We continue to witness the unfolding of the greatest Athlete in history!
Here is is in Brussels doing what he does best. Notice that he is not just coasting because he knows he is going to win, but he is putting his all into the race…until the last 20 meters that is.
The stadium comes packed every time because of him. His followers come with great expectation just see if he is going to do something spectacular.
They have absolutely no idea what he is going to do in a race…whether he is going to deliver another amazing record or just have some fun…and that’s one of the many things that makes him special.
Update (8/28/09): Usain Bolt wins again at the Golden league in Zurich, Switzerland.
Bolt continued his winning ways yesterday at the golden league in Zurich, Switzerland where he won the 100m in a time of 9.81 seconds.
Though the time was not as fast as the world record 9.58 he set in Berlin two weeks ago, it was enough to carve out yet another win for the track Phenom.
…as he continue his dominance on the international circuit.
Since his famous win at the Reebok in New york last year, he has gone from strength to strength and is already recognized as the greatest athlete that ever lived!
It is truly hard to envision anyone beating him right now. No doubt, he is at the top of his game.
He is now the face of track around the world and every time he steps on the track the world wait in great anticipation for something special.
Update (8/20/09): Usain Bolt shatters his 200m world record in Berlin – 19.19 s!
Yes, He did it again!
When Usain Bolt stepped out on the track today, many doubted whether he would break his own 200m record – 19.30s which he set in the Bejing Olympics last year.
Boy, were they wrong?
It was clear at the end of the race that he had every intention of destroying his old record.
Within seconds after the start of the race, he blew past his competitors around the bend and powered his way down the track for the last 100m grimacing all the way across the finish line.
When it was over, the clock read 19.19 seconds. Unbelievable!
Absolutely! We are witnessing the unfolding of the greatest track athlete in history…and he may just be getting started.
It is going to take a mammoth effort by some future athlete to undo these records, but as we are witnessing here today, what we once thought was impossible, may just be within reach after all.
I am just glad that I am alive to witness this today.

Update: Usain Bolt Smashes the world Record in Berlin – 9.58s
Usain Bolt did it again! He smashed the 100 m in Berlin today August 15, 2009 and beat Tyson Gaye and Asafa Powell into second and third place respectively.
Wow! All I can say is Phenomenal… Re-live the moment in the video below…
Bolt ‘a de’ best when it comes to track in Jamaica! Absolutely, he is second to none when it comes to his game, the 100m & 200m sprints!
Here he is breaking the world record in the 100m at the Bejing Olympic in the 1st Video (above).
…and breaking the world record again in the 200m at Bejing (below).
…and breaking yet another world record in the Manchester 150m street race on May 17, 2009 in the video below…
The 100m and 200m belong to him and he is blessed with the talent, genes, strength, confidence, and everything else necessary to dominate them. I have seen athletes in my time and they are all good in their own rights, but none like bolt.
He is to track what Jordon was to basketball. He is that good! Period!
Like I said before, when you are good you are just good and there is not a darn thing anyone can do about it.
This is his time and it is great for Jamaican sports. I hope he dominates for a long time to come. Go Usain!
Enjoy the videos…there is a lot more coming so stay tuned!
Update: Usain Wins again at Crystal Palace in England on July 24, 2009. See the video below…
All eyes are now on the World championship in a couple weeks when he will take on Tyson Gaye. This is going to be the race of the century, because Tyson Gaye looks good!
…but, I will bet on Bolt any day. Trust me, he will be ready to run.
