    As it is so quiet here nowadays, which is not such a bad thing, I thought I would mention this small little matter which caught my attention yesterday at the London Cross Country Championships.
    .
    We often fail to notice when the world changes in tiny pigeon steps, but we also wonder how did we get here.
    .
    At the London XC Champs at Parliament Hill they used chip timing. About 50 metres from the finish I saw a young athlete kick off the chip around the ankle. It was very quickly retrieved by another spectator young athlete and thrown into the box with all the other chips.
    .
    I enquired about the reasoning, and it was simple. The athlete did not wish to have their result recorded.
    .
    I have not made any judgement. It was just a another pigeon step towards change. I am undecided whether it is in a good direction, or a bad direction, or neutral.
