Excellent (Non-Political!) News

This is terrific. In case the link doesn't work, Perdita Felicien, who was a gold-medal favourite at the Olympics last year only to hit a hurdle at the start of her race, has won her first outdoor race since then.

Here's someone who was seen as a prime gold-medal hopeful in Athens, and who was subject to a lot of media tongue-wagging when she fell. I can only imagine how it all felt to someone in her early 20's. And yet, here she is, winning again. Good for her; here's hoping she's still in conention at Beijing '08.

More later.
