Usain Bolt

... 9.69s and he slowed up. Sick.

He'll aim for 9.5x later this year, I bet. Then his ultimate goal wil be 9.4x, which should stand for quite some time.

I pray that he isn't doped up. Please no Ben Johnson repeat!

A long time track fan, coasting in a final has never made sense to me.
Perhaps he is a dope.

Someone apparently got to Usain and told him to grow-up. His 200 semi was much better.

Scintillating ?
Could there exist an unscintillating world record ?

He was probably faster last year when he quit before the finish line.
...But he's another year closer to becoming an adult.

He probably was, according to some math or physics professor. I read in an article that some professor had figured that if Usain hadn't slowed down at Beijing, he could have had 9.55 that day. Still, just sickening because I did some figuring and tho it may not be the most accurate mathematically, his 9.58 would equal something like 3.83 in the 40.

He really is fun to watch.

The sheer speed generated by that huge stride and how smoothly he moves are really impressive.

I often find myself in awe when observing what the human body is truly capable of doing.
