Usain Bolt has announced that he will run all four legs of the men’s 4x100m in all future athletic tournaments.
After having his 4×100 gold taken away from him because one of his teammates was found to have been doping during the 2008 Olympics, Bolt said the only way to prevent this is to remove the concept of teammates.
He told reporters, “I am annoyed, yes, but I will just run all of the legs in future. It will be easy. I will just swap the baton into my other hand during each handover area.
“If the authorities think that this is unfair, I am willing to run one of the legs backwards to even things up a bit?
“No? How about I have to run five legs instead of four? I don’t mind, really.
“Look, I don’t care what you want to do, I’ll even let all the other runners take drugs – I can’t be fairer than that.”
