Usain Bolt: Sets New World Record 9.58 secs

Posted: August 16, 2009 in Track, Usain

Usain Bolt, the West Indian native from Trelawny, Jamaica, has just set another world record.


In Berlin(Germany) at the 2009 World Championships, the best of the best meet at the world famous Olymiastadion for the right to say “my country is the best.” America’s Champion Tyson Gay, who has set a world record last year at 9.71 seconds in the men’s 100m dash, lined up next to Usain Bolt with the intentions of putting America back on top. As fast as he is, he still was no match for Usain who ran a blistering 9.58 seconds, capturing a new record. Smh..This guy is is just way too fast for his own good.

Last summer at the Beijing Olympics, Bolt let his presence be known, and showed to the world that Jamaica is not to be over looked. Setting what was then the fastest time ever recorded in the men’s 100m dash (9.69 seconds), Usain ran like a puma. Today at the World Championships, essentially 5 days before his 23rd birthday, Usain ran like a puma on steroids… lol (no pun intended)!

Shaving a mere .11  seconds off of his last record, Usain Bolt is practically racing against himself.  Keep in mind that Usain Bolt is a fairly large man, standing at 6’5, 200lbs. That’s outlandish comparing his body mass to his speed. can u say velocity?

And as for his country, they hold the top three recorded times in the men’s 100m dash, and it doesn’t look like they are about to let up.

Behind Usain Bolt’s records 9.58 and 9.69, stands fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell with 9.72
