yeah-yeah... I know.

But come on now - it's so obvious that all the greatest sprinters in the world are black, but I was suprised to see this kid take the 400m.





Wariner Leads U.S. Sweep of 400m

Jeremy Wariner (search) picked up where Michael Johnson (search) left off as he became the sixth straight American to win an Olympic 400-meter title and led a U.S. sweep of the medals.

Wariner, 20, finished in 44.00 seconds — a personal best and fastest in the world this year. He crossed the finish line with his arms extended in victory, followed by silver medalist Otis Harris (search) (44.16) and bronze medalist Derrick Brew (search) (44.42).

The United States has dominated the event since 1984, winning 13 of the 18 medals in the last six Olympics. Americans also swept at the 1988 Seoul Games.

The three Americans hugged in the finish area, then began a slow victory lap with three U.S. flags.

"It means a lot. We all thought we could go out there and go 1-2-3. We did our best, we fought hard, and we all came out on top," Wariner said, showing no sign of emotion. "It hasn't sunk in yet."

Wariner has been tabbed the successor to Johnson, who ruled the 400 for more than a decade, still holds the world record of 43.18 and won gold medals in the 1996 and 2000 games. Wariner even has Johnson's old coach, Clyde Hart of Baylor.

Yeah, let's all be colorblind, deaf and dumb too.

And the Emperor has no clothes either.

Looks like the US won all 3 places.

You know, in the original Greek olympics 2nd place was no better than being dead in a ditch. PC olympics these days...

Ummm...


Sophomore Jeremy Wariner broke the meet record and posted an NCAA provisional qualifying time in the 400 meters at the season-opening Oklahoma Indoor Classic Saturday.



2002 High Point Individual Jeremy Wariner (Arlington Lamar/Baylor)



And for the record and IBTL, I'm don't give a crap about some white chick from Belaruski getting the gold, but a white boy from Baylor Texas USA - now that's worth cheering!
