Video of Usain Bolt’s 200-Meter
The video’s a little grainy. I’ll fix that when it a better one comes up, but until then, Bolt’s otherworldly performances continue to jaw-drop, astound and yes, amaze. Consider this: Bolt has twice broken the record for the 200-meter dash, a standard that, until Michael Johnson came along in 1996, stood for 17 years. So, from 1980 until 2008, the record was beaten all of once. Now, thanks to the human hurricane they call Usain, it’s been broken twice in less than a year.
19.19. That’s what Bolt ran to break his previous record of 19.30. Folks, that’s more impressive than the 9.58 he ran earlier this week.
