Usain Bolt does it again…

Was there any surprise in the men’s 100 meter sprint? Not if you’re a fan of Jamaican superstar track athlete: Usain Bolt. He destroyed the field by racing to a new World record of: 9.58 seconds.

His closest rival was the American Tyson Gay who seemed sluggish compared to Bolt. He ran a respectable 9.71 seconds taking home the silver medal.

Asafa Powell Jamaican team mate to Bolt placed 3rd and took home the bronze medal. Powell ran a 9.84

Bolt beats Gay again!

“I got a pretty good start,” Bolt said. “I was there at 20 meters and that was it.”

Despite being beat again by Bolt again in a much anticipated head-to-head match-up, gay was gracious in defeat.

“I’m happy he got it. I’m so happy,” Gay said. “I’m happy he ran 9.5 because I knew he could do it, and I know I can do it and I’m happy for him.”

Bolt ran a 9.69 in Beijing last summer, and took the world by storm. It’s unbelievable to think he bettered his personal best by .11 of a second with stiff competition & all the flashing lights on him expecting him to do it again!

According to the American:   “It just wasn’t enough today,” Gay said. “I ran my best race I could run. I put my all into it. I got through the little groin situation and tried to put it together.”
