100m bolt may have had a bad start, but he seems to have a habit of doing this and I think it's just a strategy on his part to psyche the opponents.

It's going good so far.

tbh I think he just has shit starts, compared to shorter 100m runners .. which are still amazing starts for someone of his build. I mean, I don't think he necessarily is going 100% on those starts yet, doesn't need too.. but still, he's had tons of bad starts. When he has a perfect start, he's in the ~9.5X-9.6X's lmao!

WVN looked ridiculous @ 400m.. so easy for him. Bolt-level easiness.

:ibrunning:

YESSSS!!!!!!!! I am so happy for gatlin and feel bad for bolt. I didn't know gatlin had it in him but he managed to do it. It's just like the marquez win over pacquiao.

Gatlin deserved it over the negative booing from the crowd, this is a stick it moment to the crowd for booing him. Also that win he almost had before messing up and bolt winning, now gatlin finally wins and I am so pleased for him.



EDIT: I just found bolt came third, coleman second. Ah well Bolt still a legend but so happy for gatlin.

^^ i'm staying away from it until i see it, but i've heard about it from several different sources.

awesome screen cap of Gatlin .. I basically write off cheaters forever .. but, it is impressive if he's clean & got this W, at his "old age", and was able to defeat the King. Can't really hate on that.. plus he gets booed/shitted on all the time -> if he paid his dues and has stayed clean, that has to really suck.



Almaz_Ayana is a beast. self coached apparently too. Destroyed everyone yet again, in the women's 10k.

some quotes from mo on his recent 10k win

http://www.bbc.com/sport/athletics/40834447

Quote
"It was one of the toughest races of my life," said Farah. "The guys gave it to me, it wasn't about Mo, it was about 'how do we beat Mo?'

"You had the Kenyans, the Ethiopians, the Ugandans, everybody working as a team against me. Fair play to them, they worked it hard and they chucked everything at me.

"At one point in the middle of the race I wasn't thinking I was going to lose, but I thought 'this is tough, this is tough'."

Seemed like Bolt was not sharp at all for his final meet (?). That >10 sec race in quarterfinal was a bit bad for someone like Bolt.


gatlin is such a tank! like a rhino .... strong and fast

I don't personally like drug cheats, but after paying his dues especially after the media keep attacking him as 2 time drug cheats, when the first one wouldn't really count it as intentional, but still you have to be very strict in everything. But after all he has done you can't keep attacking him.

I think the blame should be placed more the people giving the punishment that it should be life time ban, but the hard thing is to know he did it intentionally.

But ye good work from gatlin, usain has a good reaction but because he is tall the lean makes him slow down, so maybe coming upright a bit earlier may help him?

Coleman I don't know if he has the capabiities of getting below sub 9.8. But we'll see.
onto the relays for bolt.

Michael johnson on point about how bbc media has potrayed gatlin as the villain since he became a threat to bolt in 2015 even when in 2012 he was not booed. But This steven cram a commentator of bbc sport will continue with his hate against gatlin.
When will they learn this is not going to help clean the sport.

USA again take the gold in the 100m womans final, I thought that elaine thompson would win it and in a big way, but something happened and elained just backed down and slowed down. But so close between bowie and talou, great race. Just like gatlin got the win bowie gets in a win and what a lean to win it.
Just perfect. Great job.

Reporter asked Bolt, gatlin, coleman in the press conference "The times this year seems to be way a bit slow compared to before, could this have anything to do with the more strict anti doping policies" and i'm paraphrasing

and bolt and gatlin became quite defensive and annoyed.....  :ninja:

I thought it was a pretty good question.....

Personally I think it's very optimistic to believe that Bolt never doped. Not saying he definitely did but I wouldn't blindly cheer on Bolt and boo Gatlin, that seems unfair. Both are great athletes though that's for sure.

Absolutely love watching Coleman. I could literally watch his starts over and over again. He just beasts out of the blocks and its amazing.
GOALS

Squat 340x3               Power clean 265

BP 225x3                    100m - 11.5

I remember that. It makes you think of the times of around 9.6 seconds and now its stuck at 9.9, 9.8 best. But you can see why they would be defensive cos they are indirectly being accused of doping.

But I guess anyone would be annoyed if they were accused of doping even though they weren't so who knows, we take it with a grain of salt.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wk_EAQooa24" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wk_EAQooa24</a>

it's a fair question for sure.. maybe not to bolt/gatlin/coleman in that moment, but, definitely a fair question overall.. times were getting insane, everyone running under 9.8, with 9.7's and 9.6's, even 9.5's for bolt.. all of that "fire" seemed to disappear. Now, a 9.8 and even a low 9.9 is back to winning everything.

so many people over the years got busted, including Tyson Gay & Gatlin himself, as well as several of Bolt's teammates.

Bolt's response was a bit over the top..



I still hope he's clean.

Also, Blake kinda just "shows up" in 2012.. :ninja:
