    30 for 30 - 9.79*

    Anyone else watch this tonight? Pretty interesting story about the Seoul Olympics 100 meter race and the role of performance enhancers. These track guys are still fighting like high school girls.

    I thought it was done well. Gives a pretty good look into how dirty the sport is.

    It makes you feel like they're all lying (except BJ of course) and are all guilty of it. Like one guy said, 80% of them were probably doing it.

    I would be shocked if any of them are being 100% truthful.

    That's what I thought too. It seems like they were all doing it but were ****** that Ben Johnson did it better.

    I found it interesting that the lab guy tested passed samples recently to see what they might have missed. Yet, he stopped almost immediately. That would have been interesting to see.

    Brought back memories of watching the Olympics as a kid. I remember the 100-meter dash was must see TV back then

    It sounded to me like it was going to implicate most or all of the US track heroes from that time and he didn't want to be the person to do it.

    Anyone else notice that a few minutes after they had the doctor(?) talking about how braces were a tell tale sign of an athlete using HGH they showed an old post race interview with Carl Lewis where he smiles at the very end and you can see he has braces?

    i believe that with HGH it makes the Jaw more masculine and pronounced. So bigger jaw, more spread out teeth, hence the need for braces.

    i watched about 1/2 of the show, not the best 30 for 30, but interesting. It was interesting about the Canadians taking horse pills, the pharamcy thought the trainer was a Vet because of the horse drugs he was ordering.

    It was well done. Going in I thought that it would focus only on Johnson, but having as many people as possible interviewed really helped.

    Lewis was definitely cheating (see his positive test in '88 after Olympic Trials), but it is interesting how some are made to be the bad guy (like Johnson) and some are still thought of as heroic.
