Olympian’s Polygraph Says She’ll Win Gold

<i>Wow. Hot and confident.</i>

Wow. Hot and confident.

Ah, the power of positive thinking . . .

BEIJING – When Kelly Sotherton says she is going to win heptathlon gold at the Beijing Olympics, the Briton has scientific proof that she absolutely believes it.

The 31-year-old, a bronze medalist in Athens four years ago, recently underwent a polygraph test conducted by Doctor Hilary Witchel, a leading psycho-physiologist from Bristol University.

After a series of control questions, Sotherton was asked if she would win the Olympic title and her physiological responses indicated that her answer, “Yes, I will win gold in Beijing”, was genuine. (H/T – )

Okay, this story is bizarre. Why on earth would this chick take a polygraph for something like this?

And I guess the better question is, “How stupid will she feel if she doesn’t win the gold medal?”

    Why she would do it probably has more to do with the doctor wanting to do a paper, study, or some other research and she was just the guinea pig.

    As far as actually believing she’ll win the medal, when you’re a world class athlete you have to be positive you’ll win or you’ll lose an edge. Plus, why would she compete at that level if she didn’t believe she could win?

    Phillip – Agreed, but I just think that taking a polygraph is a little out there. Hell, they’re not even reliable, so what was the point? Personally, I hope she wins, because it’ll be a better story.

    Did somebody steal her belly button?

    Doghouse – I am conducting my own personal investigation as we speak.
