It was fantastic. Bolt will  go faster still this year.

I agree

And let's not forget about the 4 x 100m relay!! With Bolt in action yet again!!

This guy is a giant . He is brilliant .

Bolt has qualified for the 200m quarter finals, I guess that's not really surprising though.

Yes.Gay has withdrawn from the 200 meters

It looked like he walk limping a little after the 100m final.  

I feel for Gay, broke the American record, second fastest man, third fastest time in the history of 100m sprints, and no one thinks about him.  It's all about Bolt.

Not 100% accurate. If you look on letsrun.com you will find a lot of reference to Gay. Sadly, not really for his running but for his character and the way he handles himself.

Bolt will only go faster if he has someone chasing him. If Gay was not on his ass the whole time, Bolt would not have broken his record. This was the first time I really saw him crack it right till the end.
AndrewS

With Bolts speed , everyone looks like they are walking in comparison.

Impressive running by Semenya. She looks in fine form.  At last , a South African to cheer for in the ladies . been a while.

I hear what you are saying, but I think running is all about racing the clock and not your competitor.  Bolt knows he's much faster than anyone else he comes up against, he's chasing that sub 9:50, and he'll probably get it one day too!  It'll be the same feat as Roger Bannister breaking the 4 minute mile. I CAN'T WAIT!!

Was in the bath but my wife turned the volume up and she kept on screaming... 'he's so far ahead, he's so far ahead! of my goodness, he's so far ahead!', so i kinda knew what was going on!  LOL!

He was. His reaction time was astounding. He was quickest out of the blocks. It is truly remarkable if you can pass the guy in lane 6 within 10 steps already - a sub 20s 200m runner is no slouch at the beginning, yet Bolt made them look like moegoes.

I still maintain that we will probably not see him at his very very utmost best. For that extra .05 s you need to have someone breathing in your neck.

You are right.If someone like Gay was running,Bolt would have went even faster still

He did do 400m when he was younger. Thankfully someone with brains told him he should first focus on getting as fast as possible and then use that speed over 400m later in his career when the top speed drops.

Sounds like good avice to all runners.

I saw the 200m final and it was awesome. I think he can still do better as he slowed a little in the final metres of the race.

To run 2 world records to 2 races - that is an awesome achievement

Amazing run by Bolt, he is just a awesome sprinter. If he keeps this up he will clock a WR at almost every big event.

Great run by Mulaudzi in the 800 meter last night.

I watched Mulaudzi run his semi final and he looked well beaten in that field, I was very shocked to see him win the final, hats off to him!!  q14

He finally got all his ducks in a row and ran a great race q3
