    It is not the newness or radicalness of the thought I take issue with. It is simply an erroneous thought that does not take into account other obvious factors that contributed to the US medal haul...
  2. So, T&FN endorses the front page article that US Medal Haul Reflects Doping Cleanup..

    The article implies, in fact explicitly says, that the US 30 medal haul is an indication that the US is now playing on a 'level playing field'. Normal service, I suppose has been restored now that...

    Yes but VCB was not busted for a diuretic. Testing protocols were not followed and because of that CAS deemed that there was the likelihood of contamination so the case against her was thrown out.

    I am sure that if the substance was not on the banned list that would have been the main thrust of Carter's argument in the case against him. Anyway as I recall an athlete can test positive for a...

    Perhaps they figured the short rest period was likely to have the greatest impact on the oldest sprinter in the lineup, a sprinter that they did not want to claim the blue riband event. That's the...

    The turn around time is usually longer than 1 hr 20 min. This was the shortest in recent memory.

    I want to agree with this. But I think the 100M times were impacted by the 1hr 20 min turn around time between semi final and final (did they not consult with athletes, IAAF on this?) and unlike...

    Bolt has repeatedly said he wants to lower the 200M record. He said in an interview he plans to use the rounds in Rio including the 100M races to ready himself for it, since he missed a bit of...

    I wonder if this case will play out like Sharapova and her positive for melodium. WADA appears to have walked it back a bit when they announced that positive tests for the substance before March 1...

    Not to be picky, but VCB does not have a previous offense or a doping ban. On appeal CAS cleared her because of blatant mistakes in the collection procedure which allowed for possible, and even...

    I see nothing wrong with Bolt being nominated for any of these awards and winning. If I were on the voting panel Bolt would rack up points for having a challenging season and putting it together to...

    The main stream media has in fact been quite asleep on what is arguably the biggest scandal in sports history. The story involves allegations of the President of the governing body of the sport and...

    It is already open but has been renamed Current Events. Heck what else is there to talk about? Just go look at the front page - dope, dope and more dope.

    Coe when he took over as IAAF President just a few months ago praised Diack's “shrewd stewardship”, thanked him for his “unflinching support and wise counsel”, even calling Diack the man who would...

    Daley Thompson said it best. This is the lowest of the low of corruption scandals in sports in recent times...if not of all time. I'm surprised this is not getting more press.

    The rookie move got him a silver medal in Moscow 2013. Then he was hailed as a lion heart and hero. In a high pressure situation you are not always going to get timing right. It will come with more...

    By definition - no. No athlete has taken .11s off the 100M world record in one go - certainly not in the modern era. Certainly prior to Bolt, the 100M world record was within .05s or less of tier A...

    So Lewis went off and got drunk over an allegation made by Exum. Why'd he do that. Unless...? Allegations have been made against every single athlete at one time or the other.

    And as I said in my original post:

    GOAT sprinter - Bolt; track AND field - Lewis.

    So on what basis must they be compared, if not on the body of the work they did or are doing? And in terms of dominance all that one can do is compare the performance of the athlete relative to his...

    Really? Lewis's personal best in the 100M was 9.86s (+1.2w). That's roughly an adjusted time of 9.92s. That's a warm up run for Bolt.

    In the 200m Lewis's personal best is 19.75(+1.5w). That's...

    The 'mistake' that Gatlin made was in response to Bolt closing. It happens just as Bolt is almost even with him. And we have seen him lose form in other championship races as well. Just not in the...
