Usain_bolt2 In the Sports Illustrated magazine dated 09/11/08, Us sprinter Carl Lewis gave an interview in which he implied that Usain Bolt may have been under the influence of drugs when he broke the world record at the Olympics. Carl Lewis did not outrightly accused Bolt of cheating, but he expressed doubts about the ability of Bolt to run the 100 meter in 9.69 seconds and also at  Jamaica drug testing system.

When one reads the interview it its entirety it is very apparent that Carl Lewis, despite his many achievements, is an angry, covetous, envious, grudgeful, and deceitful person. Did Carl Lewis expect that any records that he set several years ago will not be broken? Has he ever read the history of the wild,wild west? where some of the fastest gunmen alive then was out gunned by someone younger and faster? Carl Lewis then went on to compare the drug testing ability of Jamaica as it relates to that of the USA. Carl Lewis forgot that the USA did not catch on to Marion Jones until she was busted by the Olympic officials. It is very bad taste for a former Olympian to be downplaying the performance of someone who outperforms him/her. Let others do that dirty work. In this world there is good, better, best ,and guess what? someone will also beat Usain Bolt someday.

Carl Lewis needs to enjoy his retirement and stop badmouthing other athletes. He is coming off like a sour old grape. Bolt underwent some of the most sophisticated drug testing offered by the Olympic committee and if he were positive, Lewis would be the first to know. If he is found to be positive in the future then you can talk, but right now you are not looking too good.
