Quote Of The Day
“I don’t see sprinting as the prime event anymore. These boys can hide too much. Shot put has become more exciting than the men’s 100m because we very seldom see the best men lining up.”
“Everybody wants to duck and hide. This is not boxing. It’s a race. It’s what we do. When you want to duck and hide it is a form of killing the sport and the event.”
– Former 100m world champion Kim Collins talking about how top sprinters always dodging each other is killing the event. We think some level of uncertainty and anticipation between Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin going into the World Championships is a good thing, but it’s ridiculous that the two fastest athletes in the 100m haven’t raced each other head-to-head in almost two years.
