Dear Editor,

‘Gatlin beating Bolt nightmare for sport’ was the headline of Damien Cox’s piece in the Toronto Star on August 8.

What nonsense!

Bolt’s career may have appeared almost supernatural, but after all, Bolt is only human. He cannot always win. Gatlin was last suspended for a drug infraction in 2006, 11 years ago. He is 35 years old.

Bolt has moved on. After the race he spoke with maturity and grace. Cox should learn from Bolt.

Yours faithfully,

Romain Pitt
