Now that you're done watching the 800m runners FLY over the ground, there's some hard-hitting dialogue coming from the sidelines:CBC commentator: "Gary, you said yesterday after you ran that it was a stupid race."Canadian Gary Reed: "You know, I was mad at myself for a minute, but I just got ready for this race, and now it's onto the final."In conclusion, CBC commentator: It's running.
