  1. Anderson says:

    200 meters??? Is that even *possible*???

    … oh, “track & field.” Got it. Sorry.

  2. Rodney Dill says:

    Go Gay!

    (er… well you know what I mean)

  3. I would have thought half a meter would be stretching it.

    Perhaps it is a typo and is supposed to be 200 millimeters, though then I would modestly contest his record.

    Perhaps James can run a reverse captions challenge. He runs a headline and we have to supply the picture that goes with it.
