Big up Richard Thompson,   !!!

I see the guy throwing shit up into the air after the race and had me wondering where the hell did thompson get shit to throw into the air
right after the race.

Bolt is just a Beast hands down. Nuff props to him and jamaica , Nice Gold in fact i think we owe him his wind drag alone probably pull thompson to silver!!!!

cana, burns jus look like he didn't have too good a start out of d blocks. he eh look like he pul up wid any injury. IMHO. honestly, d alternates in d relay team eh nuttin to scream about, but it have one ( ah cah recall d name at present) who was in d team when we broke d old nationaal record las year, he mite be d best replacement (if needed). we crossin we fingers. hopefully it doh have to come dong to dat.

bless!!

well done richard, now on to the relay, bledman could do a decent job if brown cant run and we could still challenge for silver.  Gold may be out of reach for two reasons 1) no brown 2) Bolt

Yo think Bolt running four legs in a relay race?

of course not but when yuh have an anchor like bolt it hard for our first 3 runners (injured brown or half way decent bledman, burns and half way okay armstrong to give us a lead prior to bolt running versus richard..so doh make yuhself a fool.  The funny thng about a relay is anything can happen ,men cabn drop the baton, run out of lane, bad passing but all things equal, jamaica is the team to beat. whether you are a trini, american, yardie or alaskan, anybody with sense and who is realistic will not bet against the yardies right now.  Bolt is capable of running a blasted 9.3 split in a relay or even better.

You didnt say anything bout baton dropping or who faster than who..all u said was Bolt...so it was read as if Bolt alone can beat our relay team

i understand yuh point..my comment was based on all things being equal or held constant (ceteris paribus)..doh get mih wrong with a 'fit" brown we could challenge for gold but right now I can see anybody catching bolt or keeping up with bolt if even at the start of the anchor leg.  To win you will need a hell of a lead prior to Bolt receiving the baton and I will still put my money on bolt.  Right now we witnessing greatness from Bolt.  Phelps is remarkble but bolt is great as well.

I ent losing no mind at all cuz I told him this in April, including him breaking 9.86 which he surprisingly didn't - and everything I have told him, he has believed, and followed, and trusted - right up until last night when we spoke and I told him "*(&^ BOLT focus on your race and don't throw away an olympic medal cuz u are in awe of Bolt....."


Congrats to mih boy yes this feels better than winning it myself because it only confirms what I have known for years - I not studying who feel they know what I know in this track game.  All I interested in is results......all that other stupidness is of no consequence to be honest. Opinion this and who say and who think and who do what 10000 years ago - in a different era.  You saw 9.6 tonight....this is a new day, and old thinking dead.

MONEY talks, BS runs that long arse marathon....I fed up try to talk to those who feel like I don't know what I am doing....whatever.....do you, and watch what happens on this end....oh BTW, where all those who thought that move to anchor was such a bad move? Where are you? Uh huh, thought so.  Three 100m medals in the last 4 olympics.  Accidents happening often!


We about d money as in it SURE, and Richard Thompson is "money" - is my job to keep him that way.  Yuh ent see nuttin yet.

have to reserve some big congrats to Ato too.

Can't overlook his hard work, belief and input in Thompson's rapid and unprecedented success and must be quite something to see it pay off. Really hope yuh continue to play a big part in our athletic program for years to come. And see if yuh could take Brown out of Powell and dem camp.

Now lets see.. ah whole 3 more hours to wait until NBC finally comes around to giving us televised coverage of the race to see if some 'code switching' take place.  :waiting:

Words cannot describe how I feel right now, this is just a dream come true for me," Thompson told BBC Sport.

"I have to tip my hat to Usain Bolt, he's a great competitor, a phenomenal athlete, and there was no way anyone was going to beat him with a run like that.

"But it just feels good to come in here, run in the Olympic Games, my first Olympic Games, and win a silver medal and run a personal best at the same time. I couldn't ask for anything more, thank God."


Well done Richard!  :beermug:
