This Guy is As Quick as a Hiccup! Usain Bolt has turned the Olympics into his personal showcase! Running the 100-meter dash in a stunning 9.69 seconds for a blowout win that could have been even worse.
It was no contest as the 21-year-old Jamaican took a huge lead halfway through the race, then held his arms out wide, turned his palms up, pounded his chest and started celebrating a good 10 strides before he reached the finish line.
He broke his own record, set in May in New York, by .03 second and became the first sprinter to set the world record in an Olympic final since Donovan Bailey ran 9.84 at the 1996 Atlanta Games.
Bolt beat Richard Thompson of Trinidad and Tobago by 0.2 second – more than a body length – while American Walter Dix was third.
