To gain an evolutionary advantage you don’t have to be able to run faster than a lion, you have to be able to run faster than the person beside you
I know you are joking, but the advantage would actually be to stand still as the lion will instinctively chase the runner (fast or slow).

The blood building PEDS that are available very cheaply are strongly encouraged by the Athletics officials who are making huge sums from sponsorships on the back of the successes of their athletes only report the occasional fail to 'prove' that they're drug testing correctly.
Like many others Jamaica especially they have to decide who,when and why a particular athlete gets thrown under the bus,plenty documentaries showing the truth behind the 'sport'.
As for our successes we play the TUE system to the hilt and UKAD have huge loopholes surrounding out of competition testing and what can be taken then.
Billy Joe Saunders had been playing the game unfortunately his opponent had Victor Conte on his side who showed everything for what it is and he had to vacate or have a legal battle after failing the VADA testing system.
Radcliffe typifies the TUE exploitation to the hilt,she is an anaemic,asthmatic white woman with the most inefficient running style in history yet she has ran the FASTEST LIKE FOR LIKE MARATHON IN HISTORY like for like being male vs female time beating the times of all the blood doping and EPO cheats and it still hasn't been broken.

At 6ft 5 Bolt has an extraordinary physique for the 100m. Which other track athlete comes close to that height? Taking on the West African theme, the physiques of many Prem footballers stand out. Sissoko and Sanchez of Spurs are beasts. Yaya Toure is a monster. Diame at Newcastle, Viera and even Henry who was tall AND very quick. Drogba was like a machine. Few Europeans come close to such physicality.Denzil will know more but I would have thought illegal drugs are more effective in stamina events rather than short sprints?Radcliffe is a mystery to me. A truly staggering WR for the marathon.
Most PEDs have a crossover of benefits I would also think like for like benefits in distance events would be greater,though heard Victor Conte talk of the improvements they made with Tim Montgomery in the weights room which transferred straight onto the track can't remember the exact numbers but was staggering.

nope. a horse can't run 26 miles non stop without needing a rest. they can walk & canter a bit but can't run it
A horse can cover more distance than a human in a 24 hour period so whether its classified as gallop/canter/wanking is irrelevant
