Usain Bolt - Athlete But Not Sportsman

IOC president Jacques Rogge criticized Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt today for showing a lack of respect to other competitors after his record-breaking gold medal performances in the 100 and 200 meters, according to an Associated Press article.

Probably the key display of his lack of his respect was his showboating in the 100 meter final. He should have respected the event by giving it his all for the full 100 meters. One can only guess what kind of time he could have run.

Usain Bolt is an incredible athlete. I hope that he matures into a great sportsman as well.

I've never read such a load of old tosh in my life. He wasn't disrespectful to the opposition at all. He was proud of his achievements and rightly so. Long may it continue.
