Simply unbelievable! And winning both in world record time, this is probably one of the best track and field athlete we’ve seen since Carl Lewis and Michael Johnson.
Turning 22 tomorrow, this young Jamaican is simply unstoppable. Breaking records seems so easy for him to do.
100m Men’s finals Gold Medal
Winning with a world record time of 9.69s, surpassing his previous world record of 9.72s.
200m Men’s finals Gold Medal
Winning and smashing one of the longest held world record set by Michael Johnson back in Atlanta 1996 Olympics at 19.32s, Bolt recorded a new benchmark for the world with a world record of 19.30s.
Ironically, he’s so fast that his record in 100m seems a bit short if you times it by 2 and compare it to the 200m record. And the best part of this is, he’s just started running 100m since last year.
Sensational. Inspirational. Motivational. Unbelievable. Impossible. Whatever. We’ve just seen the rise of a new star.
* Coincidentally, I wrote a post about achieving the impossible which mentioned about Usian Bolt, and today he lives up to the expectation.
