Hey all just wanted some opinions about this story. I love Jana Pittman and the way she goes about her running, however is it too much the publicity that all networks and papers are giving her. The Australian press are giving such a hard time especially the so called cat fight with Tamsyn Lewis, I am sorry Tamsyn is no where the runner that Jana is and that Jana was right in saying that distractions have cost Tamsyn medals and finals at Olympic level. This really is not a cat fight its Jana expressing her views which we are all allowed to do. It also does take two to tango in a fight too.

Watching the games this morning the commentators are saying "time for the Jana drama" and I was like are you kidding me with this, just leave her alone and let her do what she does best. I really dont blame Jana for fearing crowds at the MCG because one bad thing you do or say to the media leaves bad tastes in people minds. Although we are a forgiving nation (Jelena Dokic) and we always want to see a champion at thier best, it must be in the back of her mind though along with the pressure of winning a medal.

I trully wonder if people realise that Jana is enagaged to and English Runner and that she could do a Sonia O'Sullivan and run for England as well as Australia if she gets pushed away by the Australian media. I for one do not want to see this as Jana is the best talent on the track since Cathy Freeman and that if she goes I think that the media has thier part to blame my motto of the whole situation is "Let Jana Run".

Does anyone have views they would like to share

:wavey: Yuppers I agree with you, but she doesn't do much to stem the flow of criticism towards her, only seems to fuel it.

One thing that needs to be realised here is she is paid big dollars for endorsements so of course she is going to be in the public eye a lot.

Running is a sport where it's important for the athlete to have an huge ego, unforntunately Australians believe every world class athlete we produce is going to be shy and timid like Cathy Freeman. IMO

B.T.W...who said Jelena Dokic was forgiven? :tape: :scratch: :shrug:

she's a funny girl. :lol:

on the drama issue, i have noticed that cath.freeman and jane.fleming have said that jana is overreacting.

regards her going to live in england, most top oz track athlete's spend nearly all of the time overseas + her BF is a pom, so where is the news here? taking all things into account it would be unusual if she didnt move overseas.

BTW, i found it a bit over the top that she couldnt jog 400m with the queens baton. :o
