Paris Olympics

The enthusiasm around the 100-meter sprint is evident since there are just 58 days until the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, but recent results have left supporters pining for the explosive time of Usain Bolt’s 9.58-second record. Some have suggested bizarre ways to improve the impending event amid this excitement.

Lamont Marcell Jacobs and Andre De Grasse were seen competing in the 63rd Ostrava Golden Spike over the 100-meter distance in a recent Instagram post by World Athletics. De Grasse won in 10.10 seconds and went on to win the 200-meter event in 20.09 seconds.

With his first 100/200 double since August 4th of last year, De Grasse looked happy with his performance, indicating a bright future for the Paris Games.

“Although the season is young, I’m pleased with [the outcome]…I wanted to come check out my level of endurance and fitness and see where I was at.” De Grass quoted to essentiallysports.com

Worst for the Olympic 100-meter sprint

An admirer expressed frustration by adding, “Just let them do the dr**s again, bruh,” and made the controversial suggestion that sprinters should turn to doping in order to improve their timing. I’m starting to become irritated.”

This idea is in line with a recent social media post that suggests slower performances are the result of USADA’s strict testing, which has decreased doping. Tara Davis-Woodhall aggressively denied these claims.

“This Olympics will have the slowest 100m of the millennium,” a pessimistic fan prophesied, maybe inspired by Andre De Grasse’s recent triumphs, including his 10.11 in the opening 100m of the season and his 10.19 in the Marrakesh Diamond League.

The sprinter from Canada, who won back-to-back 100-meter Olympic bronze medals, has not finished a race sub 10 seconds in 19 since setting a remarkable personal record of 9.89 seconds at the 2021 Diamond League Final.

His closest effort to date was a 10.05-second finish at the Bislett Games Diamond League event in Oslo, Norway on June 16, 2022. Marcell Jacobs, his training partner, is also having a poor performance at the moment.
