Fishs,

Are you more interested in being vindicated...or are you more intersted in uncovering the truth wherever it may lie?

What incentive would Ato have to defend Asafa or Gatlin???

I am not even Trini and I know Ato calls it as he sees it..right or wrong. I am sure all Trinis should know this by now. Indeed, I cant understand how is in politics, as this is a dangerous luxury that politicians are not normally afforded. I guess it is cause for some hope in the political process, eh?

Ato and I have had our differences of opinion, but I have always to respect his integrity in arguments.

 Breds I am not about anything else but a lover of good clean sport be it synchronised swimming or motor gp.
I am old enough to form my own opinions and also big enough to admit when I am wrong. Ato may know these guys personally or not and he has his own reasons for saying whatever he wants or not.

To me this whole sport is mired in some kinda big money making racket at the Grand Prix level.
How could people run in races in one year and then in the same year get caugth in a world cahmpionships or olympics ?

Lets see how these rockets fare in the next Championships or olympics or if they don't end up with some injury before or some scooter accident.

No, remember when I cuss and get on (on my own damn website) reporters come and take my comments and put them as headlines on the sports page.  Then I am the jealous has been.  What a joke. LOL.

I wish someone would do an article on what the times have been since Trials in 2005.  Not a single sub ten for anyone, and places 3 and 4 have not so much as broken 10.20.  Must have been real magic in the stadium that night.

I'd rather be right than PC, as I said then. 

I ent vex.  Apparently Jamaicans are better than us.  Oh, yeah, Bahamas has a 10.0 sprinter now, too.  He got 2nd at CACs

Ato in Jamaica track is taken serious.  in an asafa interview he said high schools in Jamaica has  pre season training. adn they train for champs They have certified track coaches at their top High schools and other schools PE teachers has a track and field background. Crawford mentioned once that Quarrie took him to a primary school meet once and it was packed. Do  high schools in Trinidad dint have a pre season ? just curious.

The Jamaicans are better because of their program and coaches

Nope,

the Jakans are better because they have a far stronger tradition and more internal rivalry.

Back in my time mid 80s to mid 90s, QRC took track and field serious.  Cant think of any other school that did the same.  Track is not big like football in schools back home.  At Pres, there was Sports Day the Friday after Carnival..so nuff men still tight from the long weekend, running and whoever did well represented the school in zonals a few weeks later.  The only men who trained seriously were those attached to a club like Petrotrin and Brooklyn.

What now is that I don't think Gatlin is the only one.  I heard something yesterday which disturbed me about 2 big names.  We'll see.  Could be just rumour but time will tell.

I always wondered about Maurice Greene...not out of any real suspicion but just wondered if Ato suspected or knew anything what he would do since it was his training partner.

The Americans aren't nearly quite as outraged as they should be when their athletes are caught and that doesn't help their reputation.

Nah this ent no magic carpet at all - my magic carpet quote was when 10.4 and 10.5 men all ran 10.1 in the stadium......all the carry on they carry on and was vex with me for saying it, u see none ent run it since - but here is my quote from this week about Darrel from the other thread.

"Nah is early still. I more concerned about Kelly Ann first b4 them - they have endless time and to be honest my first relays used to be awful too esp. if I was coming off of hard hard training since October."

This is a great opener, his fastest opener ever and almost his PR from 4 years ago. It means that this year is looking very, very good for him BUT the biggest thing is this STAY HEALTHY. Asafa is hurting a little and to me if Brown stays healthy he should run 9.9 mid to low this year which I think will win a Worlds Medal.

Now, remember not too high, not too low for fast or not so fast times in between now and then. Osaka is all that matters this year everything else is gravy.

ATO,
I dunno why you bother answer people bout that. The evidence is overwhelming that you called it right. The hopers dont like to hear it, but its not a case of believing, simply a case of going where the evidnce takes us.

Nice opener for DB. The training is paying off well. I believe that Safa is playing possum though, as is Sherone. DB was too in his previous relays...

Dont go from panic and killing him to predicting that massive a drop in time.

Appreciate the path he is on and enjoy the ride.

Too early to tell.

He seems a sure sub10, but sub9.9s is another matter. Time will tell. Wait till we have more evidence.

I have the vid, but I need Thor to host it. PM me with your email addy and I can send it to you.

Wasn't any shut down in that, not with the guy to his left that "close".

I think if he stays healthy all year and is in all the hot races 9.86 is definitely under threat.  Would I bet my money on it? Nah, but it wouldn't be a total shock.  It happens.  Right wind, right night, who knows, but sub 9.9s happen after you have lived in 9.9 land for a little while (or unless you are Fasuba)
