Happy New Year from Genuine Pace!
Usain Bolt has a big year ahead as he prepares for the 2016 Olympics (London only seems like yesterday). Bolt said, “World records are always there to be broken. I am sure the times over 100 and 200 meters can still be improved.” He set new world records in the 2009 Berlin world championships in the men’s 100 meter dash, of 9.58 seconds and in the men’s 200 meter dash, of 19.19 seconds. In particular, Bolt stressed his desire to run a 200-meter event in less than 19 seconds.
Bolt, who once used displayed interest in the long jump, said he has decided not to compete in the long jump upon discussing with his coach, due to higher risk of injury.
Do you think there is more pace to come, or has he passed his prime?
When will we ever see his records broken?
