I doubt his leg was broken. Come on now. Just like Marion Jones wasn't using steroids. " I didn't take steroids. Ok I lied and took them ". What a disgrace she was and a phony apology.

Sorry my friend. I saw highlights of the race and his leg was broken. That is what the Olympics are all about. Not about who can win the most medals but about courage and doing things you or anyone else thought were impossible. Good for him. Hope he recovers soon. This a good lesson for Leshaun Merritt who was the US runner in the 400M who just came back from a 21 month doping ban and then pulled his hamstring in the preliminary rounds. Served him right the cheat. He should retire from running because his credibility is shot forever. Once a cheater always a cheater.

I wonder if he just came off a doping ban like Leshaun Merritt of the US. Leshaun just came off a 21 month doping ban then pulled a hamstring in the preliminary heats of the 400M. Karma has a way of catching up to people. You never know? There have been enough American track athletes that have been nailed for doping in the past that's all. Leshaun was the Olympic champion in 2008. I guess they should take that medal away like they did from that lying cheater Marion Jones. What a great role model for young sprinters.
