    I have my doubts.

    He's not overly bulky (a la Johnson) so I doubt he's on steroids. I suspect he's just a freak of nature.

    Did he slow down again at the end, a la Beijing?

    The man's a freak of nature. There's no evidence of steroid use (e.g., he's not built like the proverbial brick out-house).

    Not this time, which probably accounted for at least half the improvement on his world record.

    Would it be faster to run 100m from a rolling start? That is, you run 120m (say) and the clock is started when you pass the 20m mark.

    ..or he's on something that they haven't got a test for.Give it 5-10 years and we'll see if the record stands!

    Yep, I think he did the 150m recently and did the last 100 in about 8.7s or something like that.

    If he is on something I'd like a bit of it.
