Who will star at World Championships?

comment on the article

Around 100 of the world's top male pentathletes and 60 of the top women will take part in the World Championships this weekend at Crystal Palace.

Olympic champion Lena Schoneborn admits she will find it tough, having taken time off to study since Beijing and is taking time to get used to the new combined run/shoot format.

Could Heather Fell or Katy Livingston beat her to gold?

What do you make of the men's event?

Olympic gold medallist Andrei Moiseev faces a battle with reigning world champion and Russian compatriot Ilia Frolov.

Do either of the leading Brits, Sam Weale and Nick Woodbridge, who finished 10th and 25th on their Olympic debuts in Beijing, stand a chance of making the podium?

It`s always good to agree with yourself or you might have a split personality.

Not too sure why you pick up all these negative comments other than because you ask questions with no opinion yourself. However, I was at the World Championship yesterday and despite it only being the qualifier it was great sporting drama. Today and Sunday will be even more intense. So here is the age old question - with four ladies through to the final; Heather Fell currently being world No 1 (and a silver medalist at the Olympics - not bronze!) - why is our publicity and coverage so poor. We have little sporting success - why can't we concentrate more on where we stand a chance.

The second two answers are the same idiot with different IDs, he also has a third ID. All saying exactly the same stupid things. He`s probably been banned by now.
