How did they get Usain Bolt?
I can understand Bernard Williams – he needs to rebound as much as doeas Kim Collins.
I can understand the quality wannabe’s: Johan Wissman and Marcin Urbas.
However, I cannot understand: how did they get Usain Bolt?
Is this kid still inexpensive?

I suppose Bolt has not cemented his reputation yet, but is still a talented newcomer who still has to prove himself against the best like gatlin and spearmon so until then he comes at a discount. This summer might be the one that catapults him to that level.

Aside from some a handful of fast times, Bolt is very unproven ... Didn't make it out of the rounds in Sydney ... Dead last in Helsinki ... Beats B level sprinters but has yet to win anything on the Circuit ...

Talented, yes ... But has yet to prove himself as a top level sprinter when lining up against the best ...
