JUSTIN GATLIN RUMORS

Julio Jones: It would be hard for Usain Bolt to ‘really pull away from guys in football’

Julio Jones isn’t convinced the fastest man alive would be suited to play in the NFL. The Atlanta Falcons wide receiver was speaking to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com and discussed Bolt’s dominance. Jones was complimentary of Bolt’s amazing quickness. “Wooo … wooo,” Jones said, marveling at Bolt’s blazing speed. “Bolt, he’s amazing. Amazing what he can do out there...

A hamstring injury prevented Bolt from competing at Jamaica’s Olympic trials, but he received both a medical...

Gatlin eager for showdown with Bolt in August at worlds

Justin Gatlin ruled the track last season in a very Usain Bolt-like fashion: 18 wins in 18 races. Impressive and all, but comes with a tiny caveat: Bolt never lined up in the lane next to Gatlin last summer. The Jamaican world-record holder took time off to heal nagging injuries since there were no major meets. Now bring on the planet's fastest sprinter, though their first 100-meter...

Up for track honors, Gatlin shrugs off critics

Justin Gatlin is far more interested in winning races than popularity contests. Still, the American sprinter with a doping history doesn't quite understand the backlash over his nomination for track and field athlete of the year. Gatlin went undefeated in the 100 and 200 meters this season, a year that didn't include a major meet and one in which Usain Bolt chose to give his nagging...

Sprinter Gatlin still tripped up by checkered past

Justin Gatlin hasn't felt this lean or this quick or even this hungry - he's cut way back on cheeseburgers and chocolate - in quite some time. Using a shorter, more compact stride, the American sprinter is off to an 11-0 start in 100-meter races this season, although none have been against a certain person named Usain Bolt. Yet, no matter how many events Gatlin wins or how fast he...
