But yeh I guess it's just bannanas and yams that's the reason Jamaicans are soo fast!

I should remember to buy banana's and yam, i think i can use cassava instead of yam, it might be better alternative

injectable yams, the best kind.

asafa ran 11+ at 17? that seems unbelievable to me considering usa has h.s'rs running low 10's their senior year, then you never hear of them anymore.. maybe they go to football, i dont really follow them unless they show up in the trials/olympics.. do u have a link to his 11+ times at 17? just curious.. like is there official track meet info out there or is it something that's been passing around by other means?

In 2000, he represented his school at the ISSA High School Championships in the 100 and 200 meters. His times of 11.45 and 23.07 seconds were not enough to see him progress on from the first round but, by then, the track and field bug had bit him. The next year he competed again in the same championships and improved his times. This time around he was watched by Stephen Francis who spotted talent and offered to coach Powell.

2000
Powell represented his school Charlemont High at the ISSA High School Championships. On April 11 he finished fourth in the Class 1 200 m, in 23.07 with a -1.7 m/s headwind. On April 13, he finished third in his heat of the Boy's Class 1 100 m, recording 11.45 with a -2.3 m/s headwind. Neither time recorded in the heats was quick enough to advance him to the next round of competition.

Asafa Powell is one of the fastest human beings on the planet. He held the 100 m World record between June 2005 and May 2008 (9.77, 9.74). He was awarded the title of Male World Athlete of the Year in 2006.
In 2000 Powell ran 11.45 and 23.07 in the 100m and 200m respectively at the ISSA High School Championships and neither of them was enough to advance him to the next round.
The following year he won the Jamaican junior title in 10.50 seconds.
During an Italian tour he showed his talent internationally in 2002 with a best of 10.12 in Rovereto.
He won his first Jamaican senior title in 2003.
He ran his first sub-10 seconds 100m in 2004 and he did it eight more times during the season.

I could maybe imagine it if he was really raw, hadn't done much sprinting before and had a few fundamental errors, could definitely take off a second...but yeah, it did raise eyebrows at the time I remember when he started running sub-10 every race.

Yeah I mean natural maturity just from growing older would increase speed + weight training+good coaching/technique and all that but I still don't believe all that improvement was PED free. It's the same with Shelly Ann Fraser she got the same coach as Asafa and she dropped her time by almost a second as well.
Edit- Actally now her PR is 1.04 seconds faster but in that 2 year period, which i posted about before her improvement was almost a second after the 2 year stagnation.

yeah but you'd need to drink the equivalent of 5+ cups of coffee in an hour to hit the limit.
