The current top sports post on Reddit, a social news aggregation website, is the all-time list for the men’s 100m. Names associated with doping have been crossed off.

Looking at the list, the only non-crossed-off name is that of Usain Bolt, the eight-time Olympic champion. He finished third to Justin Gatlin at the IAAF World Championships on Saturday in London. Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic 100m champion, has served two doping bans in his career.

Other names on the list include Tyson Gay, Yohan Blake and Asafa Powell. Bolt holds the top-three times in history during legal conditions – not wind-aided in other words – including the current world record of 9.58. Note that the list does not include wind-aided marks, like Andre De Grasse’s 9.69 clocking this year.
