Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So, inspired by airborne_aircrew asking if he is a cnut via a comment about Phelps, who do the esteemed members of Arrse think is the greatest olympian? Phelps, Bolt, Lewis, Ali, Eddie the Eagle?

    My vote goes to Redgrave on the grounds of consistency over time.

    1. The Royal Navy

    Daley Thompson

    Lots of medals and lots of different skills to win.
     
  3. Dawn FRASER, best use of an olympic flag yet(TOYKO 1964)



    The Pee ran down my leg
     
  4. Agree about Daley Thompson for GB

    Would say my personal favourite runner has to be Haile Gebreselassie (?) considering for most of his career he didn't have access to expensive facilities his running ability is amazing.
