    He'll be alright. I doubt a lot of people in the younger generation know Carl Lewis, especially "as well" as Bolt.

    Don't have a problem with what he said, and I don't think it will hurt him. Lewis is notoriously harsh towards anyone he considers a threat to his legacy, and I have always thought that he had some nerve pointing fingers at others when questions swirled around him.

    Usain does have an ego, but he is a sprinter. Find me one humble one LOL.

    Eh, Lewis started it by basically saying he was doping. I can understand why Bolt would be upset.

    Much ado about nothing...


    He's the fastest man alive.

    Most people never heard of Carl Lewis, and those that do don't even remember what made him special.


    Imagine a big company telling people,

    "Yeah, we're dropping Bolt as our spokesperson/endorser. He talked trash about Carl Lewis."

    Consumers: "Carl who?"



    And this is coming from someone who competed 4 years on the 100, 4x1, 110 hurdles, 330 hurdles, and who has much respect for Carl Lewis...

    Regardless of the fact that I do not see any issue with his comment, I hardly doubt anyone cares to remember something like this in a negative light for any further past this weekend If someone does... Way too much time on their hands...
