World’s Fastest Man Heads to Olympics 2012
World’s fastest man is now ready to take the lead as London Olympics 2012 comes in top speed. Dominating the world of track and field with a record breaking 9.58 and 9.76 in a 100m run, Usain Bolt had shown wonder in the eyes of the amazed spectators.
The 25-year-old Jamaican sprinter declared his intention to “amaze” the world in the 2012 Olympics. He also mentioned his desire of being a living legend in the world of sports. Holding the world record of 9.58, Usain Bolt is believed to be capable of running below 9.50. And if the weather condition permits, he may have exceeded his own record to an outstanding 9.40 seconds performance.
According to Glenn Mills, head coach of the Racers Track Club: Usain has trained well and is definitely in good condition. He also added that he expect Usain to “do well and run a good race” seeing that he is in good shape.
Bolt plans to run in the 100- and 200- meter races and the 4x100 relay in the 2012 Olympics. He has to battle his Jamaican countryman Yohan Blake, 22, the 2011 world champion and Asafa Powell, 29, a former record-holder in the 100. Some of his would-be challengers are U.S. sprinters Tyson Gay, 29, a former world champion, Walter Dix, 26, who won two bronze medals at the 2008 Beijing Games, and Justin Gatlin, 30, an Olympic champion in 2004.
“It shows that the intensity of the competition is good and it’s going to be a great season, but I’m never worried. I’m in great shape and really focused on what I need to do. It will be the most awesome show, and I’m going there to do great things.” (For Fastest Man, A Slower step Toward London. Brian Pinelli, May 26, 2012)
