Fantasy League, final

To whatever faithful readers may be left, I apologize for my inconsistency in posting. Coaching and teaching now take up most of my time.

The World Cup as a final big meet in the Fantasy League didn't turn out to be a great idea. Less than half of the top athletes competed. Here are the final standings:

Kenenisa BEKELE ETH 5k, 10k 310.2
Asafa POWELL JAM 100m 306.2
Jeremy WARINER USA 200m, 400m 297.3
Virgilijus ALEKNA LTU DT 289.2
Bershawn JACKSON USA 400mH 253.2

Brad WALKER USA PV 237.7

My wife's team wins by 90 points.

We'll get this started in May or thereabouts next year, with a few twists added to make it more entertaining. Anyone can participate!
