Poor quality human being, tbh.
Total nonsense. He was asked a stupid question after he ****ed up a great chance to win a gold medal. Trying to make some sort of deep character judgement off a few comments he's made after not thinking is fairly retarded. He's a winner and he hates losing and says some things that don't sound great, pretty sure that doesn't qualify him as a poor human being or whatever,
After he wins, pretty much the first thing he does every single time is praise his team and how hard they work for him. I find it mildly irritating that people just seem to enjoy kicking him when he loses and says something a bit silly which happens occasionally, rather than focus on the fact that he's pretty much the best sprinter of all time (arguably) and a very decent bloke (I've heard this from many people I know at my club who have cycled with him as he used to race up here) that he's actually a smashing bloke. I know who I'm going to trust any way.
