JUST pathetic.

That’s the verdict from an Olympic relay legend on today’s statement from the shamed London 4×100 relay team – who today admitted to a wild, Stilnox-fuelled bonding night in the lead-up to last year’s Games.

Michael Delany, who at 18 won silver as part of Australia’s legendary “Mean Machine” 4×100 relay team at the 1984 Games, could not be more scathing of the team when he spoke to news.com.au this afternoon.

“They couldn’t speak for themselves,” Delany told news.com.au. “I thought it was pathetic that there was just the one statement.”
