Later life[edit]

in 1971 Chris founded 'Chris Brasher's Sporting Emporium' which soon became Sweatshop. Should I add this information and a link?

Go for it. Moreschi (talk) (debate) 12:39, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Will do. Will keep it uncommercial though RoyalBlueStuey (talk) 13:36, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
How about "in 1971 he founded 'Chris Brasher's Sporting Emporium' which later became Sweatshop." and a reference. Also do you think the section "Not originally selected for the Olympics and in the words of the BBC commentary team, 'looking rather heavy', Chris Brasher was far from being favourite to take the 3000m steeplechase title in the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games." is appropriate or not? —Preceding unsigned comment added by RoyalBlueStuey (talkcontribs) 13:43, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
