    This is Shelly's best season ever. It is also the first year is she out of school and thus, she was able to fully train and have a complete season.

    Re: Doping Study 29% in World Champs

    At the end of the day this kind of investigations, IMO, is close to meaningless.
    For the simple reason it cannot establish the real magnitude of the doping abuse.
    Minor or big abuse, low frequency...
  6. Re: What does the future hold for Allyson Felix?

    Allyson will recover and can still win a set of medals. Individually the 200m and of cause the relays 4x100m and 4x400m at championships. But it will take more hard work and the right decisions.
  7. Re: What does the future hold for Allyson Felix?

    Allyson Felix has been around on a world level since 2001.
    The universe has been very kind to her, mind you, and the loss recently can only be attributed to herself, how hard it was for us to see....

    You're citing a fact not in evidence. It may well be that those who were truly talented were those who put up good marks outside of the two meets.[/quote]

  9. Re: The 3 best performances of WC are of BOLT

    But comparing Bolt to Bolt gives an unprecedented picture never seen before.
  10. Re: The 3 best performances of WC are of BOLT

    Sure these lists could use an update, but could never even remotely be perfect.
    So then again the problem remains.
    Besides, who's to judge the real clean human performance level?

    Re: chinese womens 1500 records

    Why cheat? In 1993 Liu Dong already ran unbelievable splits. She ran the second part of her round 4 min. 1500m alone in a 3:41 1500m tempo, after the first 800m had been slow.
    Chinese women overran...

  13. Re: The 3 best performances of WC are of BOLT

    Of cause you cannot argue about well-constructed mathematical point lists for rating top performances. Therefore Bolt deserves to be on top of the list, but of cause far from being on top of his...
  14. Re: ¶Brussels m100 (non-DL)—Bolt 9.76 (WL)

    I've been informed, that this wasn't so to speak an official research with a follow-up rapport, but that the small team (with also former trainer of Kim Gevaert) grasped the opportunity of having...

    His premise is that you can't have a big drop in performance and be clean. News to all those pre-60s athletes who routinely had big drops. It happens. (not trying to be naive, either)[/quote]

    In pro cycling nowadays every (odd) outstanding performance is scrutinized to the bone, be it for the right reason or not, but in track & field it seems to be a big happy family. 8-)
  20. Re: anybody have split times for last races of Blake?

    With respect to the 9,92s race you could do a (partly) comparison with the splits of Bolt in Daegu 2011;

  25. Re: HD on Bolt, Isi, Jones, Flo Jo, JJK and 8m

    I can imagine her thoughts about Flo Jo. But she uses a rather peculiar argument to underline her thoughts: her training age to reach 7,48m, which she states as 10 years in contrast with the short...
