OH BOY, DON'T YA LIE ON THE TRACK: American sprinter Jon Drummond, long known as the "clown prince" of Track and Field, had an unusual reaction to his disqualification from a qualifying race over the weekend- he decided to lie down on the track until he was forcibly removed. The incident was reminiscent of a similar occurance during the 1996 Olympics, when British runner Linford Christie was disqualifed from the 100 meters, refused to leave the track, and punctuated the moment by tossing his track shoes in a trashcan.
At any rate, its' nice to see a Mr. Drummond in the news other than that little guy out in California...
