He left 0.05 seconds on the table in the 100 during his chest thumping, and ran into a headwind in the 200! He is sensational.

The Jamaican women aren't too bad either, swept the 100 and won the 200 today.

This is from the 200m last night.

The two other runners were disqualified, so silver went to the guy who's not even in the picture. At this rate, they'll have to invent a new form of widescreen just so they can fit in the second and third placed guys.

every now and then a secretariat, a cassius clay, is born and the stars shine on them for being in the right place at the right time

he'll probably set one or 2 more records before peaking

unbelievable for his height

Yes, sure reminds of a certain Ben Johnson.More so because of the lack of any independent anti-dope agencies in Jamaica.His height is a big advantage(ironically, the same height is seen to be a disadvantage in sprints). But then, Michael Phelps also did win with a lot to spare in most of his swimming events.

There was a Dutch guy that also got disqualified, who's the guy in second place in the picture. The guy who won the silver finished 20m behind Bolt!

What makes me the most suspicious is the fact that Bolt seems to do it with such ease, almost like he's actually running slower to not make people as suspicious.

But you have to admit that he has a great surname for a sprinter.

Regardless of drug use he is still the fastest man ever, easily. Like Carl Lewis yelling to test Ben Johnson after he kicked his ass in '88 (still bitter,lol) when it was shown he was doping himself at the time but somehow his positive test was overturned so he could participate, hmmmmmm.

Doesn't matter about the lack of a Jamaican anti doping agency. This meet is covered by WADA and the athletes' "samples" will be kept for years and tested with future technologies to ensure they are clean. If not, I'm sure medals will be stripped.
