    Tyson has 3 gold medals in one major championship, only Bolt has run a faster 100m in history. IMO, this is apples and oranges.

    Fredricks, Marsh & Gay

    Fredericks and mash for me have been my two favourite sprinters. Marsh whom I saw as exhibiting one of the best natural sprinting forms exhibitable; much the one like a gazelle and Fredericks, well what more can I say: The unceremonial best. These guys' athletic prowess, particularly fredericks' is not reflected by most. These are the guys who could really be tagged as underated in most quarters.

    Having seen this, one would now bring Tyson's track record into focus come 10 yeras post Tyson. Will his acheivments be simply; totally eclipsed by Bolt? Certainly doesn't deserve to be but using what is the case with Marsh and Fredericks...I don't know.

    Next thing is: if Fredericks in particular having extended himself for umpteen years and not acheived an Olympic Gold but still be rated by one guy as the unceremonial best , could it be seen as testimony that regardless of Bolt's short career that he's really the best. Or,are we prepared to use the right parameters and give Fredericks the fair share of what his long silver speckled resume is worth and crown him?

    (yeah I know I started a sentence with "or"; so what)
