Still with athletics - who ran the then second fastest 200m in history (behind Johnson's 19.32) when he won at Lausanne in 2006? His time was 19.63 seconds.

Are there more than three? Zara Phillips, Eilish McColgan and Elena Baltacha.

I didn't know about Baltacha and had Lindsay Sharp (daughter of Scottish sprinter Cameron) as the third. Doubtless there are others...

I hadn't realised Lynsey Sharp was his daughter.

With only 4 players from each county allowed, who is the highest ranked male tennis player not to be eligible for the Olympics? (Not including those who have chosen not to play, are injured or are ineligible for not having enough Davis Cup experience)

I know Spain have a lot of top players so I'll take a punt at Fernando Verdasco.

Not Verdasco, he's going, right nationality though.

I should probably add they selected for the Olympics based on rankings from the 11th of June.

EDIT: Now Nadal has withdrawn due to injury he has thoughtlessly ruined my question.

The answer is now Granollers (world number 20), due to the fourth sport being taken by Lopez who was the fifth highest ranked player (at 17th in the world) at the time of selection (behind Nadal, Ferrer, Almagro and Verdasco), but is now ranked below Granollers. That'll teach me to try and write a topical question. Someone else set one.

OK, I'll step in if I may.

Which 10 European countries or territories have been represented in the Commonwealth Games?
