It is impossible to watch that without a look of sheer wonder on your face.

I squeeled 9.58! At the top of my voice when I saw the time, I just don't know how that's possible. What surprised me this time was how fast he seemed to be going, sounds stupid but previously he's just glided across the track this time he was justfucking gunning it all the way.

Such an amazing guy as well. The only thing is the 100m is totally over now until Bolt retires and I just can't see anyone getting close to that record.

What fool said Athletics was boring


I think I shouted "HOLY gooseberry fool" when I saw the time.

Amazing, absolutely amazing.

I also find it incredible that Gay can break the American record and come second. You would never imagine that 3 years ago.

If Usain Bolt broke the record in the race, imagine how fast those photographers were going! :lol:

What is crazy is that take Bolt out of the equation (his Beijing time too) and Gay absolutely obliterated his 9.77 WR.

No Bolt and people would be saying about him what they are about Bolt. Just goes to show there really are no words.

We need to extract litres of Bolt's semen and use it to create a race of super-humans.

FOR THE GOOD OF HUMANITY.

These 10k runners are freaks of nature, they run faster than I can after having already gone 9900m

4x100 is always one of the last events, only 4x400 comes after it on the track

That would be great, I'm in on Saturday. 4x100 could be awesome.
