Did anyone else watch the Usain Bolt Nitro athletics meeting tonight? The final event relay was a disgrace with even Bruce McAvaney lost for words trying to explain the most blatant cheating seen in athletics to prevent a dead rubber next Saturday. They might be able to say it's athletics entertainment rather than competition, but it's embarrassing to have possibly the most match fixed event in athletics history held in Australia. I'm still shaking my head.
The last event only required Australia to come last legally to win but they choked and clearly disqualified themselves by not passing the baton anywhere near correctly and the judges fixed the result to allow Australia a win. If that was sport it was a disgrace. It made professional wrestling look real and Henri Leconte tennis legends matches look legit.
Earlier in the evening a competitor tried to sit out one lap of the 1500 and rejoin the leaders. It felt like an episode of It's a Knockout.
