    The Jamacian guy?

    Not sure if that is spelled right but what do you think of the Jamacan that won the 100M and the 200? In the 100 he looked around 2/3's of the way and looked liked a stroll in the park. I've never seen anything like it. Every race he looked like he was just jogging at the end. When he won the 100m he also had a shoe untied. Incredible.
    If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use is the rule.

    Jamaican. He was awesome - don't like that word but I think that this time it's justified

    I wonder what his world record 100m time could have been if he hadn't been looking around during the last 30m?

    It was a bit strange to have one shoe untied. I suppose he could be in danger of clipping at higher power. Do you think he'd get better performance with balanced output? Maybe he needs a shorter run as well? It could depend on the track. Would he get a better time during a replay if he applied Smart Gain?

    /OK, that's enough of that rubbish/

    Audiophiles please chip in...

    I think he purposely slowed down so that he would get more money by setting better world records in the future.

    No, lol. He's good, but not that good.

    100m was not his event, i dont think he was thinking of the WR, just that he had won when 200M is his speciality.

    Or why the US news seem to list the medal table in order of medals, when the IoC list it in order of gold-silver-bronze?...

    At first I thought the thread was about "My Jamaican Guy" by Grace Jones!

    We're in to unilateral action these days. Who cares what the IOC does, we do things our way.

    It's sad, isn't it.
