His moment on the podium could have been the moment which made all of the challenges worthwhile. Instead, he will be remembered by most, as the two-time drug cheat, who beat bolt and was booed. Let's not forget, he's human like the rest of us, there are two sides to every story and we've moved on from being spectators at gladiator games in ancient Rome.

The modern media is so geared up for scandal and gossip that I'm not sure whether anything can rise above that, whether it's the royal family or sports. It will be interesting to see whether other athletes stand up to support Gatlin or even take a similar approach - if they do, it'll be a revolution of sorts.

Usain Bolt vs Justin Gatlin - Could This Be a Golden Age of Athletics.... If We Forget the Doping Bans?

Bolt will need to be nothing short of his best to win, a prospect he has never been faced with before. We could very well see some world records broken in Beijing, as well as returning to the classic era when a victory was taken by a hundredth of a second, not a metre. But who will be the one crossing that lines first. For once, that is very much open to debate.

So no, I didn't see Gatlin. I wouldn't want to see him, and not only will I not be watching if I get the chance, I'll be going out of my way to *not* watch him. Gatlin versus Bolt showdown? No thanks.

It's not the place of a sports company to inflict a ban on an athlete. That's down to the governing body of the sport. If the IAAF have cleared Gatlin to compete then he should have the same opportunities as anyone else who is on that start line.

Colin Jackson's reaction to the men's 100m track finals was almost as entertaining as the actual race: "Here he comes, here he comes, the big man, the big man, the big man" he shouted to fellow pundits Denise Lewis and Michael Johnson.

Athletics is now seeking salvation from the stains that have been ingrained into the sport by cowardly drug-cheats. Dwain Chambers is the one everyone talks about - he is, to an extent, the victim of a witch-hunt - it does seem that Chambers is the man always singled out in any discussion of doping in athletics.
