Usain Bolts into history yet again
Jamaican sprinter Usain ‘lightning’ Bolt has broken the 100m world record once again, with a time of 9.58 sec, in the final of the World Athletics Championship at Berlin on Sunday 16 August 2009.
Precisely a year after he set a new world record at the Beijing Olympics, he shaved off an amazing eleven hundredths of a second off his previous record to wow the Berlin crowd.
Tyson (Jay and Asafa Powell, who finished second and third respectively, were left in the lurch as Bolt shot out of the blocks, to leave the other competitors behind, intent on making yet more sporting history.
“I was feeling good after the semis. I knew it was going to be a great race and I executed it.” Bolt said. “It’s a great time, a great feeling. I feel good in myself and I knew I could do it.
“There was a big build up, great atmosphere. It wasn’t going to be an easy race but I had a perfect start and just went from there. I came out here to do my best and I did what I had to do.”
