After a great few years I think we might come back to earth with a bump
Hope I'm wrong but Mo 1 gold and if she's lucky KJT 1 gold

Usain Bolt's last night.
Not one for hype, but the guy is a God. Let's hope he goes out on top.

Do they drug test these events?

Gatlin should not have been allowed back

Mr Gatlin, 100 M winner...

I have no doubt in my mind that drugs users should be banned for life but is there something about it being against restraint of trade or something?

everyone deserves a second chance but not a third chance?

They gave Russia down the banks but not this guy.

its not his fault I suppose as he didn't allow himself to compete, the IAAF did.

what does it tell kids? it tells them you can cheat because the authorities cant an you for life as its against restraint of trade. So even if you take a few years off they will let you back in.

its bad full stop.

I wouldn't have booed him I would just have sat there not clapping...silence is better...

yes...banning whole teams was always a daft idea...not everyone takes drugs but there was evidence that the Russian Federation knew about it and did nothing or precisely the opposite.

I'm sure I've read somewhere that US Athletics will not try the restraint of trade in the courts because they are not sure under US law that they could win and are worried that a single law suit could bankrupt them as they are not a very cash rich body, of course the rest of the world is stuck with the usual hypocrisy with regard to drugs. I also think that you are right about not booing, a silent stadium would be far more effective than booing
