Firstly the 2.00 wind for Gay compares with Bolt who either had little or no wing or a slight wind against in his runs; the 2.00 wind is always suspect to me anyway. TG is not in Bolts class though an outstanding sprinter.
As for TG's groin, I am utterly sceptical about how badly it has affected him.
There is evidence, despite the nonsense talked by the GAoO, that Flo Jos so called 10.49 was illegal. The TFN site for the last 2 years ages has had fans, athletes, officials who were in all the right places that day and as Americans posting on their site it is obvious from their comments that the so called NIL wind was rubbish.
has been also strong photographic evidence on TFN Forum showing the wind blowing strongly and I somehow doubt that the GAoO was there at the time. One or two people present on the straight at the timme of FloJos so call 10.49, have referred to the probability that the wind gauge was f**ked. Rather like the Luffbra wind gauge when GAoO 's fav athlete ran 11.05.
Flo Jo was as clean as my younger grandsons nappies when he was a tiddler.
1988 was the high point of drug taking in the Athletics world and the Yanks were never going to allow others to gain advantage at the Olympics.
Many of the posters on this Forum know full well, if they read the posts and home pages on TFN Forum, that the Americans in their own way were just as guilty as the East Europeans and Russians of cheating. I trust FloJo's performances as much as the East German world records and some of the Russian crap of the Eighties, deed I do.
Right throughout the Cold War period there were plenty of right wing fanatics in America, on USOC and USATF, as it is now called, who did not bother about cheating on a world stage and the evidence presented by informed opinion is very convincing.
The chief anti doping officer in America in the Eighties/ Nineties blew the whole thing open and was given a deal which forbade him from making the doped athletes story public in the future. This year once again the whole tawdry story has raised its ugly head.
So Jav Sam, yes, you are right Gay is not yet and never is likely to be in Bolt's class. If the public pressure on UB is bearable for him and he does not screw up, he will run sub 9.50 and and sub 19.10.
Congrats to Jeter on her legal world best time by an athlete who appears to be clean in a performance this year with no phony 0.00 wind reading.
Only ill informed frigging idiots can doubt the Jamaican's superiority.
