        Mr. "croflash", I believe the time was a successful one, because it's the fastest he's ever performed in a championship, and it helped him medal.
        Well, but that's saying a lot if it can be considered a success. Two years ago Asafa was the favorite to win gold and ended up third, last year many still thought he could win and didn't even medal. The expectations have been lowered again and it almost feels like a surprise that he has won bronze when he has run faster countless times before and once again did not have his best race.

        Don't get me wrong, winning a medal in this field is absolutely a feat that should be applauded, I just don't think joking and fooling around before the race and playing with the camera is the reason why he ran 9.84.

            It isn't on that level but if you seriously don't think a Gay without the groin injury woulda ran 9.6x you're crazy..

            Also I really still don't see Bolt running a WR in the 200.. we all know he ran that 19.32 all out, and that 9.69 was clowning, he could have ran a 9.58 or better at the olympics I think. I say 19.3 high or 19.4 for bolt.
            you sir are full of horse shit.
            Bolt ran 19.30 not 19.32, it was all out but into a headwind!
            He would NOT have run 9.58 if he didnt ease up, 9.63-9.64 with 0 wind.
            The beijing track is superior to this berlin track.

              Almost exact same time too it was 9'99 in 1999, yeah?

              I'm happy for Dwain, I feel sorry for the crap time he gets. Man has a family to support, judgement placed upon him by faceless critics and still pushes on, makes a final winds up 6th in the history's finest race. Now, he'll sit at home and watch a quartet of mentally pathetic team mates fumble through a relay, whilst he, the nation's best runner is left of the team for no valid reason other than Vile Politics.

              • I didn't know Maurice and Donovan were there, after the time I was running all over the place.

                I was wondering if Donovan would be there since he was Usain's biggest supporter and somewhat of a mentor going into Beijing.

                • There are almost no words.
                  Best race ever.

                  Bolt is unreal.

                  Gay set NR.

                  Asafa medaled.

                    i would have really liked to see a 9.99, would have brought this race to far surpass Tokyo 1991 (6 men sub 10.00).

                      It all depends what you think he "actually" ran in Beijing.
                      0.02s for rt & 0.05s for slowing last 10m ( perhaps even an additional 0.01 - 0.02s for 80 - 90m )

                        I can see what Eldrick is saying actually although I'd counter it by suggesting the track in Beijing may have been faster.

                        In some ways Gay has caught up to the kind of level that Bolt actually ran last year, so it's a shame he lost time to injury.
                        Tyson said he was faster and better this year and yes the injury played a role.
                        If tyson had no injury problems he probably wouldnt run faster than 9.71 anyway... and is not on 9.5 level.
                        Here we go again....who said Tyson is on a 9.5 level? Now you wanna speculate what he might have run :roll:

                        While you're at it, why not try and rip a hole in his 9.71, cuz remember Tyson just a basic 9.84 guy :shock:
                        no-one said he was basic after his 9.77 in rome did they, so no need to bring that up twice.

                          Physically he wasnt 9.7, he ran as fast as he could have.

                          • Asafa run a season's best.
                            The race went according to form man.

                                How about comparing the track surfaces? This Berlin run was physically faster. In the end... whats your point?
