Discuss.

In case you don't know, the first man (Tyson Gay) broke the US record for the 100m in a track meet with a time of 9.71 seconds. Unfortunately for him, the second man (Usain Bolt) beat his ass with a time of 9.58 (which is pretty crazy) in the same race. This includes the fact that Bolt started his victory celebration before finishing the race.

The hedgehog needs no introduction. For comparison, he could run the hundred meters in approximately 0.3 seconds.

Except you're not allowed to spin dash in the starting area so it would take him slightly longer.

This is true; though it's still pretty fast.

The president of the Jamaica Urological Society Dr. William Aiken has, among others, forwarded the idea that Afro-Caribbean runners have a genetic benefit derived from the slave trade, with people on the western-most parts of the Caribbean being the progeny of "only the fittest of the fit slaves"


These Jamaicans are starting to get uppity.





This was made after the Beijing Olympics (where he set a world record and essentially danced the last 20m) but it still holds true today.

I was curious to see what feministing had to say about this but they haven't gotten there yet. It is somewhat of a complex issue if you need a team of doctors to determine a person's sex.

Any issue is complex if you examine edge-cases.

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here. I don't think you can really say something like this is only complex because it is an edge case.

Umm. I didn't see the word "only" anywhere.
