"European Cross Country Gold Medalist" Matthew Bowser has launched a stinging attack on the selectors committee.
Bowser, who has trained numerous times over the years with the Badders elite feels that his recent performances are more than worthy of a spot on the Great Britain team for the forthcoming games.
"I can't believe that Charles has snubbed me, I mean it's not like I even use Twitter. I have kept my head down over the last few months and been really smashing it in training."
"I ran 13:22 on the Bromhead 3 mile loop the other week and it felt really comfortable, if anything I was just jogging," said the ex-Antiques merchant.
Bowser has recently become engaged, a move which has shocked some of his close friends who believed a relationship announcement with Straw (group-traitor) to be just around the corner.
"I think Bowser got the idea of getting a missus from the Hollyoaks storyline to be honest, his relationship with the lad Straw is much like that of Ste and Brendan."
"I don't know what Straw keeps doing wrong but I see him up the track now and again always sporting black eyes and a sore back," said a John O'Shea lookalike source close to the pair.
