Amazing, i didn't expect him to break it either. I actually think he could go faster. I would like to see him move up to 400m next year and see what he could do there.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Bolt start out as a 200-400 runner, then dropped the 400 in favor of the 100 in 2007?


Back to the topic, Bolt is a FREAK. Before London 2012, he WILL break 19.00 in the 200, and he'll seriously threaten 9.40 in the 100, if not break it. U-N-R-E-A-L! :eek:

I thought I read some news from local paper here that he actually ran slower intentionally in his last 80m of the heat or the semifinal.:p Maybe he wanted to save his best for last and he actually did it.:worship:

Yes.
Funny how 4 of the last 6 world record holders in the 100m were either known drug cheats (Ben Johnson, Justin Gatlin, and Tim Montgomery) or had damning evidence of drug use against them (Maurece Greene) yet Usain is shattering their records with ease and somehow he is clean? I think it takes a great deal of naivete to believe he is just some superhuman mutant capable of producing these results without the aid of PEDs.

Not to take anything away from Usain Bolt because the guy is immensely talented. PEDs or not the guy is still the fastest man over 100m ever, but I'm tired of people ignoring that athletics has had drug problems and will continue to have drug problems as long as the athletes stay one step ahead of drug authorities. Remember the biggest drug scandal in the history of athletics involving Marion Jones, Tim Montgomery, Kelli White, among others was only exposed because of a bitter track coach. No one would have ever known these athletes were using the clear had Trevor Graham not sent a syringe containing the drug to authorities.

With Jamaica's sudden surge in the sprints one would have to wonder if BALCO part II exists somewhere on the island.

Yes, he became an incidental 100m runner. His specialty is 200m but he included the 100m in his training regimen for speed until his coach realized by clocking his time he was very good also.:eek:

That would mean you believe humanity has peaked and that the records broken in the 80s should still hold. Does that mean there will never be a stronger athelete, faster athelete more talented etc unless it is somehow artificially enhanced?

Ohh please Jamaica's urge isn't sudden. There have been Jamaican athletes at the top of sprinting since the 80s.
I don't believe he is on drugs since 5 Jamaicans have been discovered for drug use it shows they are vigilant unlike the Americans.

All Americans :help: :o In Jamaica, they stone druggies to death. They are ruthless with their drug testings (just ask Ottey).

Usain is simply, as you put it, "just some superhuman mutant capable of producing these results without the aid of PEDs." =D

a lot of sports do
but usain bolt is innocent until proven differently

If he goes under 9 seconds for 100m, he's taking doping, that's what they said, is the maximum a human body could go without enhancements and optimal conditions :ras: So for now he's clean :bounce:

4 Jamaican athletes in the athletic section tested positive, but the names aren't out yet. But I do think, like many people, everyone takes doping, and the organisation gets paid heavily to hide it. But yeah innocent until proven otherwise, but I wouldn't be too surprised if half of those runners test positive.

It's something with science, a big configuration, meaning that in the most optimal situation, you won't be able to go below 9 seconds / 100 meters. It has got to be with muscles, wind, body resistance and stuff like that.

It was on the news, that they could see him improve, but he will never be able to get under 9 seconds (and any other human), cause that would hint the use of enhancing products.

Did they not already officially state that Bolt passed his drug test immediately following his 100m run, making this little bit about other athletes completely irrelevant? I didn't read if they announced his tests after the 200m run, but if he failed, you better believe we'd already know.

I'm not saying he did, but there are still 4 names not out yet. Anyhow it was on tv, about the fact that it's weird that he made so much progress in 2 years, and they said, we don't need to worry about enhancements, unless he goes under 9 seconds, which is impossible for any human, unless they use mechanical and chemical enhancements.

Anyway, I don't think he took something, unless tests say so :) But we need to mention, there are new drugs that aren't traceable yet. It happened in tour the france too.

They = A team of the world leading Bio-Technic scientists. The fact that going under 9 secs is impossible, because, the human hip and leg joints would not be able to support that speed and would break down.

Anyone who thinks that in the coming decades there won't be test tube babies genetically manipulated B4 implantation to have (currently) unbelievable athletic abilities is dreaming. And even if its banned in the US, Europe, Japan, etc. there'll be countries that quietly allow this for their own glory (like China?) or for foreign parents offering $$$ from their own funds or those of investors.

Edit: while I don't think gene splicing has been perfected yet, they may be able to predict based on a sperm or egg donor's DNA that a particular would-be other parent's egg/sperm will have a good chance of producing an elite athlete.

Scientists also thought that the human heart would break down, if not literally explode, from the stress of running a mile in less than four minutes. Roger Bannister proved them wrong. We may not live to see someone run 100 meters in less than nine seconds, but I do believe it will happen in due time.

What are you talking about? :unsure: There were 5 druggies discovered about a month ago- all the names were released.

Apparently there was an appeal that cleared the 5, but Jamaica still didn't allow them to compete. As someone has already mentioned, Usain has passed all his drug testings. :)

Oh, okay. Well if you heard something vague about some athletes about Jamaica, clearly this needs to be continually repeated in the Bolt thread, even though there is nothing to indicate he was implicated. After this, let's go into a thread about American athletes and talk about Marion Jones, because that's relevant.

With all the drug scandals that have rocked MLB and track and field in the last 6 years, you are definitely naÔve to completely rule out the possibility of Mr. Bolt taking PEDs.

Maybe you're the type of person that only takes things at face value, so we'll never agree with each other because I'm a conspiracy theorist and know that not everything in the world of sports that glitters is gold.

It's not my goal in this thread to sway people to believe what I believe, everyone is entitled to their own opinion on these boards. Which is also why I :lol: at the bad rep you gave me.

You also mentioned that my previous post did not make sense, well maybe you can do some research on PEDs (which I've done my fair share of) and then you'll be able to better comprehend :wavey:
