Bolt shocked at Rodgers' comments

Aug 19 2013, 5:21am CDT | by IANS

Moscow, Aug 19 (IANS/CMC) Sprint legend Usain Bolt has expressed shock at comments made by Mike Rodgers, a member of the US 4x100m team that finished second behind Jamaica on Sunday's final day of the 14th World Athletics Championships.

Moscow, Aug 19 (IANS/CMC) Sprint legend Usain Bolt has expressed shock at comments made by Mike Rodgers, a member of the US 4x100m team that finished second behind Jamaica on Sunday's final day of the 14th World Athletics Championships.

The US led slightly from the second leg with Rodgers, but the exchange with Rakieem Salaam and Justin Gatlin wasn't the best, reports CMC.

It was the error in the exchange that prompted Rodgers to say: "We would have won today."

"I think we would have won, they know it, I think we gave away a gold medal today," said Rogers.

However, Bolt, the biggest name in track and field, objected to Rodgers statements.

"They couldn't have said that, they couldn't have said that," Bolt repeated four times while shaking his head.

"They were like two metres in front of me, I have been in the worst position running from my blocks and won. I wasn't worried any at all about USA beating us, because I was confident in my team and I know if my guys didn't bring it to me leading, It would be close," Bolt added.

Bolt said Gatlin "probably would have to have at least 10 metres ahead of me to win that race."

Jamaica, led off by Nesta Carter to Kemar Bailey-Cole, Nickel Ashmeade and Bolt, stopped the clock in 37.36 seconds, well below the country's world record of 36.84. US did 37.66 secs for the silver medal and Canada got the bronze with 37.92 secs.

Big-Game Experience Should See Mario Balotelli Get Chance vs. Real Madrid

Oct 22 2014 4:44am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It has been an incredibly bizarre start to the season for Liverpool. After last season's incredible performance in the Premier League, losing Luis Suarez was always going to make it tough for Brendan Rodgers' side to replicate those heroics. Yet despite barely getting out of second gear all season, they are ahead of the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal in the league table. While Chelse ...

Is Lag Slowing Your Swing Down?

Oct 20 2014 1:14pm CDT | Source: GolfWRX

In my last article, “Who is the Greatest Driver of the Ball, Ever?” we introduced the techniques that separate the longest drivers of the golf ball from most amateur and tour players. We established that the turning and thrusting system of the legs, pelvis and torso is the motor and primary energy generator in the golf swing. The supple arms wind tightly up and around this system on the backswing, and then simply react to it and unwind on ...

Royals rookie Terrance Gore thinks he’s faster than Usain Bolt — and he’s probably right

Oct 20 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Washington Post Sports

These are heady days for Terrance Gore, a rookie who will play in his first World Series despite having had all of one official at-bat in the bigs. All because “that’s what speed do,” as their catchphrase puts it. Speed is something Gore, 23, knows all about. He stole 52 bases at Class AAA Omaha and in the majors after his Aug. 31 call-up. During the Royals’ postseason run, Gore has appeared in five games, each tim ...

Gatlin takes criticism, accolades in stride

Oct 11 2014 1:56pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

Justin Gatlin is far more interested in winning races than popularity contests. Still, the American sprinter with a doping history doesn’t quite understand the backlash over his nomination for track and field athlete of the year. Gatlin went undefeated in the 100 and 200 metres this season, a year that didn’t include a major meet and one in which Usain Bolt chose to give his nagging injuries time to heal. But Gatlin’s inclusion for track’s annual award has angered s ...
