He is already a sporting legend and I could see him competing beyond the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London.

Comments:
too much controversy with this woman. Insane times one year after being good but not outstanding previously. Then, with fame and money to earn she leaves the sport as soon as mandatory in/out of season blood testing is announced

as great as she has been at top level, her longevity is the really stunning thing about her. Still sub 12 at 50

One of the great Jamaican sprinters. She certainly contributed to track and field athletics spanning I would say three decades.

you're joking! Just who is this guy on a world scale? One world indoor title in an average time. One year he dipped under 10 seconds with ideal wind conditions in nice, warm Doha. No other years under 10.

One of the great European sprinters. Tried 400m hurdling and it certainly paid dividends in 2000 when she won gold in Sydney, Australia.

a real lady of the track who I believe stayed clean in a decade of drug cheats. Remarkable, smooth style- low slung arm action with very fast leg turnover
