Every time Gatlin, the world's fastest man in 2014 and again so far this season, races down a track he is not asking us to somehow believe that a twice-banned, unrepentant drug cheat, coached by another unrepentant, banned drug cheat, can, after missing four prime years of his career, at 33 run faster clean than Ben Johnson did in Seoul. No, with each head-shaking victory, Gatlin is telling the world he doesn't care what anybody thinks; each race an obscene gesture, telling us in fewer than 10 or 20 seconds what we can do with our disbelief, our indignation, our sense of fair play.
