2 days? Wow, yeah that's harder than the Tour De France then. Also I don't know why money comes into it, money in sport is all down to supply and demand (except in the case of womens tennis).
@SuperCoolEskimo I didn't see your post about hype before, just the ones about her looks - but really, you think it's easy to win at Heptathlon? 7 sporting disciplines (not 2), examined over two days - with far less technical and financial support behind it than tennis or cycling? I disagree.
