Hail the lightning Bolt! 9.69s – new 100m world record!

9.69 seconds at Beijing Olympics 2008

9.69 seconds at Beijing Olympics 2008

Well, for me, track and field event is the Olympics! Forget about tennis, forget about badminton or even basketball, i think the mother of all sports event for the Olympics is at the track and field. I was following very closely on the progress of 100m title contenders and I thought it’s going to be Powell, Gay or Bolt among the top three but i was wrong. Probably there was too much hype over at the media but Gay wasn’t even in the finals and Powell was fifth. And the champ is? Lightning Boltz !!! Coming out of nowhere to compete in 100m recently, this guy is now the world record holder of 100m event, at a time of 9.69 seconds! And i saw that guy turning back and raising his arm towards finishing line instead of pushing all the way, and that’s still a world record, gosh, how fast can this guy go huh? With no one clearly pushing him till the finishing line, i can’t imagine what will his time be if Powell or Gay is in top form as well. Anyway, congrats to Bolt and i still think it’s a god damn good race tonight for the 100m. And i’ll be wait for another 4 years to watch this event, till then… ๐Ÿ˜‰
