I cant wait to Sr worlds! i say he takes down Roy Martins Jr.World record of 20.13. I also think if he did not have that stomach bug the other day he could of went sub 45. He ran 45.3 earlier this year and shut it down early on a wet track in the rain.

Bolt ran this race like he was possessed! This was the first time I have seen him race and he just destroyed the field. Also, at the time of the race it was cold and raining hard AND the runners were facing a pretty big wind in the homestretch. This makes his 20.4 pretty freakin impressive.

In the CBC interview after Bolt was serious as hell and it seems like he cant wait for the WCs.

I wish I could buy stock in things like ‘Bolt will run sub20 in the 200m before he turns 19.’


It was a good race. HE was with the american coming down on the bend. and the last 4 strides off the bend he made this sudden burst and just pulled away like it was nothing.

I hope he upsets alot of those other world class sprinters. that’s going to hurt. losing to a 16 year old kid…


U know it’s impressine when Charlie says wow!

That’s the first time I’ve seen him run. A man amongst boys. Kind of like the Lebron James of sprinting.
