The Final Showdown for Bolt: 4X100m Relay This Saturday

The Final Showdown for Bolt: 4X100m Relay This Saturday

Justin Gatlin has regained that title again after holding off the iconic Jamaican in the 100-meter final of the World Championships of Athletics last Saturday in London.

He lost the 100m dash last Saturday in his final individual race, settling for a bronze. Normally I get better through the rounds.

Alas, we now have that problem. It's too bad that, far from being the fun and lovable guy Bolt always was, Lewis was always an arrogant and surly jerk. It was his last race before hanging up his running shoes for good. To make matters worse for the 56,000 in attendance, the spoiler was none other than Justin Gatlin-the veteran USA sprinter who has served not one, but two doping suspensions. However, this time, he wasn't able to overcome his faster competitors, although a photo was required to determine the place of the finishers. When announced at heats, spectators booed Gatlin.

"I'm just showing respect", said Bolt.

Michael Johnson, a former world champion, stated that Gatlin was being jeered because of the way the media had presented him to the public.

Seven series of True Blood were broadcast between 2008 and 2014, which focused on supernatural events in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana.

"I think he's really changed the sport, he's brought a lot of excitement, he's a performer and we can all just appreciate it, everything he's done and given to this sport", she said at a pre-competition conference. Usain Bolt OJ and Sir Mo Farah, living legends, and thank them for all the great memories they have provided on the track and the inspiration that they leave for all to cherish.

"For me, when I took my kids to the track that was lovely".

In the wake of Saturday's boo fest, it's time for a refresher. So, it's not uncommon for an athlete to consume a "prescription drug" that is also a performance enhancer. He has not publicly confessed to doing so.

Gatlin has served two suspensions for doping offences. The New Yorker had been taking Adderall since childhood - a drug which contains amphetamine and is used to combat attention deficit disorder - and in 2001 was found to still have some of it in his body when competing. His effort was all the more impressive as the race was run under incessant rain which lashed the Olympic Stadium throughout the day, forcing a drop in temperature to below 15 degrees Celsius.

She was maintaining Jamaica's firm eight-year hold on the 100 that began at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

Twenty-three-year-old Jereem Richards of Trinidad and Tobago won bronze in the men's 200-m finals. The AAA expressed concern (rather wistfully, it now seems) that "Mr. Gatlin's reputation not be unnecessarily tarnished" since he was guilty of, at most, a "paperwork violation". In his defense, Gatlin said that he had been tested 35 times, before and after the Kansas relays, and that the 2006 result was an aberration. The list of banned substances is only getting bigger and bigger. Whetstine denied the charges.

And that means a pathetic attempt to rout cheats from athletics is once more in the spotlight.

Since he first ran the blue riband shorter event in 2007, he has run 54 100m races, excluding heats, and won all but six. However, barring a confession or video evidence, an accusation of sabotage is very hard to prove; hence, this Panel member also agreed that suspension was the right course of action.

Those who know him well insist he is still the same athlete who once upon a time jumped off bridges for a bet and occasionally got into mischief.

That's why suspending Gatlin was the right thing to do. Here in the United Kingdom, it is the home of athletics. It might also remind them that the future is not looking so glorious.
