Off The Ball: Usain Bolt gold doesn't alter grim reality
There has been much talk of Usain Bolt and the saving of his sport in recent days. It seems many have taken their lead from Steve Cram on the BBC commentary, "And Bolt gets it! He's saved his title! He's saved his reputation! He may have even saved his sport!"
I didn't really mind that Cram was so blatantly anti-Gatlin. Most of us are.
Instinctively we all feel there is something very disturbing about the 33-year-old running faster times than he managed back in 2005, a year before he tested positive for testosterone.
