Jamaican Usain Bolt left his rivals trailing to win gold in the Olympic 100m final with a new world record. Bolt was well clear at 60m and although he eased down and started to celebrate 15 metres from the line, he still set a new mark of 9.69 seconds. "My one aim was just to be a champion. That is what I came here to do," said the 21-year-old Bolt. I told you I was going to be number one and I did just that. I got a great start. I was getting good starts all the way up to the final. I was getting better and better. It was crazy - phenomenal." Bolt, who becomes Jamaica's first men's 100m Olympic champion, insisted his decision to celebrate even before crossing the line was not designed to be disrespectful. "I wasn't bragging," he said. "When I thought I had the field covered I was celebrating. I was happy." As for setting a new world record, he added: "I didn't know I'd broken it until my victory lap. "When I ran the earlier round I felt the world record was possible because it's a new track, it's fast. But I came out here just to win."
Really the first real amazing moment of the Olympics
Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.
I guessed you missed the 8 medals Michael Phelps won?Anyway, it was pretty awesome. The guy was just out there having fun. And he has years ahead of him to break his own record (which he'll do, easily, time and time again as he needs to).
No, but everyone knew Phelps was going to win a shit load of metals after his last appearance at the Olympics what was it, 5 he won in 2004? So it wasn't really all that incredible.
Really the first real amazing moment of the Olympics and I'm glad I was able to watch it as it happened. Usain Bolt could easily have ran this in about 9.4's/9.5's and left everyone way way behind, and that was despite him pulling up at about 8.9 secs on the clock. Usain Bolt - Legend.
So I'm guessing you slept through all 8 of Phelps Gold Medals, including their awesome comeback against the french in that relay?Seriously, cut the American hating shit out. First you go on about basketball, then ignore Phelps, saying this was the first amazing moment? It was amazing, but not the first.
I honestly forgot and in any case, I think everyone knew Phelps WOULD do it. He's a phenomenal athlete but the talent pool he was competing at this olympics was nowhere near as good than at Athens which is why he's beaten the record. (No Ian Thorpe "The Thorpedo" ffs!)Usain Bolt on the other hand was in there against more established runners like Asafa Powell and still made them all look weak as hell. 8 golds is amazing but the way Bolt blew away his nearest rivals was just godly.Phelps 8 victories together = amazing.But any of Phelps victories < Bolt's WR.
