There's No Honor In Winning With Augmentation

The slipperies won the 8 medals at  times that no human body alone could have.

And that's the truth.

There is not a shred of honor in cheating.  Phelps' alleged prowess is so very American - just like the CDS and MBOs - with perfectly good assets leveraged up 40-to-1 to look absolutely stunningly impressive, UNTIL it was revealed to be too good to be true, and mere cheap fraud.

Counter Argument : Olympic Gold Running Shoes

QUOTE:

Running shoe spikes basically havent changed in years, with the exception of using a lighter-weight ceramic aluminum material. Fusco and his team looked to see if their energy maintenance philosophy also could be applied here to pick up a millisecond or two.

Mind you a bit dated, 2000 Olympics - but the question of technology in Track and Field events does come up.

Sorry folks...

... as much as some would like to claim conspircy... simple truth is that Bolt and Phelps are just that damn good.  Be interesting to see what 2012 will bring for the Summer Games, as much as 2010 will bring for the Winter Games. :victory
