What's up everyone. We are doing a contest with T.I. and we are giving away $1200 a day for the next 10 days. Just wanted to give you all a heads up.

they are planning a coin toss to decide who will go to olympics?

smh....... how u gonna even try to decide this with a coin toss? Track n field being around since forever and they have no official protocol for deciding 🤬 like this: FAIL!!!

Allyson Felix and Jenebah Tarmoh both crossed the finish line in 11.068 seconds — but even high-tech cameras can't pinpoint a winner and the solution is controversial

    Justin Gatlin made the U.S. Olympic team for London over the weekend by winning the 100m at the Olympic Trials. On the women's side, the U.S. still doesn't have a third entrant in the 100m because Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh finished in dead heat.

    While Felix and Tarmoh are deciding between a run-off or a coin flip, Gatlin offered a third, sexist option: a mud/Jell-O wrestling match. (First, Gatlin said he wanted Jell-O wrestling, then switched it up to mud on Sportscenter.)

    "I'm voting for Jell-O wrestling match," Gatlin said. "Red Jell-O. That's my favorite."
    Oh see, that's supposed to be funny! The fact Felix and Tarmoh have worked just as hard as Gatlin to get to the Olympics as sprinters should be thrown out. Ignore their accomplishments as athletes and focus on the fact Gatlin wants to be titillated.

    He said this on the same day Saudi Arabia announced they were letting women compete in the Olympics for the first time in their history and two days after Title IX's 40th anniversary was celebrated. In Omaha, Neb., Eugene, Ore. and San Jose, Calif., female athletes are trying to become Olympians in swimming, track and field, and gymnastics.
    But with a comment he said two different times, Gatlin reminded these athletes that some still see them as objects.


    I read what Gatlin said and thought about Felix fine ass and thought
