Usain Bolt – The Greatest Ever

leave a comment »

I am not normally an athletics fan but ever since the 100m final at Beijing last year, I have been captivated by Usain Bolt, Olympic Champion and World Record Holder. So I had to tune in for the 100m final at the World Championships in Berlin tonight. I was not disappointed.

9.58 seconds. The fastest time ever by over a tenth of a second

He is truly phenomenal. Tyson Gay ran the fastest non-Bolt time of all time and still lost by a massive 0.13 seconds – some 2 metres. Dwain Chambers ran it 10 seconds and still finished 6th, proving the high standard of the field. But none could compare to the 22 year old Jamaican superstar, who once again proved he will dominate sprinting for many years to come.

P.S. Michael Schumacher is still a cock. But Luca Badoer – what an inspired choice. Go him!
