    I see.

    So we're back to the: "paedophiles have goatees" argument.

    Well, that one's been dealt with. You'll have to come up with something better, I'm afraid.

    :p

    Woof

    Er...I give you 4th place for not having read me aknowledging the possibilities of something dodgey earlier in this thread....I was being sarcastic because with the arguments made on this thread every single athlete could be taking drugs....but until we catch them doing it, we have to give them the benefit of the doubt.

    Just explain what out of season drugs would help a sprinter go faster without building muscle. Or how an endurance regimen would help a sprinter. :D

    That's established.

    But ymu seems unwilling to acknowledge that not all paedophiles have goatees, and that just seems silly - bound to wind people up.



    I know.

    Goatees!

    :rolleyes:


    Woof

    So you don't know. You just feel sure that if a baseball pitcher or distance runner can gain benefit from an endurance regimen, a sprinter can as well.

    No matter that Bolt is lanky compared to Christie or Johnson or even fucking Jones - fuck, he's lanky compared to any honest world-class sprinter, let alone the cheats - no, there must be some implausible out-of-season drug regimen he's using to get, erm, really really lanky.

    Just like Marion Jones, who still has never tested positive and yet received her first 4-year ban in 1992 (overturned with the help of Johnny Cochrane).

    I disagree, Rutita. I think that given history, undetectable substances, an imbalance in the rigour of various countries O-O-C testing regimes and the HUGE incentives to win - knowing you will be competing against cheats - it makes sense to assume that everybody's doin' it.

    As I quoted a pundit earlier on the thread.......



    It's time to stop all the drug-testing nonsense and just allow peeps to take what they want. At least then we'd have the comfort of knowing that it's a competition for chemists, not athletes - rather than just deeply suspecting this.


    :)


    Woof

    No.

    And neither do you.

    But the suspicions are valid.


    Move along please.

    No goatees here.

    :)

    How the fuck can suspicions be valid when you have absolutely no proof.

    Talk about a kangaroo court...

    No accredited O-O-C drug testing?

    :hmm:


    There was no proof against Marion Jones until she admitted using.


    :(


    Woof

    exosculate a stagger with a beat

    Sorry I only skim read the last bit.

    Am I right to say all paedophiles without goatees definitely take drugs?

    Or have I grasped the wrong end of the baton?

    He's shaved it off now. So it's impossible to know about the drugs.

    :(

    It's a consequence of your argument that were Bolt's times less exceptional, you would be more inclined to believe he was doping.

    That is indeed perverse logic.

    That's a valid observation. I'm not arguing whether he is doping or not, I don't believe he is :)

    If he has 'no muscles to speak of', how on earth is he getting to the finishing line? :confused:

    He doesn't look 'pumped' but is certainly muscular, especially considering he has a 6 foot 5 frame. He's probably 15 or 16 stone and very little of it is fat. I would assume he has a greater muscle mass than any of his fellow competitors.

    oh well I'd be completely wrong there :oops: he's 86kg (13 and a half stone) according to wikipedia! That is pretty light for someone as tall as him for sure. Asafa Powell is 2kg heavier

    Bolt, the fastest Human Being on the planet. It seems very esoteric to me, as human speed has become possibly the least important attributes in terms of success, not applying to Bolt of course.
    I'm not even sure if short distance speed would have been that important in the first Olympic games, marathon running clearly would have been for the messaging system and that, but I dunno, weird, I was thinking grease pig catching may be more entertaining, but I suppose it's got to many random factors with wiley swine etc. Erm...
    The running man, that was a fucking great idea.
