Usain Bolt, a 100m and 200m Olympic champion who hails from Jamaica, again broke his own 100m world record of 9.69 he made last 2009 Beijing Olympics with an impossible World Record run of 9.58 at the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics at the 1936 Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Germany on Sunday August 16, 2009.
The fastest man on earth has shown what he can do again in the 100m.
Tyson Gay ran faster than any American ever has, but it still wasn’t good enough to challenge Usain Bolt in the 100-meter final at the World Track and Field Championships
USA’s Tyson Gay came in 2nd with a United States record of 9.71 seconds while Bolt’s fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell claimed bronze with a 9.84.
Bolt said, “I was ready. I was feeling good after the semi-finals. I knew it was going to be a great race and I executed it. It’s a great time. I did well and I feel good. It was a big build-up. I have to rest up now and no partying for me and come back out Tuesday.”
“I did my best,” Gay said. “I did good. It just wasn’t good enough.”
