Usain Bolt is fast. The man who solidified himself as a worldwide phenom at last summer’s Olympics added another accomplishment to an already impressive resume only moments ago.

Bolt ran 100 meters in 9.58 seconds Sunday at world championships, turning his showdown against Tyson Gay into a rout and putting to rest the questions that went unanswered last time he set the record — at his showboating Olympic run of 9.69 seconds.

It was the biggest change in the record since electronic time was introduced in 1968. It came very close to the 9.55-second time that an American professor said Bolt would have run in Beijing had he run all out in the Olympic 100 finals. – ESPN

T-minus three years until Bolt and Michael Phelps make the 2012 Olympics in London their personal playground…again
