    The context was the 100, so at similar ages, Boling is indeed 'superior'. Bolt was 20 before he made his mark in the 100.
    I do agree, however, that what Bolt had accomplished overall at 18, was superior.

    It's beyond ridiculous to expect Boling to exceed Bolt in anything. Let's just appreciate a rare talent as it unfolds.

    Yeah, there is no way Boling could ever exceed Bolt in the LJ... that is ridiculous!

    That is exactly the point I was trying to make.

    Exactly. The percentage of the human population that is not Usain Bolt (excluding Usain Bolt) is 100 percent. :-)

    Woods had won 3 US Amateurs by his age and the Williams sisters both turned pro at 14 with the younger having a Major in the back pocket by his age...........you totally over estimate Boling's following........but anyway never mind......
