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.

What If Sports Stars Were Fat? Including Rory McIlroy, Henry Shefflin And Tommy Bowe

Sep 16 2014 4:45am CDT | Source: balls

Balls.ie Professional sports stars are like fine-tuned athletic machines. In the modern era of specialised diet programmes and rigorous training regimes, it is a rare sight to see an athlete carrying a bit of extra weight. The novelty of what has become colloquially known as the “fat-lete” has almost become extinct. If you ever wondered, even just out of sheer bitterness, what a certain sporting hero would look like if they were dangerously portly, look no further. Here are 27 ...

Chelsea FC: Can the Blues Run Away with the Premier League?

Sep 16 2014 3:30am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Before we begin, constituting what "running away with the league" means seems paramount. There is no clear-cut definition, but for the purposes of this article—and hopefully our posterity—the scenario could be explained as follows: "A side has ‘run away with their league’ should a distance of at least 10 points exist between them and the runners-up come season’s end." Obviously the mathematics may deceive historians on o ...
