Just seen this, totally agree.
How can anyone call Michael Johnson or Usain Bolt "freaks" ? Now Kratochvilova, that was something different.

Bolt sounds like a real Jamaican (pretty incomprehensible ), not like the normal, 10 years on a US "sports scholarship" type Afro-Caribbean athlete.

Shame GB doesn't have any world class 200m runners anymore - and our 100m guys aren't that great either.

Was good to see Palace fan Martyn Rooney win the 400m in 44.83 seconds to go 10th on the all-time UK list.

Is it because they're clean?

Re: Rooney, saw him being interviewed yesterday and he said he lives 2 miles down the road from Crystal Palace. Anyone know where exactly he lives?

Flo-Jo's 200m record is absolutely outrageous.

The long jump seems to get stuck. First Bob Beamon for 20 years plus and now Mike Powell, the current one remaining unchanged since 1991.
I'd guess thats actually a healthier position to be in(other than the 80's eastern block records) with reguards the doping than the constant small one ups we see it alot of events. You can look at Johnson and see he was a very unconventional runner, the kind of guywho might only come along every 20-30 years.

Rooney lives around Thornton Heath I believe, his brother is in the year below me and my friend is good mates with his brother (wonder why). When Rooney done the 4x400 relay the school stopped. I werent complaining, beats Geography really.

Can I just drag this quote back up.

There has been nothing shown of any drugs taken.

In the swimming today, they said that after a world record is made, they give a urine sample.

I bet Phelps is always having a leak.

Well even if he does, he can not leave the building until he provides a sample. If he refuses he doesn't get a medal. At least that is my understanding of things - yes I realise you meant that tongue in cheek?

Firstly, an athlete can reap the benfits of drug abuse years after they have stopped taking them.

Secondly, Jamaica don't even have an anti-doping policy and opted out of the Caribbean's Anti-Doping organisation.

But when you break a world record you must provide a test now or it doesnt count, unless Jamaica have created a falsified world record

Food for thought:

Marion Jones never failed a drug test.

Also, the IAAF has been criticised in it's drug testing methods.

Not sure if you are joking... if you are not, what makes you think the average Brit is less likely to take something than any other nationality?

There has been some drivel posted on this thread, mainly by Dancoo; Martina Koch, Ben Johnson and a couple of others were obviously cheating f**kers but most athletes are clean and in my opinion, to criticise them is not right, they deserve respect.

World records are there to be broken; athletes get bigger, faster, improve technically, have better diets, better minds, better genes, get better financial rewards, more fame etc etc

Did runners 40, 50, 60, 70 years ago get accused of cheating? Just because a very small minority have cheated in the last couple of decades, the average person, who probably knows very little about the sport, training methods and nutrition, feels qualified to doubt their hard-earned achievements. Nonsense.

Precisely, even more likely that it was clean.
