Track & Field
By now you know the scoop: Usain Bolt holds World Records for the 100m, 200m, and the 4x100m relay and Olympic Records in the 100m and 200m. He has three shiny gold medals that have Olympic memories engraved in them and even more World Championship medals to match. In a word, Usain Bolt is fast. Really fast.
The 2011 Track and Field World Championships’ world record drought ends in dramatic fashion on the very last race of the competition with Jamaica’s powerhouse 4x100 meter relay team pacing out a barely believable time of 37.04 seconds.
Chalking up yet another historic mark, Usain Bolt takes the gold in the 200 meter dash with a time of 19.40 seconds – the fastest time clocked this year and the fourth fastest time ever run.
After cruising into the semi-finals with a comfortable yet field-leading time of 20.30 seconds, Usain Bolt continued his controlled dominance over the competition with a safe 20.31 second semi-final performance to secure a place in the 200 meter final on September 3rd at 8:20 am EST (21:20 Korean time).
In a little more than a week, Usain Bolt will toe the line in the 100m heats to start his 2011 Track & Field World Championship campaign to show the world why he's the World's Fastest Man.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to run a sub-4 minute mile? Or what type of workouts your competition is doing that gets them onto the winners' podium time and again?
The Fastest Man in the World and his teammates will be breaking PRs in true Jamaican fashion during the 2012 Olympics.
