Things with Carl Lewis & Usain Bolt Heats Up

 

In the most recent case of Old School vs New School Olympic star Usain Bolt has fired back at legendary Runner Carl Lewis. Bolt said in a interview to USA Today :

“Everybody’s forgotten about him” Bolt later added “I’ve lost all respect, all respect; I’m going to say something controversial right now. Carl Lewis, I have no respect for him. The things he says about the track athletes is really downgrading for another athlete to say something like that. I think he’s just looking for attention, really, because nobody really talks much about him.”

 

This was sparked by this statement from Lewis “I think there are some issues. No one is accusing anyone. But don’t live by a different rule and expect the same kind of respect.” Lewis also implied that some athletes may be using steroids “For someone to run 10.03 one year and 9.69 the next, if you don’t question that … you’re a fool. Period.

 

Sad to see that Usain doesn’t have the respect of one of the men who made his dream possible. Lewis set the standard and bar for what Usain does so it seems ignorant to even say you can’t respect him. It’s almost equivalent to Kobe Bryant saying he doesn’t respect Michael Jordan or a boxer saying “Muhammad Ali doesn’t get my respect”. Without Carl Lewis they may not be a Usain Bolt.

 

Is this a case of Bolt getting to cocky or is this a man defending what he’s earned?

    It’s sad when another person of color has no respect from themselves, because if he was any type of man he would have said that’s his opinion, but I have proven that I can win and went on to discuss the race, but now he has become to the people here in the United States a person of little interest record or not. Usain Bolt on can be valided by a woman not of color, which we know can be the down fall of men of color ask Tiki Barber for example. So, Usain Bolt be careful of how you talk about someone, because trust me you might have to cross their bridge and get help. God does not like bostful person he looks in us to be humble remember God gives and he takes it away and when that happen no indorsements, no friends and no money, sometime its better to humble than to be loud and seen.

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you need to write more about this subject, it may
    not be a taboo subject but typically folks don’t talk about these subjects.
    To the next! Best wishes!!
