Well who said that lightening doesn’t continue to strike in the same spots, in Usain’s case was crazy! Running like the wind, well that’s crazy too! And Usain Bolt and his now famous lightening bolt pose, broke yet another record! This past Sunday at the World Track & Field Championships in Berlin the 22 year old Usain Bolt ran the 100 meter (100 yd. dash) final to the time of 9.58 seconds!
Not in at least nine decades or so has anyone ever ran off .11 seconds of time from one year to the other! Usain’s time in the 2008 Olympic gold medal race was a winning time of 9.69 seconds, and now the The Jamacian has taken the sport of Track & Field to another level! A level of unbelievable! He is a large statured man standing at 6 feet 5 inches and when you watch the tape it takes him a long time to get straight up, and that may just be the factor. The longer he is down has helped him to overcome the fact that his is tall for a sprinter. Whatever the reason is that makes Usain Bolt run like his heels are on fire, it is an amazing feat! As he runs he appears relaxed and almost unchallenged as he sprints round the worlds finest of stadium. His antics as he gets in the blocks may soothe him, and make him more relaxed. Perhaps playing with the psyche of those next to him on the starting line.
But finally I would be remiss if I did not mention the second place finisher, Tyson Gay who is astronomical in his own way as well. His performance was fabulous as he ran the race of a lifetime as well with his finish of 9.71! Riding in the tail-wind of a lightening bolt, the American created a twister of his own running a fine race!
Kudos to the fastest alive!
