200m race in Brussels

Post by Tinman » Fri Sep 16, 2011 3:42 pm

Nearly a world record in the 200m, and an American record in the 200m.

Blake's running form looked so smooth!

Is sub 19 possible for either Bolt or Blake in the next few years?

Yes, with a legal tailwind at the maximum limit, it is possible.

I must say, to be frank, I am not convinced that those guys are clean. I am hopeful that they are, but I just don't know. My gut is 80% clean, 20% they are not; at least not at parts of the year.

Yet, I think bank to the 1960's of Tommie Smith. He ran 220 yards on a straight away, cinder track, in 19.6 seconds. That's 19.49 seconds. On curve, that's probably 19.65 seconds. I do not think Bolt and Blake are more than a tenth or two of a second faster than Rocket Tommie.

I've heard that US athletes must be available for drug testing 365 days a year, regardless of where they are.  Is that true, and is that the same in other countries like Jamaica?
