Bolt, is an absolute legend. 9.58? Who could have thought that?

Absolutely staggering performance. He just toyed with the limits of our belief. If you are curious to know how fast he might have gone if he had not stopped sprinting near the end of last 10m in last year’s Olympics now have your answer.This race proved human could run even faster.

He could have gone faster... if he had leaned forward at the end, he could have gained a 0.02 seconds or something.

I will reserve the accolades till his test results are published. If he's not clean his accomplishments mean zilch to me.

Apatly named Bolt, he is Usain Bolt.
The term was already there, but now he would stamp it.
"He bolted like Bolt".

http://i.imgci.com/espncricinfo/ciColumnist_leftquote.gif When I was really small, I loved the Pakistan cricket team. Waqar Younis was one of the greatest bowlers ever, and I was a bowler so I really enjoyed watching him. I was a big fan until I got older, when I noticed that I should actually support my home team...when I was little, it was all about Pakistan. http://i.imgci.com/espncricinfo/ciColumnist_rightquote.gif

And people here at BC criticized Shakib to say almost the same thing but in a different flavor.

I think the criticism had to do with our history with Pakistan as a nation. I'm not saying it was valid and neither am I saying it was unwarranted. After all, there's no right or wrong, black or white. Everything's either red, blue, yellow or one of 6 billion shades of any of the three.

Waqar was one of the best that I have ever seen. I was a big fan.

He has done it again. New world record, 19.19 sec, in 200 m after a "tired race" in his own admission.

Unbeliavable. He is crossing the boundaries set by human athletes.

UK viweres can watch it here .. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/athletics/8213036.stm

Hmm, Bolt maight as well be the Donald Bradman of Athletics. About Phelps, I'm not so sure, there was Thorpedo and e faded gradually. Tiger woods would be in the "greatest" league. Roger Federer is also exceptional, the greatest up to now, but he is not inhuman like Bolt or Don or Woods. Someone might pass his achievements one day.
Come to think of it, people around 1910-50 had Babe Ruth and Sir Don from the sporting greatests. Then came a brief lull, but Ali was more than enough for the ensuing period, I'd go on and say he is still the greatest personality sports has produced. 1980-90, we had Navratilova and Graf and Sena. Pete Sampras was thought to be the greatest in 2000, But Fed has quashed that. Lara, Tendulkar, Warne and Murali are the greats in cricket who are not going to be replaced anytime soon. Maybe in Warne, Murali we had seen the greatest spinners cricket will ever produce, no one in the new generation seem to be able to reach their heights.

But Bolt is just so much above the league, he has already become the greatest sprinter in my book.

Who were your heroes when you were young?

“Actually, when I was really small I loved the Pakistan cricket team. Waqar Younis was one of the greatest bowlers ever, and I was a bowler so I really enjoyed watching him. I was a big Pakistan fan until I got older, when I noticed that I should actually support my home team.”

But what if Pakistan had played the Windies?

“I would still have supported Pakistan, that’s what I’m saying – when I was little, it was all about Pakistan.”
