We'll be disqualified for that. Massive shame.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

So useless at relays :lol: every time.

So gb below medal target,

Take out Mo and it wasn't the best for gb. Lets hope the youth are coming through.

Russia have done amazingly. Back to being a force.

Anyone else watching, bad timing with the GP but will definitely flick over for the 100m final.

Yep I'm watching. I know we should never doubt Usain but he's looked off all weekend and Gatlin is looking very strong.

Gatlin could run 9:6x here

I think Gatlin will run 9.6x, can't see Bolt beating that given his form.

Bolt getting a silver will be really weird.

Gatlin lost that as opposed to Usain winning. Last 30 metres you can see him rocking back and forth, he'll kick himself for that.

Usain :datass:

LOVE Crammy quite bluntly saying "its the result we all wanted" :lol:

Let's hope he can do it again in the 200m!

I find it amazing drug cheats can ever come back to the sport, their body is still boosted in muscle or whatever after all, they still have an unfair advantage.

Gatlin had a 4 year ban which seems fair enough as I don't think it should totally ruin your chosen profession, though being allowed back after being caught twice is a bit suspect as you clearly have no respect for the rules.

The one year Gay and Powell got is a bit ridiculous though. Given there's World Championships every two years it barely seems a worthwhile ban at all.
