metalmonkey to the rescue
Watching the medal ceremony for the 400m Womens Hurdles and it is quite astounding how they are truly terrorising the field. Gwan Jamaica in best jafakean accent! I need to get me some hard food :hmm:

It is a given as far as I am concerned that they are going to win the 400m Womens relay as well and although I am not a gambler I am so tempted :p

I love the way that the yanks have been totally pwnd by the Jamaicans in the sprints, which they usually regard as their property. Priceless! :D

As for the drug rumblings .... whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? You can't blame the athletes for the failure of their authorities to get proper local checks into place. :rolleyes:

It's the Jamaicans way of getting revenge on the Americans for colonialising large parts of their Island with 5 * hotels and shops where you can only pay for things in US dollars.

Fuck they were fast in the men's relay today. Bolt and Powell are the two fastest men on the planet no doubt about it.

The Jamaicans have not come out of nowhere, they have a proud tradition of male and female sprinters. It's almost the national sport

The improvement in their times over the last 12 months are astonishing...


And no accredited out-of-competition drug testing programme?


:hmm:


Woof

Jamaica do not have a national doping agency. But all the Jamaican elite are tested by the IAAF and, according to a piece in today's Daily Mail

"only the United States, Russia, Greece and Kenya have been tested more in the past 12 months. In the 7 days before .. Beijing, 32 Jamaicans were tested, Powell 4 times"

Colin Jackson has spoken several times about how 30,000 people squeeze into stadiums in Kingston to watch 12 and 13 year olds in the junior championships in Jamaica.

They've shown video of the championships and the stadium was heaving[/]

It probably *is* the national sport, certainly their most successful in the past few years.

They have a proven pedigree in sprinting. Hardly 'Out of nowehere.'

:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: * 100 ^^^^^

Frankly, at some of the people posting on this thread, I mean the audacity of suggesting possible drug use in some cases - especially in the case of Bolt who skipped the last 10m of the 100m and yet still breaks a world record. I mean come on and a for fucks sake for good measure thrown in.

Did Michael Johnson use drugs?

Did Sergei Bubka?

Has Michael Phelps?

They were/ are all exceptional athletes, light years beyond their peers.



Usain Bolt has been gaining attention since he was a 16 years old- as I said, his success is not out of nowhere.

He first set his world record in New York back in March this year. Do you suppose he hasnt been tested many, many times between then and now?
When do you think he would have time to dope with EPO, train, and for it to leave his system before being tested again?

Bolt has improved his time by a WHOLE SECOND in JUST SEVEN YEARS

We don't need positive tests, it's obvious :cool:
