Of the men with the 25 fastest 100-meter dash times in the world, 11 have been busted for steroids, including just recently, Tyson Gay, the American record-holder.
Of this number, 5 of the Top 8 are known cheaters.
What’s remarkable is that world-record holder Usain Bolt is not using or has not been caught using steroids.
This begs the same question we asked during the Lance Armstrong scandal: How does the one guy not cheating have faster times than all the guys who have been busted for cheating?
Below are the Top 25 performances in the 100-meter dash. The names blocked out in yellow have tested positive at one point for PEDs. (Note: These times are not the races that the runners were busted for cheating. That’s why you don’t see the name Ben Johnson. It was found that he ran that 9.79 in the 1988 Summer Olympics while he was juiced and so his mark was stricken from the books. Presumably, these men listed below were clean when they ran their record times, but at some point before or after their historic run, they got busted.)
