There's no doubt anymore...

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt won the men's 200-metre race in 19.30 seconds this morning, beating the world record set by American Michael Johnson at Atlanta 1996. This goes along with his earlier win in the 100m, which he ran in 9.69 seconds, beating both the world record and the Olympic record, the latter set by Canadian Donovan Bailey also in Atlanta. This proves without doubt Usain Bolt is the fastest human being on planet Earth.

Since one guy has won both Olympic sprint races, and broke the world record in both races, I'm sure there's no need for another "who's really the fastest man" race.



Michael Johnson. What a chicken.

I wonder if Usain will be considered for his country's Bobsleigh team in 2010. It will be well worth the trip to Whistler.
