Comment from rpsboyz - the usual cocky Jamaicans rant
Has anyone else noticed how cocky and arrogant the Jamaica runners are when they win a race? Talk about poor winners.

rpsboyz, the Jamaicans are just as cocky and arrogant AFTER they win a race as the Americans are BEFORE they lose a race.
Who wouldn't be happy right? This must be the first time Jamaica could compete with the United States on level ground and they are winning. For years, they have to put up with steroid powered athletes coming from the U.S. Now it is their time to shine, so to speak.
"Is it just me or does Usain Bolt look just like T.O. He has that same annoying swagger and one-upmanship. He is also completely classless and it is a shame that he broke the great Johnson's record. The record should belong to someone with class. Bolt is the opposite of what the olympics are about. The olympics are about the joy of competition, it is not right to show up your fellow athletes."
"christiano get real jumping around like an #### and posing in front of the record time gee .phelps was involved in seven world records and 1 olympic record and not once did he act like bolt. Pumping the fist ,slapping the chest,raising the one all in class but bolt just showed me the true meaning of a M_O_N_K_E_Y" jtdf - poster
Another Bolt is monkey comment from Fox Sports members. These internet toughies are disgusting.
I saw Phelps pump his fist in his team's victory over France at a relay - I didn't think he was cocky (the American was ecstatic after a close win). Why is Bolt being singled out now? Is it because of the race thing again or he tends to threaten Phelps dominance of the spotlight in the US press? (C'mon you think Phelps saved the Olympics? Cycling saved the Games for the British. Other countries concentrate on their own winners! It saved the Olympics for them. Get real.)
Only in America where Phelps and Bolt are being compared to each other! lol
If Bolt is an American, I'm sure none of the cocky rant would come out - some fans will even justify it as normal celebration like what Team USA is doing - dunking and making faces afterwards. It is a fundamental rule in Basketball that after making a spectacular, monstrous dunk it is imperative the dunker should contort his face like he smelled someone else's fungi-infested foot or like he is about to cry
