Great attitude

I really felt sorry for her, she was clearly cut to pieces and inconsolable.

Jeezuz ... hadn't realised they were expected to run up so many hills. You have to feel sorry for Paula Radcliffe, the weight of the nation's expectations on your shoulders, especially some of the eejits on the BBC, notably the non athletes Irvine and Baldy, who took it for granted she would win.

Well done to the Japanese runner who had bottle to attack on the incline steeper than a ski slope.

sorry....obviously we don't know the facts but why should the poster get so much abuse ? Sounds a bit like 'athletics snobbery'. However injured she is (unless heart attack status etc) I'm sure she'd get more plaudits if she walked the last bit. Like it or not she's going to get a shoeing from the media.............

Paula Radcliffe isn't used to competing, to be at 35km and be in 3rd place was alien to her. She was so focused on getting a medal, that when she slipped into 4th she stopped because she knew a medal was out of her grasp and was so focused on finishing 1st that she didn't know how to cope.

I s'pose running 35km is a bit emotional in itself.

That was a brutal course. I'm sure when the official times are posted there will be quite a few athletes who dropped out. When she dropped back to 4th spot she looked totally spent and I think she lost it mentally. She had given everything and simply had nothing left. It was heartbreaking to watch.

........I thought some of the commentary was a bit off....."this isn't a test of whose the best marathon runner, rather who can cope with the conditions best..", "...I suppose we have to give credit to xxx.....". Obviously I'm in no position to criticise and I think everyone agrees she is one of our best athletes...lets just hope she didn't really give up because the medal chance had gone

Its hard.

The girl has spent years working towards the olympic marathon gold medal. Years and years of hard graft and physical torment provided her with what she thought was good preperation.

Then when she went 4th, I guess it dawned on her that she really could never compete for it. It was a realisation that she couldn't be the athlete that she and others wanted her to be.

It was unfair (and obviously against the rules) for him to join her on the course at one stage, and I'm pleased that an official stepped in to get him off the road. But I remember Paula Radcliffe ran with two male pacemakers at the London Marathon in 2003, and I thought that was unfair too.

It looks as if training in Athens paid off for the
Japanese winner. Shouldn't Paula have been
advised to have done likewise in view of the
extreme climate and difficult nature of the
course? Have the greatest sympathy for
her because of her selfless dedication and
all the punishing training she put in to win
an Olympic Gold for Britain. Also don't think
she was greatly helped by all the "over-the-
top media hype, especially by the BBC who
for months raised expectations that she was
our only gold medal "certainty" in athletics.
