Quote from: Slim on August 06, 2017, 21:24:56 pmSeems very odd to me that a 35 year old could be a World Champion 100m sprinter; 5 years older than Bolt who is now apparently past his best. I can't really doubt that he's clean now, though. Just seems very surprising.Really dismayed with all the booing, it just seems like bullying to me. And amid all the commentary about his misdemeanours and his suitability to be taking part, I'd have liked to hear one commentator at least recognise his achievement and effort, despite the circumstances.

Quote from: Nïckslïkk2112 on August 08, 2017, 00:12:38 amI have no problem with the booing, after all we do love a Pantomime villain.Gatlin has shown no contrition or remorse, he just blames everybody but himself. A masseuse rubbed testosterone into his buttocks as an act of spite indeed!I'd boo Alberto Contador if he came cycling past me

Quote from: Bez on August 08, 2017, 08:11:26 amThere was a tennis player in the news yesterday who got a 2 month ban because her mother had dropped a cancer pill on a worktop which had then been used to prepare pasta. The residue form the pill had contaminated the pasta and a banned substance ended up in the player's bloodstream....sound ridiculous to me....
