Bolt was the regional junior record holder in the 400m before some guy from Grenada Kirani James blasted that out.

Bolt and Rudisha two contrasting cats, but they get along quite well from all reports. One has speed endurance, the other speed.

Linford Christie tested positive for pseudoephedrine in that year as well, so in-fact the true gold medalist and olympic 100m champion in 1988 was Calvin Smith.

No doubting Bolt's 400m credentials but you would have to assume Rudisha would be doing a lot more 400m sprints in training than Bolt.

But to say the least I want to see the race lol.

Has Carl Lewis called out the 4*100 women relay team yet?

It's ironic how Americans are quick to point fingers at athletes from other countries, when they have easily lost the most medals in Olympic events retroactively due to doping use in the past decade.

LOL yes I think only two out of the 8 members of that 100m final line-up were clean, Calvin Smith and Robson da Silva. The other 6 participants, Johnson, Lewis, Christie, Dennis Mitchell, Desai Williams and Ray Stewart all failed drugs tests at some point in their careers.

After Johnson lost to Lewis for the first time in 3 years in a meet at Zurich not long before Seoul, his team panicked. He took his injections too close to the Olympics with not enough enough time for them to clear his system before his drugs test. Thankfully he was caught. He took dianabol, stanozolol and furazabol at regular stages during his career. Plus after his return from suspension he was banned again in 1993 for excessive testosterone.

It's just a shame that Lewis and Christie weren't stripped of their medals as well. Lewis being awarded the gold medal in 1988 is pretty much like Thanou getting the gold medal that was taken away from Marion Jones from Sydney 2000. The IOC publicly did the right thing and refused to upgrade Thanou's silver medal to gold, but there were rumours last year that they gave her the gold medal in secret provided that she kept it quiet.
