Usain Bolt responds to Carl Lewis comments
  • September 30th, 2008

You might recall the entry I did on Carl Lewis comments. He said a lot of things about Usain Bolt, but stop short of accusing him on dope. Well the Bolt from Jamaica has responded infatically to Lewis slew of brash comments

Usain Bolt:


“I know I’m clean. I work hard for what I want. I know what he said. To me it doesn’t really matter what he said, a lot of people were saying that. When you run the 100 metres that’s what you get. As long as you’re fast they start saying that. It’s like a trend. I’m trying to change that. It’s a bad image for the sport. Carl Lewis can say whatever he wants. That’s just his opinion”

Asked on his training regime, to shed some light if the training tallies with his record breaking performances at Beijing and also Lewis accusation of Jamaica doping program as ‘laughable’

Usain Bolt:


“The 200 is also sprinting, that was key. The only thing I had to do was get my start right and I got my start right. That’s why my last 50 metres are so good because I’ve got speed and endurance. For sure we get tested in the Caribbean. They like to come to your house early in the morning. It’s not cool getting up at six, seven in the morning when you’re just trying to enjoy your sleep. But I know what it’s for and it’s fair. We get tested all the time. When you’re in the top 20 in the world you get random tested. They get to know your whereabouts”

When asked on his future

Usain Bolt:


“In the future I’ll probably step up to 400 metres. But it’s a lot of work. I’m not ready for that kind of work. I’ll be in London … I hope it isn’t cold. I’m looking forward to that. I can be champion again. I’ll be 26 then. I have a lot of time on my hands. All I have to do is stay focused, train hard and be ready”
