Update: Usain Bolt wins 2012 100 Meter Final in London (Gif)
Angel Hernandez, the strength and conditioning coach for Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, recently became employed by Juan Manuel Marquez for his big Manny Pacquiao boxing fight this Saturday night. Not much is known about Angel Hernandez, other than he trains what has become known as the most amazing freak of nature, Bolt, in sports the last three years. By testing your sports memory, does BALCO remind you of anything?
From his Twitter last week, BALCO founder Victor Conte reminded many people of a steroid dealer named Angel "Memo" Heredia. A man who once testified that he gave former sprinting champion Marion Jones steroids. Conte then decided to tell the viewers that Angel Hernandez was the assumed name for Angel Heredia, as he coaches Usain Bolt and now Juan Manuel Marquez.
In the now infamous 2008 sports trial of many of the most known champions in track and field, like Marion Jones, Justin Gatlin and Tim Montgomery, "Memo" Heredia was the federal investigator's guy. In 2005 federal investigators confronted Heredia with evidence of money laundering and drug trafficking. One way or another, Angel
Angel Heredia did not serve any jail time for his charges. Following all the deals and judicial system interactions about BALCO, Heredia went out to try and become strength and conditioning coaches for more sports figures. Usain Bolt hired him, which gave him integrity as a coach. Who would not want the same coach who has, somehow, made Bolt the greatest athlete in human history? Juan Manuel Marquez had to have that guy in his corner for his biggest fight to date.
Interesting to note here, many people are speculating that Marquez has never been this "bulk" before a fight. (Other people also would say, now this makes it an even fight, steroid boxer vs. steroid boxer.)
Nobody truly cares much about steroids in boxing, unless it involves Manny Pacquiao and blood tests or, now, Mayweather waiting for the right time to make the fight happen so that he knows Pacquiao has been off them for a couple of years. Steroids in track and field though, especially involving Usain Bolt is a sports story of the year.
Every four years is when sports fans tune into watch the sport and how amazingly the runners have evolved from a 10.00 seconds to win a 100m sprint, now to a 9.7 seconds win. The fact that Usain Bolt has the former steroid snitch at his practices each week building him into a London Olympics gold champion, should raise some eyebrows and scrutiny.
With just over eight months remaining until the event, could track and field become like a political campaign against Usain Bolt? Similar to what is happening to Republican GOP Herman Cain and his four (?) touchy feely harassment claims, other track and field runners may have people from their own camp digging into the endeavor tactics of Angel Heredia with Usain Bolt.
The combination of the title "fastest man in the world" and a coach known as a "steroid dealer" will always have the term "dirty" next to whatever achievements the athlete can accomplish. Doubt will always remain now with Usain Bolt.
