Re: Why doesn't Usain Bolt get the Lance Armstrong treatment from the public?

That is what I said in my first post here ...

But with all respect, why didn't you say it that way in your first post. WHen you say "talent is not something you inject", I really find it a naive comment.

We are now living in a world in which everything is possible, even making a race horse out of a donkey. The doped cyclists of the 90's are evidence for it.

You realized that I never referred to Bolt, took a more global viewpoint.

There was no jealousy. The accusations proved to be right. The Texan is BUSTED. Can that be accepted once and for all? Six positive tests, is that not enough?

LeMond had his flaws but was probably clean. And many many many riders denounced doping in the peloton long before him, all right. LeMond popped up very late.
