London Olympics: Usain Bolt lashes out at Carl Lewis for doping remarks

first_imgHaving attained the legend status, Usain Bolt did not spare American champion Carl Lewis for his remarks on doping among Jamaican athletics.”I have no respect for him (Lewis). The things he says about track athletes, it’s really degrading to say that about other athletes,” said an upset Bolt on Thursday night. “For me that was really sad the other day when I heard what he was saying. I’ve lost all respect for him (Carl Lewis).”Earlier, Lewis, whose Olympic achievements as a sprinter and the long jumper are well chronicled, had said uncharitable things about the Jamaicans. “It was all about drugs, for an athlete out of the sport to be saying that was very upsetting,” said Bolt.Pressed further if Jamaican sport is drug free, Bolt got serious. “Without a doubt, we train hard. Especially my team-mates, we see each other work each day. We work hard, we throw up every day. We get injuries, we have ice baths. We are trying our best to show the world that we are clean,” he said.Well after the celebrations had ended, Bolt took time to analyse the 200 metres race. “For me it was a good race. The key thing was to run the corner as fast as possible. I think I ran it a little too fast as, when I came off, I could feel a slight strain in my back,” he said.And then Bolt started talking about himself without holding anything back. “That was for all the doubters. That was for them, to tell them to stop talking… I’m a legend,” declared the Jamaican.advertisementBolt has been nursing a lot of pain in the lead-up to the Olympics and not all of it had to do with the stiff back. Some even speculated he was only 95 per cent fit.”After the (Olympic) trials where Yohan (Blake) beat me, there were a lot of people doubting me. But that is good, because you know who are your true friends and who is going to support you,” said Bolt.And then Bolt again reverted to Carl Lewis. “For me he’s just looking for attention!”At a time when comparisons are being made between Bolt and the next best, the champion said he would like to be compared with Jesse Owens.”Definitely, Jesse Owens without a doubt. He’s a great athlete. For me it’s wonderful to show the world that I’m the best,” added Bolt.Dipping into the rivalry with Yohan Blake, Bolt was honest. “I said to him, ‘you came around the wrong time, these next two years are mine’. I had to show him these next two years are mine,” said Bolt.Having achieved the ultimate, Bolt plans to celebrate and enjoy himself. “If I can’t find something to motivate me, then maybe football, I don’t know. Only if I am good, remember that,” he said.The champion was asked to compare himself with the other legends in sport. “For me, I can’t say if I’m the status of (Muhammad) Ali and Michael Jordan. I’ve really set myself high in track. A lot of people might say he’s as good as Jordan, he was the best at his sport, I’m the best in my sport,” felt Bolt.As a brand ambassador for Jamaica, Bolt spoke eloquently. “Bob (Marley) is one of the greatest ever out of Jamaica. I’m just carrying out his duty. We’re the same… we are just trying to make Jamaica the best country in the world,” he said.Even as the celebrations continued for Bolt’s fans inside the Olympic Stadium, he was not willing to speculate on Rio Olympics 2016. “I think when I get to 30 I will be thinking about retiring. Track and field is way too hard. Yohan Blake is running 19.4 already, so in the next four years he’s going to be firing. I think I want to get out before he starts running too fast,” admitted Bolt.Meanwhile, British track legend Daley Thompson said: “Usain Bolt always said he wanted to be a legend, and in order to do that he had to do the double double (two times). I guess the legend continues.”last_img read more
