until bolt approaches or exceeds lewis' achievements, he has no claim to 'greatest athlete of all time'. can't re-write history and forget past champions.

Decathletes are a better indication of greatest athletes. Can't win an event you don't compete it.

Did Lewis defend the titles in which he and Bolt competed in?

The difference will be the result. Seriously, Cammarelle better smash Joshua, for the country and for justice since it would be a joke to see a gold medalist who was gifted the R16 win.

I see USA surpassed China on medal standings. I supposed something like this happened when I haven't red any of Wolfy's posts recently

Bolt's career isn't over yet, you will keep bringing long jump up when they aren't relevant. As a sprinter they can't be compared hence you bring the long jump in.

Daley Thompson is a better athlete than Carl Lewis, we can keep moving the posts. Pretty to easy why Bolt doesn't respect him unlike Michael Johnson or Jesse Owens.

It's cojones but it was brilliant stuff and normally the French choke.

Daley Thompson taking the piss out of Carl Lewis after his famous shirt he wore at the LA Games. "I hadn't spoke to Carl since 1984 until 2008. Then I see him at the Beijing Games and says "do you think Bolt is on drugs". Daley is like pleasure to see you Carl.

bolt claimed to be the greatest athlete of all time. you're arguing purely on sprints whereas i'm looking at the overall picture. bolt is the greatest sprinter of all time but in terms of overall accomplishments, he has yet to surpass carl lewis.
