This young man never ceases to amaze me. A year to the day when he set the world record at the Olympics in Beijing, China, Usain "Lightning" Bolt does it again. He ran 100 meters in 9.58 seconds... into a headwind. This guy is a freak. There are no other words to describe him. For him, running really fast is an innate ability. No performance enhancing drugs either. It is my understanding that track and field athletes get tested frequently-- I'm talking before and after races, random testing multiple times each week, etc. So it would be almost impossible to get away with it. What's next for the kid? He should be getting a call from the producers of Entourage pretty soon I think.
