDP shopping.
