WORLD’S FASTEST HUMAN, MEN’S 100 M HEATS UP IN BEIJING

In DIASPORA TALK, HOT BUTTON TOPIC, INTERNATIONAL NEWS, NCAA 2008, SPORTS on August 16, 2008 at UTC.26.31.

In the quarterfinal of the men’s 100 meters race, American Tyson Gay wasn’t at full form. Certainly, a few weeks ago he pulled his hamstring, yet this was just his second race since that incident. Gay finished 2nd in his heat, that saw Richard Thompson blow by him effortlessly. If Gay is to win gold he will need to step up his game.

Richard Thompson, from Trinidad is the NCAA reigning champion. He represented LSU in those games.

Other notable athletes in this race were Usain Bolt, Jamaica, smoked his heat barely breaking a sweat, even mockingly turning his head side-to-side to look his competitors off as he advanced.

Asafa Powell finished first [10.02] in his heat, followed closely by American Walter Dix[10.08], and Bahamian Derrick Atkins [10.14].

So, in the much anticipated semi-final of the Men’s 100 meter key qualifier race we have the following sprinters:

                                                                1. USAIN BOLT    JAM

2. ASAFA POWELL   JAM

3. TYSON GAY   USA

4. WALTER DIX   USA

5. DARVIS PATTON   USA

6. DERRICK ATKINS   BAH
