    Usain Bolt

    How can you not love the man.
    Greatest sports star ever?
    He's certainly up there.
    Shame he didn't get the fairytale ending.

    Totally agree.
    I can't believe that it's 5 years to the day since I saw him win the 100m Olympic gold in London.
    Not happy to see Gatlin win, I just think it's morally wrong.

    A shame it wasn't the result he deserved especially losing to a drugs cheat. Definitely the greatest athlete of all time and we'll never see anyone of his ilk again

    He should have been banned for life after the 2nd offence imo.
    But he wasn't & if he's won fairly today then FairPlay.
    But I also wasn't happy to see him win.

    How do you know this?
    Someone also said they'd never see anyone like Mo Farrah again in their lifetime.

    I don't but to win as many Olympic and world golds as Bolt would seem to be a hard legacy to follow and these athletes only come around once in a very long time and I doubt I'll see anything to resemble his (or Farah's) dominance again

    If golf was run like athletics....

    Imagine, some some shooting 72 and handing in a 66 and winning The Open. Twice.

    Silly eh?

    Gatling is a disgrace. He says people make mistakes - yes they do, but NOT twice.

    Re: Usain Bolt

    Gatlin is just a scapegoat for a sport lacking credibility and rife with drug taking for at least 5 decades. Seems like people think if they boo him it somehow makes up for all the endless misdemeanors starting with Ben Johnson in Seoul but carried out by the East Germans and others years before that.
    Personally I think it's very unpleasant from a British crowd to boo at stadium level a winning athlete and Steve Cram's commentary at Rio when Bolt beat Gatlin was shameful imo, it's not a pantomime. Bolt had the good grace to congratulate him and say a few decent words too yesterday.
    Bit hypocritical when there have been loads of British drug cheats in athletics like Dwain Chambers, Linford Christie Christine Ohurogu (suspected) who didn't get the same treatment and countless other high profile international athletes like Marion Jones and Flo-Jo (alleged) allowed cheat and not get stripped of all their medals, never mind all those who didn't get caught either some or all of the time they were taking PEDs.

    Crowd could simply mute their applause imo. Embarrassing viewing.
