Track cycling starts tomorrow! Fitting that the competitions begin with qualifying for the women’s team sprint. Will you be watching? And do you think Gold added to your understanding of the sport?
I rather think that Gold’s choice to focus on the individual sprint takes away a huge part of cycling and sports in general: teamwork. I find it hard to believe that Zoe would go ahead with all the irresponsible things she’s done without once thinking that it would come back to haunt her one way or another—if not in personal life, then in her sporting life, which is one arena that she clearly cares the most about. (“I’m doing Athens. I’m not doing…you know…baby.”
Even the Tour de France is much more about the team than how it seems.
Bring on the team sprint.
