    I was thinking that, as fast as Bolt ran that curve, his biggest worry might have been stepping on the line on the outside of his lane. That's a lot of centrifugal force.

    From the picture: Boltís achilles tendon is taking quite the beating.

    Spearman would not be out under the old rule if that was the only infraction but Martina would be. Is there any precedent for something like this? has it happened at any other championship?

    I think Spearmon was over the line already in the beginning of the curve; rainyís picture seems to suggest that he stepped over the line at the end of the curve too.

    Life sucks but to feel that feeling of winning a medal is what it's all about even if it is then taken away. Crawford and Dix never got that feeling so it won't be as sweet for them.

    If I remember correctly, she murdered the lane line (and the field).
