    Big contrast between Williamson and Chambers in that image, especially considering that Dwain is pretty solid in his build.
    Also a BIG contrast between what Dwayne look like now and what he did when he was on the dope !!

      He's certainly too muscular for Doc Patton's taste!! >:-)

        It's hard to get your legs too strong for sprinting, but there must be a circumstance when a sprinter has gained too much torso weight and has lost some of his leg-strength to total weight positive ratio. You need to have a 'strong' upper body (and core!), but probably not a body-builder's physique. But the line is so fine, I'm sure elite athletes would rather be on the 'over' side of the equation, than the 'under'.

          What they'd 'rather be' and what will make them faster are not necessarily the same thing

            Good point. Since they (try to) make a living with their bodies, wanting it to look good may blind them to what it should actually 'be'.

              Unfortunately, too many of our sprinters are much more competitive in the gym than they are on the track. Having abs you could grate cheese on might win admirers but not necessarily races.

                Exactly, and Shawn has a nice collection of medals.

                  My biggest concern about HAA is he doesn't seem to peak at the right time. He set a season's best of 10.20 last night which means for the third time in four seasons (excluding 2010 which he missed through injury), he's set his season's best in September. :?

                    Hey, it takes a while to all those muscles working together in the same direction!

                        Hey now! When you only two muscles, it IS very important to coordinate their movements!
