db you can’t be serious–Mo ran 10.8x in one race while clearly coming off of extremely serious injuries and not even running through the line. You’d have to either not care about the facts and have some sort of agenda or just be dumb to think he was in equally good health and effort and ran 10.8x. That’s just moronic. He had numerous injuries throughout his career and could still probably go 10.3-10.4 if he really desired to train for that. You’re acting like he peaked out for the season in the greatest shape and went 10.8.
And how about Linford Christie? He had an extremely long career and many say he would demolish the masters races if be were to run because he is in such great shape.
And Michael Johnson? The alien. He sure had a “really short” career and a quick peak and fall… right? Or are we being selective in the examples?
I don’t think Mo’s injuries were quite clear and how he suffered those injuries? What caused them? The people who last longer in the sport when not winning are the ones who have less likely to have doped. Tendinitis causes him to go from 9.87 to 10.84 in 3 years? I don’t care who doesn’t run through the line, for a 10.84 he would have to walk across the line to lose .4s in 10m. For christ sakes he went from 9.87 to 10.35 which is half a second in 2 years all because of tendinitis? It’s BS.
I am not defending michael johnson or indicting him, but to say Heike doped when you have reams and reams and reams of documentation on East German doping but she’s in none of it, but almost all of the others who set WR’s or won championships were and they all looked like males and can’t reproduce. That’s BS and nonsense. I’ll stand by the athlete who competes a long time and shows a normal progression with a long term decline. That’s not the psychological profile of a doper who dopes to win or gain money. People like Mo Greene and Linford Christie don’t compete now because even with PED’s they can’t win and why in the world would an athlete use PEDs to win a Masters Meet.
