i jus thought is was in poor taste for Ato and his co-commentator on NBC to say that Usain Bolt was disrespectfull to the olympics and the other runners for celebrating prematurely in the 100m.....when Americans point their fingers, pound their chest, scream in their victory it's not disrespectfull...but the caribbean man (shame on Ato)....if it was Tyson Gay would they have said anything?
Ato even went so far to say that Usain's technique is flawed! "There are many flaws...for instance how he archs his neck..."...gosh man, now i dont hate Ato (he is a national hero) but what is that...Bolt is amazing
i agree with what ato saying..d man did dotishness..he shuda jus be professional about the race and finish it properly....after all it was the Olympics...also i guess its the man's job as a commentator to comment on whatever...
you kno what adrenaline is? when your car hits over 160 and yuh want to scream yahooooooo!!!!! you kno how it feels to train for a year for a race and when you running and yuh look left ....no one....you look right ...no one......i might scream, bawl...i dont kno what adrenaline would have caused me to do. you dont stop and tell yourself "i must behave in a restrained manner, at least until i have completed this endeavour"....helllll nooo!....the man have a right to express himself...he win the olympic 100m for ...sake!!!
like too much caffiene gone tuh he head after Ato-teaparty ah wha?
Ato has always had an attitude problem, he was cocky then and hes an imbicil now!
before going into his olympics he was practically bragging about how good he was and was almost saying he was alredy celebrating!

same fcuking small-island mentality.......get the knowledge & capability, then abandon yer country ........mc's & them.........
that is why so much a$$ho!es in govt 'planting' house instead of ensuring food security......
anyhow...watch Hasely Crawford's gold medal race........totally professional to the line........Usain Bolt should have emulated that and his performance would have been all the more spectacular.....and if he stops arching his neck, he would probs drop another 5-hundreths second in his time....I hve no doubt we will see these improvements later on.
hes a great athlete with superb talent .......a gift to the Caribbean , i think he could have been a little more respectful to the other participants of the race and wait till he crossed the line to celebrate.HE is very very young too, so i guess that could contribute to his behavior...
I kinda agree with Ato... not sure if I would consider Bolt's actions to be disrespectful, but more indisciplined. Furthermore, one would question if it is the appropriate etiquette for a sportsman. If Bolt carried it any further, there may have been whistles, streamers, horns, a live band and music all around during his "celebration".
I don't know anything about Bolt's technique being flawed... whatever he's doing right now is producing the results. He WON the 100m final in a WORLD RECORD TIME. Let's see the "flawless" runners beat that! Had it not been for his victory dance across the line, I am SURE he would have lowered the record to an even 9.60.
As we on the topic...i dunno if its just me...but didn't thompson hold him until say the 60m mark...then as they top off Bolt just left him...I think the length of his stride really compensates for the "flawed technique"
