Nine-time Olympic Gold medalist, Carl Lewis may be learning the hard way never to make Jamaicans angry as the island’s greatest sprinting product and several of his fans have fired back at the highly revered American athlete.
As expected, Usain Bolt cemented his legendary status at the Olympic games in London by repeating as the 200m champion in a time of 19.32 seconds. Bolt, along with Jamaican teammates, Yohan Blake (Silver – 19.44s) and Warren Weir (Bronze – 19.82s) ensured that London’s medal stand was proverbially painted in black, green and gold; completing an unprecedented sweep of the high-profile event.
However, the attention turned to Usain Bolt as he had a verbal go at Carl Lewis for comments that the American sprinting legend made a few days ago in light of Bolt’s defense of his Olympic 100m title on Sunday. During an interview, Lewis implied that Jamaica’s drug testing procedures and doping controls needed to be strengthened compared to other countries.
At a press conference on Thursday, Bolt addressed Lewis’ comments; intimating that he has no respect for the former American champion and eight-time World champion.Click Here To Read More
