Usain Bolt

9.58.

Ridiculous, I never thought I'd see anything like this.

And the crazy thing is he can actually do better than that.

It's probably about what he would have put up if he hadn't actually slowed down coming down the stretch in Beijing.

I wonder who is the last clean sprinter to hold the record. The sooner I can figure this out, the sooner I will be able to crown someone the "true" fastest man.

Forgive me if I am not seeing the obvious here, but are you accusing Bolt of not being clean? Just curious.

I don't think Bolt is clean (I have doubts about anybody who has ever run under 9.90), but it doesn't matter to me at all. He's obviously competing on a level playing field with everyone else, so it makes no difference.

He made this same joke during the Barry Bonds fiaso and then claimed Killebrew the HR champ.

what was Bolt's expected time in his next race based on the results here? Actual time mean nothing.

Pythagorean expectation would put him around 9.49, but he continually underperforms due to factors beyond his control (he's unlucky). He starts off the blocks slowly due to inconsistent starting gun shots. Also, the track surface is such that it favors shorter runners.
