German Olympic sprinter Tobias Unger appears not to buy what Usain Superman Bolt is selling. Unger put down a 10.46 in the first round, then a 10.36 in the second. Needless to say that was not in the same stadium as Bolt's 100M times. (BILD.DE)
Unger voiced his complaints about the Jamaican sprinter to BILD sport, saying: “Bolt didn’t even warm up for the semi final. He showed up in shorts and jogging shoes, did his pickups and practice starts, put on his spikes and then ran the 100m in 9.92 seconds.
“Bolt ran a time of 9.8 seconds in May and again at the end of September. He showed no tiredness during training,” an annoyed Unger added.
“They do whatever they want on their island. Nothing happens to them. I’m the only one here at the Olympics who is registering with the doping controllers.”
Bolt apparently didn’t even know how to fill out the doping forms. The American sprinters’ coaches actually laughed when they heard about German doping controls.
Unger, who was cut in the semi-finals, threatened to quit: “I just don’t have the desire anymore.”
Sour grapes, or right on?
Unger studied sports science in Germany, so he knows a few things or two. His 100M PR is 10.22, and 200 is 20.20
