got this from my friend franka

[ a litte background info, david coleman is a famed english sports commentator]

here are some of his greatest moments:

  1. That’s the fastest time ever run – but it’s not as fast as the world  


  2. Don’t tell those coming in the final result of that fantastic match, but

    let’s just have another look at Italy’s winning goal.

  3. For those of you watching who do not have television sets, live commentary

    is on Radio 2.

  4. This is a truly international field, no Britons involved.

  5. Both of the Villa scorers – Withe and Mortimer – were born in Liverpool as

    was the Villa manager Ron Saunders who was born in Birkenhead.

  6. He’s 31 this year – last year he was 30.

  7. He won the bronze medal in the 1976 Olympics so he’s used to being out  

    in front.

  8. We estimate, and this isn’t an estimation, that Greta Waltz is 80 seconds


  9. Linford Christie’s got a habit of pulling it out when it matters most.

  10. The late start is due to the time.

  11. He’s got his hands on his knees and holds his head in despair.

  12. He’s even smaller in real life than he is on the track.

  13. This could be a repeat of what will happen in the European games next


  14. It’s a battle with himself and with the ticking fingers of the clock.

  15. Here are some names to look forward to – perhaps in the future.

  16. In the Moscow Olympics Lasse Viren came in fifth and ran a champions race.

  17. He just can’t believe what’s not happening to him.

  18. One of the great unknown champions because very little is known about him.

  19. There’ll be only one winner now – in every sense.

  20. He is accelerating all the time. The last lap was run in 64 seconds and

    the one before that in 62.

  21. The big Cuban opened his legs and showed his class.

  22. (At the velodrome) The front wheel crosses the fininsh line, closely

    followed by the back wheel.
