That's pretty cool...did you talk to him at all?

I am actually surprised we don't see him with more endorsements...after Phelps won his medals, he was everywhere. Where is Bolt?

Re: Usain Bolt WR (non-Redskins related)

The dude is defying the natural evolution of human speed- to absolutely destroy the field in a race as short as the 100 or 200 is bonkers. Tyson Gay ran a 9.71 in the 100 final- 3rd fastest time ever... and Bolt made him look like he was standing still. The fact he's 6'5" is even crazier- the world's elite sprinters are usually around 5'11" to 6'1". Bolt averages three less strides in the 100 than most sprinters, so it's pretty amazing.

While questions of juicing are inevitable (I'd expect them to be with his sheer dominance), I'd be shocked if he was... I just think the dude's a freak of nature and we're not likely to see another sprinter like him in a long time. The fact he always pulls up in the last 10 meters leads me to believe he's just on another planet from anyone else (and the fact it makes it easier to earn another 100K every time he breaks his own record).

I just heard a Track reporter say Bolt could run the 40 in 3.82 seconds going by his recent runs. DAMN!!!

That's Madden 95 type speed there. I miss running the 40 by pushing the buttons rather than using the thumbsticks. Having a turbo controller was a big help.

I watched the coverage of his 200M world record last night, and it was said that he covered the final 40 meters in 2.9 seconds, meaning that his peak cruising speed is right around 30 MPH - THE MAN IS A FREAK OF NATURE!!! The records that he's setting may stand for 20+ years.

I don't think he could pull that off... if you watch his 100 races, he pulls away during the last 55-60 meters. The 40 relies heavily on the start and all sprinters don't reach top speed until after the first few seconds.

I don't know how the guy calculated it but he pretty much stands by it. But of course I agree about not reaching top speed right away.

No doubt... but I also think starting off blocks and running on a track gives a bit of an advantage over three point stance on grass too. Regardless, he's be pretty swift in the 40- I actually think Asafa Powell may be better in a straight burst race like the 40.

Re: Usain Bolt WR (non-Redskins related)

Speed kills but speed is worthless if you can't run routs, elude tacklers and catch the ball. You're just worthless as a decoy if you can't do any of these things. I'll Pass.
