I remember the days when anyone getting sub 10secs was good, as the world record had been 9.98seconds and then 9.91 for quite some time.

Over the years, that has slowly been chipped away at. But this guy has come along and smahed the World Record twice now (that I know of). And to knock .11 off an already quick time is amazing.

He looks so calm and relaxed while running. No nerves showing at all.

The next major athletic meet that he runs in, I wouldn't be surprised if he actually managed to get below 9 seconds. Yes, I said sub 9 seconds.

I think he has it in him him.

He is a natural sprinter. No two ways about it. No one on earth catch (literally) catch him at the moment, I feel sorry for those running against him, as they know before they've left the blocks that they've lost to him.

We'll just have to see what he does next.

Cheers

He keeps slowing down toward the end so he can just keep breaking it.

He's fast!

WTF that is 9.595 seconds per 100m....which is ridiculous as he (on the old record) would have broken it twice!

I think he is teasing us, maybe there is a cash prize for world records :P

There is. Well, that is to say some events will offer bonus prizes for breaking a WR at the event. It helps in attracting big names to the events, for one thing, and having a WR broken raises the profile of the event.

With the sorts of times involved in an event like the 100m and 200m, it'd be quite hard to sandbag reliably though, I reckon. What's the difference in effort between 19:19 and 19:30, for example? Could Bolt have known if was going to break the record as he ran? And if he did, could have have known how much he'd break it by, and regulate his run in order to break the record again in 6 months? Far easier with an event such as the high jump.

In 100 meters he won't have time and focus to think "I need to slow down by 3% to break the WR within a reasonable margin" so well.. teasing us would be difficult.
Also I think adrenaline would prevent him from that.

Seeing as Athletes get a very low wage there wouldnt be a cash incentive from their team managers.

There could be some sort of cash from sponsors - Puma are Usain bolt's, i think?

But no-one would other than them parties if he was getting money for it.

Alot of the smaller events would pay the athelets to attend, and to break records there they could possibly be a cash prize, but at the world championships/olympics or just general non-commercial games there wouldnt be
