    Usain Bolt's Olympic 100m win

    Do you think he did it clean or was he jacked on drugs?

    I think it up because of the story that five Jamaican sprinters test positive which has also brought up some interesting debate on another forum I visit (and yes I have posted in that thread, my username is pretty obvious). And I'll use another quote:

    "And he ran .14 faster than a completely jacked Ben Johnson (who at least had the guts to confess). Bolt did celebrate early and probably could have crossed in 9.55. Nearly a quarter second faster than Johnson's doped time. That's an astonishing gap in a 100m sprint.

    Bolt's achievement, even if he doesn't improve on this, is equivalent to FloJo's 1988 impossible times.

    Dr. Wade Exum was right, obviously. "


    I know Manan's position on drugs in sport is, if you take the view that taking drugs to improve your performance is fine, would you support a fast bowler who tampered with the ball by picking at the seam or using a bottle cap?
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    I can't work out if your Alpe d'Huez or Craig1985..

    I'm going to give Bolt the benefit of the doubt and say he was clean.

    No one gives a **** about athletics except for 15 minutes of it at the Olympics, who cares.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I was thinking the same thing. Thought it's Craig1985 on first look.

    Can I have a link to this run again anyway? I had a look on YouTube, it only has it in pictures. I'm still keen to know if he is on the juice.

    I always felt he could be on drugs. His performances seem to be unbelievable.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Hmm, I have no idea if he was on drugs. Not surprised a cycling forum wants to throw some **** at other sports though.

    It really has got to a depressing state of affairs to just say because someone was/is outstanding it must be drugs. If Bradman was around today they'd probably be having a poppers at him.

    Until he's tested positive, I'm going to just view it as a wonderful achievement, and a great thing to watch.

    Me too.

    The man's a freak - he's the tallest sprinter I've ever seen, and as a result of that height he has the most enormous stride.

    I hoped he was clean, but his performances are almost literally superhuman, so it's hard to dispel that scintilla of doubt.

    In his favour, I suppose, is that his speed comes more from his rangey strides rather than the explosive starts one associates with the more obvious juicers like Johnson & Gatlin.

    He seemed to win by tooo much to be on drugs - you think a doper would be more subtle about it, rather than winning by a week after jogging the last 1/3 of the race.
    Or something.

    All the others were on drugs and they just let Bolt win so no one would suspect them.

    He was running fast youth times as well. 200m record there and then slacked off for a couple years so anyone who wasn't following him would obviously be surprised if he started living up to his potential. Pretty fast in person. Trains at my uni.

    I reckon that's the sane take on it. Can't go slinging mud without proof, just because he has been so good.
