Was Lance Armstrong's confession the end of Cycling?

I would think it is almost certain Bolt is using and has used unfair performance enhancers.


Whether this will come out or not...dunno

How many 9.7-9.8 guys are being or have been caught? It sure makes it even more strange that Bolt is sitting way out there at 9.58 by his (allegedly) clean, lonesome self

You didn't watch the Mt Ventoux stage at the tour today, did you? In the mind of many cycling fans, Lance Armstrong is already forgotten. All hail Chris Froome!

Given that sprinting never had as many fans as cycling, I think Bolt's demise would be a bigger hit to track and field than Armstrong's exposure was to cycling. But it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

Bolt isn't doped!

He's tall!

He eats yams!

He was good as a junior!

He never failed a test!

Very true he is an outlier but.... Odds are that he is doped. I hope he isn't but the odds are for him being doped. Someone compile a list of all the know cheats under 9.9/9.8

Every pro athlete is a "freak of nature". Bolt would be a great sprinter even if he wasn't doped up - he's good for at least 10 flat. That 9.58 is a complete farce.
just sayin

If Bolt is doping, will he get caught. If they find a positive sample (or samples) will they be released or hidden? Bolt going down would ruin the sport.

No. We are waiting to see if Bolt is stupid/unlucky enough to get caught.
yea and nay

YES waiting to hear Bolt got nailed (no pun intended) but no it will not mean the end of T & F in the US of A.
Times might just get slower.

Did the exposure of Bonds, Sosa and MacGwyer (sp?) mean the end of bazzzzzzzzzzeball?

No.

Will the 20-plus busts of NFL (National Felons League) players since last season (Hi Aaron Hernandez) mean the end of pro football?

No. (alas)

I'm waiting for the uncovering of an IAAF/WADA conspiracy to suppress positive test results from Bolt more than I'm waiting for him to actually test positive.

Yes but some are more outliers naturally than others.
The NBA has outliers for height, but compared to the tallest man in the world these basket ball players would be short.

Are Bonds, Sosa, McGwire, and Hernandez the only athletes in their sports that most Americans can name? Do they account for the majority of the revenue produced by those sports? No and no. If Bolt is dirty, it will never come out while he is still competing, and most likely not when he is retired either. Bolt could do anything short of sticking a needle in his a$$ on the starting line of the 100m at Worlds, and neither the IAAF or anyone else would do anything about it.
