Does anyone else do gymnastics here? :P haha, I absolutely suck at volleyball...or any sport that involves making contact with balls. (Oh dear that sounded a tad bit more provoking than I wanted it to.)

I've been a member of Poole Runners (Athletics Weekly's running club of the year 2008 :D ) for about 3 1/2 years. Started off doing 1500m, but gradually increased my distances, the longest race I ever did was 7.5 miles (about 12km!). Just over a year ago I decided I'd had enough of just training with guys, I was 18 and all the girls who did longer distances had either left the club or gone to uni! So I'm now a sprinter, 200m and 400m being my best events, my acceleration isn't really good enough for 100m.

I'm trying to get back into playing football (soccer), I did play for a youth team for one season a few years ago but we were awful! Lost our first match 20-0 (!) and the best result in the entire seaon was a 3-3 draw! Problem is, at 19 (nearly 20, 5 days!) it's a bit late to start taking it seriously. That should've happened when I was 15 at the very latest.

I've done so many sports throughout my life and only one has stuck: Soccer... or football. Whatever you call it, haha.

Soccer is the one where I can release my anger effectively. Preferably at the goalie... haha. :P
I normally play defense and sometimes right mid. Depends if the coach likes me that day or not. :roll:

*breathe* no, I don't really like watching tennis, all that really happens is that the players make weird noises - I prefer to actually play. I just check the score every half an hour. My mum tells me Nadal and Federa (can't spell) were both very good, since I can't be bothered to check, I'll take her word for it. :lol:

I thought you were like a pro :P And knew more than Rafael and Roger. Then there's Novak Djokovic, then Andy Murray, then someone else, then Gilles Simon, then Andy Roddick then so and so :P

Then Jelena Jankovic, Then Maria Sharapova (I think), then Danara Safrina, then Elena Dementeiva, then Ana Ivanovic, then Venus Williams, Then someone else and so and so...

Hahahaha :P I know more, but I don't know the orders yet ^_^ Tennis is the bomb. And I love it how they make the noises, because they're the noises when they're having.................. So it's funny to what they sound like in bed :lol:

Sorry if I made things disturbing...

lol - I'm definitely not a pro, I used to be on a tennis team though, so I'm not completely throw-your-racket-everywhere-get-hit-by-a-ball bad. :lol: I was in the newspaper a few times - my claim to fame :D
I know Tim Henman, Serena Williams and umm ... that budding young star person

Me and my sister always imitate the noises when tennis is on tv, so we're used to disturbing sounds :lol:
