Bolt lacks the pain tolerance and heart to become a great 400 runner, and doesn't seem to take much pride in his 400 races. This is exactly the opposite of Tyson Gay who takes tremendous pride in his 400 performances and once said that any elite short sprinter (100/200) should be able to run a decent 400 when they're in shape. If only Bolt had Gay's heart, Michael Johnson's WR might be in jeopardy.
Bolt doesn't have heart? That's the most ludicrous statement I have ever heard said about Bolt.
Bolt has the heart of a champion. Two Olympic Games 6 Gold medals.
Bolt does not have to prove anything to anyone that he is the GOAT by running the 400m. He simply does not like the event.
