Bolted in

Olympic Rant #13 It is 9.63 of dousing the doubters

HE was never going to break his own world record but Usain Bolt put his doubters, including me, to the sword with  a blistering Olympic-record time of 9.63s.Yohan Blake is second in 9.75 secs, Justin Gatlin third in 9.79 and Tyson Gay fourth in 9.80 sec
Gatlin has a fast start … but Bolt rounds him him up up and Blake chases home the champ.Yohan Blake is second in 9.75 secs, Justin Gatlin third in 9.79 and Tyson Gay fourth in 9.80 sec. Seven of the eight finalists break 10 seconds – only Asafa Powell, who pulled up and finished in 11.99 sec – was outside it.


Well done Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake!


Tell ut, Peter!
