Just an opinion.

You can call this an editorial, but in your links Conte even stated he didn't have proof. The only tangible evidence we have are negative tests from Bolt. While I do agree with the stakes (monetarily) runners face, the penalties for doping are harsher in track than most sports. I seriously don't think anyone juicing would eat McDonald's before the 100.

Others may juice, I just don't think Bolt's one of them.

Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

Bolt doesn't look like a juicer and his race history doesn't really reflect that of a doper. Really no good reason to think he is. Jamaica's setup has just been perfected to find and cultivate their best athletes into sprinters. Its their national sport now....or you could choose to believe a tiny carribean nation with limited resources has the best doping program outshining the US and all other far more well equiped nations.

Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

well, brian mitchell was talking about how all the runners used to take rat posion before races to improve their fast twitch muscles... that's a weird thing to think about.

Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

Anyone else see the crap that the judges tried to pull on Aly Raisman last night during the balance beam finals? A near-flawless performance and they tried to deduct 1.4 from her, a huge amount of deductions...you get a 1.0 point deduction for falling off the beam and she didn't even come close. This put her in 4th-place.

Bela Karolyi was in the stands SCREAMING and waving to appeal...so her coach did. The appeal basically forces the judges to watch the video and make sure they gave her credit for all of the elements or deducted something the should not have, which they clearly did one or both. Her more-accurate score came back and she won the bronze.

They were trying to screw us big time. My wife even said, "look at all of the judges watching the video, they're ALL ASIAN!"

Guess who won gold and silver? Yep, China.

I gave up on Tapatalk a while back. It's crap.

It was on my cellphone a couple of days back, but I do remember the signal being very bad. Not sure why I just kicked in today

When Monkeydad, of all people, mocks you for a duplicate post...sigh
