He ran 9.74 in Rieti. He chokes in big competitions, but has now improved his previously set top mark by 0.03. Beat that Tyson. :p
Asafa really needs to perform in a big contest for a change though, like the Olympics next year.

Pity he can't show his best at the most important times.
But that being said, way to go to come back strong after Osaka's disappointment.

Probably drugged beyond belief, he figured it doesn't matter now being a choker.

For once I agree with you, it's no coincidence that 3 of the last 6 100m record holders have been CAUGHT on the stuff.

I'm not so sure about Asafa being a drug taker... isn't his father a priest or something like that? It just seems really weird...

Thats just like saying my fathers a priest so I must be straight - he could actually be gay!

Note: My fathers not a priest, nor is he homosexual - hes just a disgrace
