Quote Of The Day
“The whole purpose of a competition is to discover through the intricate calculus of talent, training, and tactics how one athlete gets to the finish line ahead of all others. It is the ineffable nature of that calculus that makes the sport intriguing. Take away the unknowable, replace it with certainty, and you’ve essentially eliminated the game. Why don’t women just compete against men? Because we would know the result before the start. It wouldn’t constitute apples racing apples, it would be apples against oranges. … I jokingly suggested that Ajee Wilson and the other international 800-meter women just stand still at the start line for five seconds after the gun goes off, while Caster and the other high testosterone types take off. Then, after the gap has been established, have their own competition, so they and the crowd can witness apples v. apples and oranges v. oranges.”
