Shame about the 100m drugs allegations, and no Johan Blake.
Should be even more of a procession for Bolt...

I know hardly anything about athletics. But how can they have a World Championships? Surely the Olympics is the world championships. If you have an Olympic 100M champion and a World 100M champion, who outranks who?

I tend to agree. They should all be allowed to compete doped up.

If you look into the chemicals these guys are illegally using. There is no drug that will just make you run faster.
The drugs only assist their recovery after working out. Either by easing the pain of torn muscles, or dilatingblood vessels so their muscles get fixed quicker, Meaning they can train harder, more often and recover faster.

Still it is amazing how The athletes who dont take these performance enhancers can compete at the top.
They must be genetically programmed to tolerate higher pain.
