    Damn. This will really "kill" his ex-girlfriend once-and-for-all.

    Excellent, well done Strathclyde :) Nadine, unless you know Oscar personally, how do you know how he treats his girlfriends unless you believe everything you read. Nobody is squeeky clean, but then again, ex's can be just a little bit biased when things are over and they are no longer enjoying the limelight. There are two sides to every story, however, some people like to keep their private lives exactly that, private, without feeling the need to be unpleasant or dis-respectful to somebody they once cared about, regardless of why they are no longer together. Personally I think his achievements are awsome, but as I don't know him personally I will judge him on his ability only.

      @delish: point taken, though perhaps you need to judge him on his performance at the Olympics when he threw his toys out the cot because he came second... talk about pathetic!! Achievements might have been awesome, but he has become to arrogant (just interviews, his post run thoughts, etc) he should have stayed down to earth...
