The Fastest Man on the Planet

In case you missed it (ESPN mentioned it for ten seconds), Usain Bolt ran a 9.58 yesterday to win a 100M race somewhere over in Asia.

This race pitted Bolt against rival Tyson Gay. Bolt has been cruising through races lately, and Gay has been putting up some good times. These two were slated to meet in Beijing but injury forced Gay out of the race.

Bolts 9.58 shattered his boastful 9.69 WR at the Beijing Olympics. Bolt ran this one all the way through beating Gay by a sizable margin, Gay ran a 9.71.

I'm no expert on the 100M dash but I bet this converts to a fast 40 time, and I've got to think if anyone can go sub 4.2 its Bolt.

After the race Bolt said he thinks that he can go sub 9.50...that is a bananas statement, but he does keep getting faster...
