On reflection I LOL at the commentator describing Frederick as "the worlds greatest NATURAL athlete"

Fair jump that.

I was the best at long jump when I was in school and from memory I think he's nearly doubled my best Happy

I don't recall watching it live, as I was only 1 year old but you never know.

Carl Lewis is the most exciting athletics star. Ups and downs plus controversy.

Bolt just won all his races.

Carl Lewis won 4 gold's in his first Olympics equalling Jesse Owens.

Was part of the most famous drug scandal race.

Greatest long jump comp ever

4 Olympic long jump titles on the bounce

A 100m wr in 1991 that was unexpected.

He is a bit weird. But pure talent.


I really don't know how there isn't a movie on him. He is the Muhammad Ali of Athletics...Bolt is like Floyd Mayweather.

Jonathan Edwards was a special athlete. Weird to think he is 54. Almost as weird to think he has held the triple jump record since 1995.

When Michael Johnson described Usain Bolt as a once in a generation athlete, he hit the nail on the head. High praise from an absolute nebuchadnezzar of a runner.

My main childhood memories of athletics are of Steve Cram.
