  1. Low di Bl@@$C*#%E man! Wha unuh a duh?! Asafa is the GREATEST …like it or not he placed us on the map again after Quarry and to a lesser extent Raymond Stewart. World record holder and the most sub 10s’ ever! He is our OWN ….DO NOT DISRESPECT HIM, CHERISH HIM NOT ABUSE HIM.

  2. Person who doesn’t have a clear understanding will choose to to chat factless information…..but, don’t worry if they have a particular bias they will defend vehemently….. wonder how their progeny will fare

  3. Even though it’s very early season and they have not competed for a long time 10.51 for an athlete coming back means you are way past your best and it’s downhill from here .I would expect anything from the 10.3s to low 10.4s for any serious future competition. Softer Powell the writing is on the wall
