Yes, his technique was wonderful.

Can PED's enable a great trail leg and beautiful rhythm?

Mark McKoy, 13.08, Barcelona gold 13.12, the Justin Gatlin of the hurdles.

He served only a 2-year suspension.

I personally remember seeing him go from a normal-looking sprint athlete, to an abnormal-looking sprint athlete.

I will never forget him taking off his warmups, and seeing that he now had SQUARE biceps.

His vascularity was so exaggerated, that that is what it looked like. I will NEVER forget it.

You want to talk about improved time to the first hurdle?


I saw this change as well. He practiced starts with Ben and looked like he was being booted in the butt when the gun went off; that two foot push off. I am not a sprinter; Sprintgeezer, do you know why more don't try this technique? I"m sure it is hard to do.
