Bo's best was 10.44.

Comparing him to Usain is just ridiculous. A better comparison would be that Bo ran a 100 meter .05 seconds faster than the fastest woman, Florence Griffith-Joyner, who ran a 10.49 100 meter in 1988...which is, of course, extremely impressive!..but comparing him to Usain when he was so far away from the 10 second barrier, which 83 men have broken in history, is ridiculous.
