Usain Bolt Makes Me Shake My Head in Wonder

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

Imagine what it would be like to run a best-in-the-world-for-2010 time in the 100-meter dash when you have a sore hamstring. It sounds fairly impossible, but then again, we are not Usain Bolt, and well, he is. Oh, and he just accomplished such a feat in Lausanne, Switzerland by posting a 2010-best 9.82 in the 100-meters.

Just in case you didn’t quite get the significance, I’ll repeat it: Usain Bolt just ran a sub-10 second 100-meter on a bad hamstring.

Think about that for a second. Bolt makes a feat that’s faster than all but four 100-meter world records look like a leisurely jog in the park.

While everyone in the free world is riding the nuts of LeBron James, perhaps we should take a moment to recognize the best athlete in the world — one that holds the world hostage with his jaw-dropping athletic performances, and not his decision-making exercises; although, I seem to remember a time when LeBron wowed us too, but that seems like 20 years ago.

Usain Bolt: Still Fast

It must be nice to show up in Korea and run a sub-9.9 100-meter dash without really trying — 9.86 to be exact. Sure, Bolt used some exertion, but it also looked like he was enjoying a brisk jog, especially once he broke away from the pack. If evidence comes out that Bolt is either an alien with a slightly different, but similar physique — one that allows him more leg-generated speed — or he’s from a future where the art of sprinting has been perfected and he simply came back in time to further dominate, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised.
