Do any of you guys care that he is on roids? I think it is naive to think he is not pumping himself up as much as possible. My guess is some of you guys thought Sosa and McGwire were clean as well. The cycling of his performances, the sudden improvement from 10.0 to 9.6. Two 4X100 teams broke the world record tonight and one got silver. Hmmmmmmm? Our women's 4x400 team broke a steroid fueled 30 year old record set by the East Germans by a second last night and we are supposed to beleive these girls are all clean? And don't give me that "People are trianing harder now." People have been running for thousands of years. Maybe the athelets are a little better, but so are the roids. Ben Johsnon thinks he could run a 9.3 or 9.4 with todays roids. Guys just don't go from 10.0 to 9.6 without help. I don't think any fair minded individual can really sit there and not at least question if Bolt (or many many other sprinters) are clean.
Records do fall over time. Competition helps records fall. In every sport athletes are better. Todays athletes are checked more than ever for drugs. Track was drirty 10 years ago, how many records were broken then. If drugs are so rampid in track today the US and Jamaica must be keeping the good drugs all to themself.
He has always been a showboat. I am fine with it. He set a world record in the 100m while celebrating during the last 20m in Beijing. It is absolutely unbelievable what he did in Beijing. He was so much faster than the competition.

It didn't really bother me what he was doing on the track and in interviews. However, wasn't real thrilled to hear him rip Carl Lewis.
Where the **** have some of you been the past four years? They guy COASTED to world records in Beijing, celebrating before he'd even finished.
Props to him for stopping his interview out of respect for the national anthem of another country. But humility when it comes to his own abilities/accomplishments, well, you've been living under a rock if you only just realized he has none tonight.
Everyone is so damn PC these days. I like to see someone who is cocky and can back it up
LOL at insecure 'Mericans bashing Bolt. The guy is a stud, and is being completely honest about his ability. Have any of you ever had people watch/analyze you to even 10% of the degree that people have critiqued Bolt? Things change when people watch you that much. Have any of you grown up in a Jamaica...values can be different between cultures. jeez
The guy wins when everybody is watching. I think his antics are great. He's putting himself out there to fail miserably and just hasn't on the world stage yet.
As cocky as he is he'd be smart to retire while on top...otherwise he's going to be spouting off about how great he is and get beat. It looks so idiotic when people brag and boast then lose
He can talk all he wants i just want to see him give 100% in the finals. Until then i won't be a fan.
