In trying to determine who is the fastest runner, all runners have to have an equal playing field. Introducing a man who needs something artificial attached to his body in order to run is not an equal playing field. It is not a fair comparison.
So, like Sureshs said, you completely took out pretty much the ONLY argument that could maybe have some substance to it, and made your argument that he's not running like a normal person. Just solidifies that your point makes no sense.
