    He's such a beast... but I bet he could do it 9.48. If he hadn't slowed down at the Olympics- (everyone gets mad at him for that)- he might've done it there.

    Who calls, they are all juiced anyway. The good chemists arent smart enough to keep up with the bad ones. He is obviously just more talented than the others who are doing the same thing. The same way Marion Jones was, but poor women was made a scapegoat.

    Graf doesnt compete in the sprint events at the World level. If she were she would juice as well.

    That was ridiculous, he beat Gay by a big margin and Gay set the American record!

    Bolt = GOAT?

    No doubt the greatest sprinter ever. He could probably win the 400 if he really decided to train for it.

    Just because you have no morals doesn't mean nobody has them.

    UB doesn't "juice."

    Whatever, continue your delusions. I didnt begrudge him for it, like I said all top sprinters juice, as much as some love to live in a fantasy world and accuse those who arent blind as not having "moral" somehow, ROTFL!

    Just because someone is one of the greatest athletes in their sport doesnt mean their juiced.

    Other wise Steffi was probably juicing as well.

    Sprinting is not just like any other sport, and is absolutely nothing like tennis. Anyway I am not going to defend my realism any futher. Those who want to live in your little Saintsville go right ahead, I dont care. Like I said Bolt is just doing what everyone at the highest level of world sprinting, and he is obviously more talented than the rest. Good for him, he is probably already the greatest sprinter ever.

    He can't hit a serve, backhand or volley. So why are we talking about him?

    So he can stare at her titles? :)

    What a name for this guy.

    Bolt, like lightning.

    Like a baseball player named Homer, or when Bush selected his two last secretary of educations with the last names Paige and Spellings.

    Usain Bolt is a better athlete than any tennis player ever. Probably thinks tennis players are wimps.

    I dont know why tennis fans would be so fond of him though. most of his race I never seen any sportsmanship towards the other competitors after the race. I remember the olympic president was pissed about that. I never seen much more after today but I could be stodd corrected.

    Who is the better athlete--Usain Bolt or LeBron James? They are both vying for world's greatest athlete.

    I'm not saying you're immoral for saying UB juices, I'm saying you're immoral for effectively saying "If I was a sprinter I'd juice too." That's an immoral statement, and Usain Bolt and many other sprinters don't think like that.

    Usain Bolt has really magnified speed. I mean how fast can this guy get..Is it possible that he can run in the 9.3's??? Is that a possibility?

    This Usain Bolt guy sucks. No running ability whatsoever, only succeeding because, you guessed it, weak era. He would not be top 10 in the world if he raced in the 90's.

    Weak era? This guy can easily beat Maurice Green,Tim Montgomery(even on juice)Kim Collins,Ben Johnson, Justin Gatlin and other 100m champions in their primes.He's just unstoppable.

  37. Lebron James?? Come on man! If you are big in America that doesnt mean automatically you are big in the world! The Americans thinks they have the best of everything, look at the Baseball-playoff "world-series", they are NOT the best in the world.

  38. Weak era is just plain stupid, 9,58 is the fastest time ever by far. Theres no such thing as eras in 100 m, its you against the clock.

    Exactly, you simply cannot compare different sports. How can you say that LeBron, even though he is great at his sport, is the best athlete of them all. It is just foolish. What about Lin Dan, Michael Phelps, Isinbayeva (spelling), Kinessa Bekele, Federer, Christiano Ronaldo, A-Rod (baseball), Contador (cycling), Tiger Woods and all of these guys for example, who also seem to dominate their specific sport: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2008-08/23/content_9649643.htm ?

    The best combination of physical talent, technique and PEDs in history of mankind = 9,58 S.

    I still don't understand how all of those guys can look in a camara and say "I don't take PEDs" with a straight face..

    no no no. what bolt is doing isn't dominating his sport, like holding 3 out of 4 of the slams or scoring 40 goals in a season.

    he's on another planet to the rest of the competition. he can beat them any time anywhere any conditions because he is utterly superior and makes it look easy. it's the equivalent of scoring not 40 goals in a season but 60. it's holding all 4 slams and not dropping a set. Woods never won every event he played in in a year. that's what he's doing. these things are possible in the 100m in a way they are not in tennis or football- still, if you're faster, you're faster, that's it. he knows he can beat anyone over the distance.

    As someone who knows nothing about sprinting, I feel qualified to criticize him because I'm in a tennis forum. Tennis is a sport, sprinting is a sport. Tennis players moves their feet so do sprinter. So, I'm fully qualified.

    Bolt has some serious technical flaws which is obvious to anyone who is as brilliant and perceptive as I am.

    1: Bolt needs to bend his knees.
    2: Keep his head still. Dont' look away from the finish line.
    3: His arm motion is stiff, he needs to ultilize his kinetic chain more.
    4: Bolt needs to work on his transition from defense to offense.
    5: He needs to improve his mental toughness, to believe in himself more.
    6: He needs to start closer to the starting line. I see that he's way defensive, standing 2mm behind the starting line.

    Anyways, I don't want to make him feel bad so I'll stop but these are obvious weaknesses that I'm surprised his coaching staff are not fixing.

    If Bolt is too proud to listen to me, well that's is his lost because I could me him a much better sprinter.

    Now, if I wanted to be a sprinter, I would run faster than him but I don't want to.

    Bolt is just Insane!!!

    He never even used to do the 100 m. He was a 200m and 400m runner. Thats why he technique for the 100 m is not as good as others, and belive it or not he is getting better at it, which makes it even more AMAZING!!!

    BOLT = GOAT!!!!
