The Amazing Bolt

by Dan Bilicki In: Uncategorized

How great is Usain Bolt? Quite simply he is the best sprinter ever and yesterday he was at it again. Just days after smashing his year-old record for the 100-metre sprint, he smashed his year-old record in the 200-metre dash. The weird part: He beat both World Records by .11 seconds.

Not to say that he was actually challenged when dominating the 100-metre event, but in the 200-metre event, there was nobody even close to him when he crossed the finish line. His 19.19 was simply outstanding.

Now, let’s not all go out and ruin the fun of an athlete like Bolt by wondering how he would do in the NFL, as we often do with the world’s fastest men. It’s one thing to run a straight line with incredible speed, it’s a completely different thing to run routes, catch balls and, especially, take hits.
