Don't Believe Everything You Read

For years it has been promulgated by the British Press that there was a very personal hatred between British middle-distance greats Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe. There's even a movie about the whole thing. Not only did they each beat the other in their competitor's favorite distance, but they also took world records away from each other. One from a privileged background and the other from the hardscrabble British underclass.  It does make for a great story, even if a lot of it is hogwash.

Steve Ovett recently commented for the first time about how he really feels about SebCoe.

Here's a nice video of "the perfect performance".

Here's a great video of the 1980 Olympic 800 M Final:
