Nick Zaccardi had a great Q&A with Bolt today as Bolt made a rare US appearance (he hasn't raced in US since 2008).
Not only is Bolt fast, he's just a way better interview than other people.
Check this out. He has the same belief on doping as we do. There needs to be a huge differentiation between intentional and unintentional doping. Intentional doping should 100% be a lifetime ban. there is ZERO excuse for it in 2014.
Bolt said wrote:
I think one thing I would put in place is that if you make a mistake, you get a ban for a couple years. But if you seriously did it on purpose, you should be banned for life.
This one is great as well.
OlympicTalk: If you raced Justin Gatlin this season, do you think you would have been able to beat him?
Bolt: [Takes a second to think] Well, if I had gotten a little bit more races under my belt, yeah. But perfect conditions, if he’s running 9.8, I don’t think so. I don’t think I would beat him.
Who else admits that? No one.
