    I case nobody noticed, the video indicates "2006" at the very beginning, meaning that Johnson would have been about 44 years old when this was made, not 50.

    Ben Johnson is the greatest scapegoat in track and field history.

    What is it with most ex sprinters looking, wel, podgy when they get older? If he is 44 in this video he isn't in amazing shape. Linford Christie looks much better!

    And what about my girl, Heike?

    She's 49 in this video (50 in December!) looking lean and in excellent shape.

    Unless you're being snarky, I have no idea what this means.

    She does look quite good! Some people just have good genes!

    Those exercises look like the kind of things they make you do in physical therapy. They look easy on paper until you start actually doing them.
