Frasi Ben Johnson (sprinter)

„Don't tell me I cheated the system because that's [expletive]. I didn't get treated fairly by the system. They cast me out and they were jealous because I turned in the fastest time ever run by a human and it was impossible at the time.“

— Ben Johnson (sprinter)
Quoted in Stan Grossfield, [ "Johnson has been slow to admit wrongdoing,"]] The Boston Globe (2005-04-28)
