Paging Ato Boldon !!!!!! aka De Golden Boldon Thread
« on: November 25, 2005, 04:55:33 AM »
Ah see Ato Boldon onboard now, so let me get de chance to say, welcome pardna...

Ah have a few questions for you...

Ato some quick questions here.
By Sam, with help from Flex.


Whats your thought on that trator Kerron Clement.

Is Mark Findlay any good, the English born who wants to run for T&T.

Is Darrel Bown over-rated or injury killing him.

Are you half Jamaican, if so, why did you choose to run for T&T.

How good is Marc Burns and Jacy Harper.

Is Asafa Powell the real deal or a one hit wonder.

Do you think Fana Ashby and Kelly-Ann Kaylene Baptiste will break any records or capable of doing so.

Whats your take on youths Renny Quow and Jamil James.

Do track get enough support from the government in T&T.

Are you living in T&T now.

What are you planning to do now seeing that you have retired.

If you get the chance to coach our track team would you take that position.

Before you ran for T&T were you ever approached by the US to run for them seeing that you were a resident there.

Why did you retire from track. Was it injury or age, because Frankie Fredricks was pretty old and won Silver.

How come your training pardna Maurice Green became so fast all of a sudden and you were faster at first.

Are you going to Germany to see T&T play.

Seeing that your wife is an American, does she like T&T.

Are you full time now with CMC 3 and where is that station based.

Does Adidas still sponsor you seeing that you dont run anymore.

How did you meet Zidane, I saw a video with you and him.

Do you think T&T will get any Gold in the next Olympics.

Whats your thoughts on the Soca Warriors Online and why did you decide to join us.

I visit your site and you have a section with top 10's, how come FIFA is not on your list seeing that you are a football (soccer) fan.

He will be the next WR holder in that event.  He is still very young.  Best thing could have happened was that cut arse in worlds.  It will fire him up.
Mark who?
Darrel Brown is not over-rated he is just finding out what everyone in track knows.  Good/great junior means nothing at senior level.  Next year and 07 will tell if he is the real deal.
Of course I was born in Trinidad.  My mother is Jamaican.
Marc Burns is who my coach wanted, not Darrel.  He thinks that, long term, Marc will be better.  He is seldom wrong, but we will see.  Jacey Harper is a great relay leg when he is in form.
Asafa is the real deal but until he actually wins a medal of some color he will be seen as one who can't run when it counts.  Gatlin is the man until further notice.
Fana will not break any records that matter in my opinion. I have never been as impressed as I was by a young female sprinter since I saw Kelly-Ann in Tobago at Carifta this year....the girl is the only local female I have seen who understands the "drive phase" completely.  If she really masters that she will be our most succesful female sprinter ever.
Quow and James will only be as successful as the programs they are in. College can ruin good athletes sometimes because the coach is about the team and not the individuals.  If you ask me to bet I wouldn't bet that Ian Morris' 44.21 record is in any danger from either of the 2.
Track gets a good deal more support than previously, but given our record we should get the most money.  I cheer for the Warriors but they are #51 in the world.  The 4 x100 relay was #2 this year.  That isn't a bias, it's a fact.
I don't live in TnT but I am there so often people think so.  I live in LA but I am home on a monthly basis, almost.
I plan to do everything I get a chance to, now that I am retired.  That's why in 2005 I have done a little bit of everything.  2006 is going to be the year that even those that have had nothing good to say about me for years are forced to say "ok we have to give him his due".  I am going to put TNT on the map bigger than I ever could when I was running.  I want to be the 2005 Jack Warner. LOL
I will not coach TNT track.  I am not a coach and being a runner previously does not automatically qualify you for that position. 
I retired from track becasue it was no longer fun to be constantly injured. I was never the same physically since the drunk ass hit me on the PBR in 2002. 
Maurice Greene was better than I was at 100m, and when he got to my camp it took a little while but he blossomed past me simply because I was under John Smith before him and once we both were coached by hiim, the difference in ability came out.  Maurice's rise was not sudden at all, to those who know the sport. He made the US 100m World Championship team before he got to John Smith in 1996,  in 1995, at 20! 
I will be in Germany to see them, God-willing.
My ex-wife never particularly liked Trinidad, I don't think.
I am not full time with CNC 3.  I don't want no boss, so if I do something, I have to control it fully - as in the case of the Warriors Bahrain special. 
CNC 3 is on the top floor of the Guardian Newspaper building on lower St Vincent Street.
Adidas is still my sponsor until they are sure I am not coming back for Beijing '08
I was at the WC finals in 98 in Paris and Zidane is with adidas.  I used to be a huge fan of that France team that won in 1998.
We could get gold in swimming or Track and Field, possibly.
I have been coming here for years before but never joined.  Now I have done it.  Some real characters in here which means I will fit in well.
How you could have missed football at #2 on my TOP TEN list is beyond me.

P.S. That is definitely not a few quick questions. :-\

Yeah ATO you ended my track carrer that never got started. The first year you came to Trini and raced I was one of your victims.(My firt 100m race)  :devil: You raced in mens category and I was there in your heat and when the gun went off I lifted my head to see the smoke coming out your ass :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: But It's all good I can always tell my friends that adore you here in Germany that I raced against you and thats my claim to athletic fame.  

I love what you did for track & field in Trini.

       Ato keep up the great work that you have done in the past in representing T&T and now being like an ambassador for them! Will the special that aired on CNC 3: "Warriors in Bahrain" be put on a dvd and sold? I live in T&T but I know many of the persons on this site are away and other home-sick trinis abroad really want that special presentation as a memorabilia.

I guess when you go to the WC with the Soca Warriors next year, you will film another special: "The Soca Warriors in the World Cup"? If I there I will point out to you who I am and make sure that me and the other forumites who there make it on that feature too eh. hahaah

Keep up the great work Mr. Boldon, God's speed to you...

I'm impressed with Ato's forthcomingness (if that's even a word) I still go to his website alot its very interesting and I guess i just like these two sites because I can get people's true opinions and not a revised version...Ato thanks for the support of the warriors and thanks for your efforts on the track scene ....I guess I should ask a thing or two about Marc and Darrel...so this would be it......I think Marc is talented and very determined but what i wanna know is is there anyway for him to improve his start significantly because I think it affects his entire race how slow he gets out or is he one of those athletes destined to have a poor start but a good pickup late in the race like carl lewis and do you think darrel is strong enough physically todo the damage we'd like him to do cuz Ive seen him lose it in the last 40 a few times....thanx and  biggup

ps I watch yuh lil clip look like yuh have a decent lil post up game lol
