Push Back To Carl Lewis Statements

Remember how we reported that Carl Lewis openly questioned the Jamaican success in Beijing and directly called into question the validity of Usain Bolt's Olympic performances?

Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell did not let the remarks go undefended and responded by saying the following:

"Yes, I am disappointed with the words of a former athlete [Carl Lewis]."

"What Usain did does not shock me, because I know how much talent he has and this is the first year he has devoted his training to the 100m."

Can't we all just get along? Only in track, do we have Olympic gold medalists going back and forth in the media at a time when glowing words should be bestowed upon the sport after the Beijing Games.
