well... not quite... but pretty close! that was amazing. didn't even look like he was trying. he slowed down before he even crossed the line! set a world record a 9.69 seconds in the 100 meter dash... AMAZING!

Really impressive. The guy is lean, not bulky but yet i just hope he is clean.
i am reminded of that Ben Johnson chap, and i just hope steriods are not behind this amazing run.

It's not really a spoiler, the rest of the world has already seen this race since it happened about 15 hours ago. Thanks to NBC (have I mentioned how much I HATE THEM), the US is only seeing it in the last 3 hours. Yay.

But it was funny that he basically stopped running in the last ten meters.

Bolt should compete in the long jump and javelin. Imagine him sprinting then letting that javelin Go!

He shouldn't have started celebrating 15m from the finish. Announcers said he could of hit 9.59!:shock:

Wonder how much he could have really run ...

1 Could be saving himself for later (200/realys)
2. trying not to get injured.
3. Pls note that most athletes like to nibble at the WR since they are paid each time they break it. Thus, they do NOT take out big chunks of the WR even when they can.

He's a bit of a showpony but if he can back it up, go for it. If people can back it up, it makes thing a lot more interesting.

Are you serious? I have never understood why people say this. It is not like they are holding up for the final straighaway of a 1500 meter, they are holding up for the final 3 steps of a 100 meter dash. Also you can't seriously argue that since he didn't slow down while facing foward, he was hot dogging to the finish line. He left a trail of mustard.

my wife can't stand him... i kind of like him. he can definitely back it up (not that that makes it right)... he is just so good.

Thread titles like this crack me up. Why put a spoiler alert when it is blatantly obvious what happened?:evil:
