'No smoke without fire' seems to be one lesson.

At the risk of turning the topic in a different direction, I've always wondered about Usain Bolt. A hero to so many (including myself) but dreading one day a 'truth' coming out that shatters that status.


I can't believe in anyone that is a product of a country that didn't have proper OOC testing and where the world dominating sprint teams lead coach happened to split roles between the ADA and coaching.

i can't believe that anyone would be so stupid to combine a national team with a commercial team and not provide any oversight or audit....oh...that'd be us then...
