Usain Bolt Wins Men's 100m at Beijing Olympics with a New World Record



He is now the biggest star sprinter since Carl Lewis, crushing the competition in the men's 100m final at the Beijing Olympics, 2008, Bolt ran 9.69sec to break his own world record. His performance was absolutely scintillating, striking 0.03 sec off his own world record for the event.

As he crossed the finish line, Bolt seemed as though he was laughing at the prospect of another smashed record, his confidence ever present in yet another moment of glory. "I've been training all year for this,'' he said. "I could maybe go 9.60 the way I looked."

With his extraordinary performance in this sprint, Bolt may very well have become the golden boy that the Olympics has so been longing for since the sprinting days of Carl Lewis.

He will be soon to test that theory, when tonight he has the chance to be the first man since Lewis won the 100m and 200m sprint events at the Olympics in the same year. If his recent sprint was anything to go by, there is nothing that is going to stop him.

Hey newsSource guy. Thank you so much for this post (Bolt 100m). I'm sure you will soon be posting his 200m win also. I cannot wait. I missed the race live and have looked everywhere. The mainstream coverage is garbage. No one anywhere shows it in full, even on the Net. Anyway, I hope you post it soon. Thank you so much.

Thanks, I tried for half an hour to find this video, and you were the only one having it still (as you know, it has been erased from everywhere else). So, good work! Maybe you should post links to your blog on youtube and other sites.
