Baseball, cycling, track--who cares anymore? Any standout is going to be suspect.

Anytime time there is a quantum leap in athletic performance, a significant level of doubt arises, and in these times, is warranted. I was a big fan of Lance Armstrong. His work ethic and technical advances were impressive, but the extra "edge" was necessary in his mind. From the very day that Usain Bolt "burst" onto the world stage of sprinting, the "edge" was apparent. I'm sorry to say I look forward to the day when Mr. Bolt is busted.

I didn't use PED's of any kind while playing college football, but I had to compete against my own teammates who I knew were using them. Also, against all the other colleges who guaranteed were doing the same thing.

On a level playing field I beat them silly!!!

Bunch of stinking cheaters!!!

Bolt was a supertar at age 15 when he was still living in the backwoods of Jamaica. He is the greatest physical talent that has ever competed in track and field but that does not mean that he hasn't cheated. My guess is that he hasn't and only because it wasn't necessary for him to cheat to win. He was just blessed with the most talent. No records or accomplishments like his will ever not be viewed without skepticism.
