bloody hell, that was sooooo good

I have goosebumps

he doesn't even look like he tries too hard

I keep saying to DH "that's just mad" every time they show it again! You don't win a 100m world final by that margin either, amazing, in fact I'd even use the very american "awesome", which I usually hate!

My dh insists he takes drugs.

I insist he doesn't grin

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

I was more emotional over Jessica Ennis winning the Heptathlon though!

AnyFucker Sun 16-Aug-09 21:30:49

yes user, I had a big lump in my throat too

I have never heard of Jessica before

such a little slip of a girl but wow grin

I love Athletics

bring on 2012 !!!!!

It was totally mindblowing.

And wasnt Tyson Gay really pissed about it. Mind you I would be too if I had run a national record of 9.71 and was still metres behind...

It was amazing! And he definitely looks like he could go faster. Felt sorry for Tyson Gay in 2nd place, who was clearly running as fast as he possibly could for the whole thing and still got nowhere near.

Also well done to Jessica Ennis too. She was terrific.

Apparently Usain Bolt reckons he can do 9.4 but that might be his limit (!!)

Wallace, according to my dh he is the most drug-tested athlete ever! I too really hope he hasn't found some weird drug that hasn't been discovered yet.

I think he could go faster - I bet he will break 9.5 (when he stops trying to smile for the camera, raise his arms in the air, and dance over the line).

I also would love to see him try the 400 m - I wonder would he be good enough to win 100, 200, 400 and relay? No-one has ever done that.
