Olympic Champion Usain Bolt Has ‘No Respect’ for USA Legend Carl Lewis

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Olympic Gold Medalist, Usain Bolt

After winning his fifth career Olympic Gold Medal, Usain Bolt voiced his dislike for an iconic nine-time USA Olympic Gold Medal sprinter, Carl Lewis, during a recent press conference. The self proclaimed “living legend” was candid in supporting his dislike for Lewis. “Carl Lewis, I have no respect for himThe things he says about the track athletes are very downgrading. I think he’s just looking for attention because nobody really talks about him. I’ve lost all respect for him. All respect.

Bolt’s dislike for Lewis derives from comments Lewis made four years ago when Bolt took home three gold medals in Beijing China. Bolt’s drastic time drop from 10.3 seconds to 9.69 seconds in the 100 meters sprint prompted Lewis to question whether or not the Jamaican sprinter was using drugs. “If you don’t question that in a sport that has the reputation it has right now, you’re a fool,” Lewis said. “Period.” Lewis’ suspicions may be arguably valid considering the three-month doping suspicion Bolt’s teammate, Yohan Blake, was placed on in 2009 after testing positive for a stimulant. When asked if he believes his team is “drug-free”, Bolt assuringly replied, “Without a doubt. We train hard. … We do our best to show the world we are clean.

  1. Carl Lewis is just a White-suck up with a Saxon American gene,full of jealousy. Typical American elite, I never believed I would see a Black man emulate attitudes of the clan-yes massa. Even Colin Powell & Condi Rice tried to step out on their own-I didn’t say they did! This grown man still catching up his childhood dreams-Punk. Bolt is great and Carl Lewis or Sebastian Coe couldn’t change that. He’s in our hearts. At least Michael Johnson shows due respect

    • I guess since Lewis in not a ignorant ebonic speaking thug he isn’t black in your opinion?? What is it with some black people that like to equate bad behavior with being black. Usain Bolt showed absolutely no class. Carl Lewis has led a controversy free and successful life after leaving the sport. The “typical American elite, I never believed I would see a Black man emulate attitudes of the clan-yes massa” Usain Bolt is going to be going after ever white dollar from ever white advertiser he can get. But by attacking an American icon like Lewis he can probably count American advertisers out. When he realizes what his dumb statement attacking Carl Lewis will probably cost Bolt backtrack his remarks. Congratulations Usain Bolt you showed the world what a great athlete and idiot you are at the same time.

      • PLEASE give me a break! Carl Lewis needs to sit down and shut up! Yea I’m sure Usain really needs to kiss Carl’s ass to get advertisers you CAN’T BE SERIOUS! Clearly Carl doesn’t know this is not the 80’s if they were doping we would know. So Carl can walk around saying whatever he wants and Usain should bow down! Listen STFU!! How about he show some class and just congratulate the man. Last I checked he was the one who tested positive 3 times for DOPING! Do your homework son! BTW Usain did not attack him HE STARTED UP HATING ON HIM. Did you even read the damn article?!! Or did you just jump on the Carl ball rider train!! It’s not a Jamaican or American thing its for the love of the sport and CARL IS DEAD WRONG!!

  2. Carl Lewis is just jealous of my Jamaican Afrikan countryman Usain Bolt’s successes.Lewis is an uncle tom.Flush yourself in your own cesspool boy lewis.

    • Hey Mandingo, I am really laughing out loud. Lol

  3. Bolt is a great athlete, no doubt, but he is a bit full of himself–perhaps he has a right to be, being the world’s fastest man and all…the fact that he is reacting so strongly to Lewis suggests to me that there maybe something to what Lewis was saying…

    • No he is reacting so strong because its DISRESPECTFUL and quite SHAMEFUL! How you going to say some BS like the fastest man in the world probably doping?! That is DISRESPECTFUL! But I guess you would have to be or had to be a sprinter to understand.

  4. Shame on Carl Lewis!

  5. Usain Bolt is hands down the most gifted sprinter in this decade. Carl Lewis on the other hand was the most gifted Track & Field athelete of his time. Because of his record breaking his performances, Lewis was accused of taking drugs but was never proven. Carl’s dominance was interupted by a Canadian/Jamaican, who was tested positive for drugs. With the suppension of Bolt’s training partner Johan Blake, for a positive drug test, Lewis questioned Bolt’s performnces in that context. The drug testing done for Track & Field identifies the dopers, so airing suspicsions and disrespect in the media does nothing for the sport. Great performance Usain, celebrate you victory like the Champion you are.

  6. Mr. Lewis should be complimented for his acheivements and Mr. Bold for his.

    Having said that:

    Do I correctly understand that Mr. Lewis himself was once accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs? If so, it seems he ought to be awfully slow to make accusations without one iota of evidence. Anyone can say anything.

    Does Mr. Bolt not have any decent sense of modesty and humility? He insists on referring to himself as “a living legend.” Would it not be preferable to let it occur to non-relative third parties to call him that? Are we not singing his praises and genuflecting before him as dramatically and as quickly as he would like?

    • Bolt, not “Bold” that is, though Mr. Bolt surely is at the very least bold if not narcissistic.

  7. I haven’t heard Carl Lewis comment or the context in which it was made, therefore I don’t know if it was inappropriate to mention. that said, doping in track and field and many other sports is wide spread. Every one knew Lance Armstrong was doping but kept it quiet. I personally don’t have a problem with doping as long as it is done up front so everyone competing could have an equal chance if they choose to do it.

  8. I have been active in T&F since 1965. A majority of those active in T&F think that most World Class sprinters from 1984 to 2012 (both male and female)are “juiced”. So it could be a case of “the kettle calling the pot….” (I’m Black so I can use that refference). For info on which athletes, in ALL sports, that have been busted, go to this sight:

  9. My compliments to all great achievers. If you cheat, you’ll know. That, in itself, will be your punishment.

  10. Usain Bolt is without question the fastest human being on earth right now. There will be faster sprinters in the decades to come. So just a little wisdom for Mr. Bolt and those of you who choose to speak harshly about Carl Lewis; Jesse Owens dispelled myths about people of color in 1936 which is probable the most important 100 finals ever run because of Hitler’s philosophy that “monkeys could not compete against superior white German athletes. Mr. Bolt, Mr. Lewis and all Olympic sprinters must show respect to the late great Jesse Owens. Each new generation of sprinters should show respect to their predecessors. That is the true Olympic spirit of competition and good will.

  11. I met Carl Lewis Back in Late 2001 at the Golds Gym in Long Beach,CA. to my Real Blackmen stay Away from that Gym I saw More Fags in that place then a little Bit! Crackers with 32inch Arms kissing another Man in his mouth! What kind of Faggitry lol Carl Lewis is a Homo he was up in that Gym & tried to Holla at one of my Homies but my Brother off into a Real Church & wasn’t having it, once we saw what was up we Flew lol One of my Cousins Grew up in Santa Monica & know Carl & confirmEd that He Go the other way a real 2BallB##ch Santa Monica,CA. Is full of alotta WhiteHomos who like BlackPunks so Carl good luck your gonna need it! Leave Brothers alone that are real man Acting all Sensative like a Female you just acting! It’s Bolt’s time now what’s here today will be gone Tomorrow,you had your chance pass the Baton Shittydeal lol

      Indeed Ish Muhammad,

      This would be good reason to lose all respect for Carl Lewis and other athletes. Homosexuality is perverted, genocidal, and is one the primary means of spreading HIV/AIDs in the black community. Back in the day, during the era of the Black Panthers, Malcolm X, etc., etc., although homosexuality existed, this activity was concealed to closet cases. You could end up being ridiculed, beat up, etc., etc., for openly expressing a homosexual lifestyle. Although in contemporary days this lifestyle is acceptable to some people, there are many individuals who detest this, and would show his or her anger or contempt towards any homosexual who attempts to influence a minor, a tied by “blood” relation minor (niece, nephew, cousin, son, daughter, sibling, etc., etc.) into becoming a pervert, homosexual, etc., etc.

  12. I don’t have a problem with Carl voicing his opinion,it was Lewis who told the World that a Canadian by the name of Ben Johnson was on the Juice,later to find out he was right,just because Bolt makes everyone feels good with his antics before and after his races,doesn’t mean he can’t be juiced.I too think he is on the stuff,besides the guy has 9 gold metals,that’s not to shabby.

  13. Why should Usain respect Carl Lewis when Carl Lewis does not return the favour? There is so much jealousy, corruption and evil among us that the White man need not do anything. We will screw over each other for them. Freaking mongrels!!!!!!!

  14. carl is just a hater and a jealous hasbeen.

  15. Carl ewis is both jealous and is playing the White Man’s sore-loser game. He has obviously spent too much time with Whites and, so, automatically assumes any Black victor is also a drug user since Whites hate to lose to Blacks.

  16. If Bolts teammate was already suspended for using stimulants, then there is just cause to raise the question. It wouldn’t be the first time and sprinter/athlete cheated (Ben Johnson-Canada and Marion Jones-USA)…It’s not unreasonable. All these racist, ugly, and homophobic comments are completely unnecessary. Not about jealousy, its about good sense.

  17. Carl you had your day.

  18. Usain, you should respect Carl Lewis,for his achievements in winning golds in 4no Olympics,even though his HOLIER THAN THOU, attitude towards Drug Testing, is laughable coming from HIM.I do maintain that he, like anyone else, has the right to question.
    Many NON-AMERICANS silently question HIM & many of his team members,and believe that had the DRUG TESTING & Transparency,been as stingent then as it is today Jamaican athletes, particularly the WOMEN,would have been Gold Medalist as far back as 1988.
    Lets celebrate these Legendary achievements of both Lewis and Bolt,and not descend into divisionary mudslinging, which I suspect is fuelled by national jealously and pique, demeaning us all as a people.

  20. It is sad that we are on attack mode with each other so often but fail to treat others the same. How many of you have expressed the same sentiments about Lance Armstrong? His body was full of cancer, he was undergoing chemotherapy/radiation treatments yet he won the Tour de France several times.

    Come on folks. Let us not tear each other down. Let us build each other up.

    Peace and Harmony.

  22. I’m not a fan of Carl Lewis and other individuals like him, because I don’t believe in or support homosexuality. I’m not a fan of Usain Bolt, because I’m just not a fan of arrogant and obnoxious athletes, politicians, celebrities, etc., etc.

    Furthermore, because I’m an American, win or lose, I support and have praise for all of our U.S. athletes over any foreign athlete from Jamaica, Japan, Russia, China, Nigeria, Kenya, etc., etc.

  23. When asked about winning the teamrelay race he couldn’t stop talking about himself long enough to talk about his team and his country.Like anyone else with some sense would have….The relay race was a team jamaica event but he just kept boasting bout himself…I don’t know about how the Jamaicans felt about this or if they even noticed..But if an American would have responded in such a childish way that person would have been fried in the media..Even when Labron James was asked about his gold medal win for basketball he said ” it is not about me it’s about the teram and our country” Bolt should take a lesson from James and stop behaving like a clown. He must be covering up alot of insecurity to behave in sch an extreme manner.

  24. Whenever a Black man is self assured and confident, he is arrogrant. But when a non-Black is confident and self assured, he is courageous. I admire his ‘proud of who I am’ attitude, for he truly loves his Blackness.
