Usain Bolt is Super Human

Usain Bolt posing with his new World Record

By now you may have heard about Usain Bolt’s triumph at last night’s IAAF World Championship in Berlin, Germany.  He broke his own 100 meter World Record by an astounding eleven one-hundredths of a second.  That’s equivalent to an eternity by normal standards.

This is nothing new for Bolt, who has lowered the record from 9.74 to the current 9.58.  Just absurd.

Bolt exploded onto the scene during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing when he broke the 100m world record and then followed it up with another world record in the 200m.  People took to the flamboyant Jamaican’s pre and post race antics, which made him the perfect media piece.  He was the perfect follow up to Michael Phelps’ record breaking performance earlier at the Olympics.

9.58 seems like an unattainable number to me, but it still looks like Bolt is running at half speed.  I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet to assume he’s going to lower the record even more before he’s through.

  1. […] Bolt Breaks 200m Record Posted on August 20, 2009 by colts18 I’m not a fan of Usain Bolt, and I’m pretty convinced he’s on some sort of performance enhancer, but I suppose this is news I should put up on the site. He ran the 200 meter dash today in 19.19 seconds, breaking the previous world record of 19.30. I’m not going to say any more about it because I don’t like him. You can read the ESPN article here.
