Usain Bolt rips Carl Lewis, "I've lost all respect for him"

There might be few doubt in the world that Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is one of the fastest men alive at this point but it appears that Usain doesn't have much respect for a former USA sprinter.

Former USA sprinter Carl Lewis in the past has been critical of drug testing in the sport and made a comment previously that Jamaican athletes should be tested more stringently.

Bolt took the comment as a shot at him and after winning the 200 meters at the 2012 Summer Olympics, he ripped Lewis:
"The things he (Lewis) says about the track athletes, it's really downgrading for another athlete to be saying something like that about other athletes. I think he is just looking for attention really because nobody really talks much about him," Bolt said.

Bolt went on, "It was really sad for me when I heard the other day what he was saying, it was upsetting. It was all about drugs, about drugs stuff for me... So, for me, I've lost all respect for him, all respect."
