Kratochvilova had thick armpit hair and a build like Justin Gatlin.

 

So just long term medication then?

Just having a look through the records the mens long jump has been held since 1991 half a metre ahead of what won this championship, that's like winning the 100m by half a second.

Just proves that jumping vertically is really hard and drugs don't help much.

Yeah I have no doubts both Powell and Carl Lewis were on the juice (they both broke the world record in that 1991 competition).

However the winner of this world championship - Manyonga - is the most consistently jumper of 8.50+ jumps in history and could take the record one day. He says he's jumped 8.80+ in training. The guy is a former crystal meth addict as well :lol:

All the track times seem to be shit. Weird.

Unusual. But in saying that, 100m and 200m times have been awful all year. Seems to be a consistent pattern following Olympic years.

The relatively cold weather hasn't helped either, though.

I don't think Lewis ever broke Beamon's record, did he? At least not with a legal wind.
