As two of the world’s most famous living sprinters, Jamaica’s Usain Bolt and America’s Carl Lewis should be celebrating each other, but instead they’re throwing shots at one another.

Soon after winning gold in the 200 meters at the London Olympics for 100 and 200 titles at back-to-back games, Bolt said he had lost all respect for Lewis after the American runner was quoted as saying that the Jamaican athletics program failed to include adequate drug testing.

Lewis, who also competed in the long jump, won nine gold medals at four different Olympics. Bolt made history this Olympics after becoming the first Olympian to repeat gold in the 200-meter sprint, and became the first Olympian to win back-to-back gold medals in the 100-meter sprint since Lewis.
