The Bislett Games in Oslo

I’m counchsurfing in Olso with two locals Lars and Ralfs. They are pretty cool guys and have Australia last year and love the place.

This is my second couch surf now after a great experience in Riga, Latvia. is the site where you register and find a place to stay. It might sound a little dangerous but the hosts have references and you use your Spider-sense to suss things out quickly.

So it’s off to one of the most famous meets in the world tonight. Right now in the press centre using their internet access and checking out the startlists. Lewis and Wroe are running the 400m. Birmingham, Gregson and Riseley are all running their favoured events but Riseley gets to run in the Dream Mile which closes the program. There are some amazing fields here Richards and the The Big O go at it in the womens 400m (we know that TBO doesn;t fire unless there are medals around so give this one to Richards.). Asafa is running and Thorkildsen and Pitkimaki go head to head again in the javelin.

Norwegian kids snowball champs open the event!

  1. We all know the Big O doesn’t fire unless we have $100 on her at 67-1!

    Well done in Russia. Were you tempted to suggest that they make bottles an event?

  2. Hey don’t get on TBO today Paul – She will get smashed by Richards…

    Bottles? No – thats a keeper for us!
