You must have heard this lightning fast. Usain Bolt is a good example of this. This Jamaican furling runner made it come true. If he used to run on the track, you would not have had time to blink. Because here you blink your eyes and there he is beyond the last line. Usain Bolt made several records on the track. Today is the 34th birthday of this runner. He was born today in 1986 in Jamaica.
The Jamaican sprinter has won 8 Olympic Gold Medal, 11 World Championship Gold, 6 IAAF World Athletes of the Year titles, 4 times Lauresus World Sportsman of the Year awards.
We call Bolt as the world’s finest all-time great runner up. He has a world record of 100 meters (9.58 seconds), 200 meters (19.19 seconds) and 4×100 meters relay (36.84 seconds).
Bolt is the only sprinter to have won the 100m and 200m Olympics three times in a row (200, 2012, 201). He is the only athlete to have won four world titles in the 200 meters.
The Caribbean island runner is also the most pro footballer. In fact, he played for Australia’s A-League Team Central Coast Mariners for three months.
Bolt became Gold medalist in 2002:
Bolt made a distinct identity by winning the gold medal in the 200 meters at the 2002 World Junior Championships. This made him the youngest gold medalist of the competition. He became the first junior runner in the 2004 CARIFTA Games. However, he run in the 20 seconds category with a time of 19.93 seconds. However, he broke Roy Martin’s world record in two tens of seconds. He became a professional in 2004, but did not play in most of the first 2 seasons. It’s because of injuries; but he finished the 2004 Summer with Olympic Medal.
In 2007, he defeated 200-meter Jamaican national record holder Don Querridge with a time of 19.75 seconds. In May 2008, Bolt set a world record of 9.722 seconds in 100-meter event. Both the 100 meters and 200 meters at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.
World records in many events:
The time in the 100 meters was 9.72 and thus he broke his own record with a time of 9.69. However, in the 200-meter event he broke Michael Johnson’s record of 19.32 seconds at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics with 19.30 seconds. A year after the Beijing Olympics in August 2009, the 2009 World Championships lowered their own world records of the 100m and 200m events, with times of 9.58 and 19.19 respectively. However, a year after the Beijing Olympics, the 2009 World Championships in the 100m and 200m events, he lowered his own world records with a time of 9.58 and 19.19 respectively. His record-breaking difference in 100 meters is the highest since the inception of digital time measurement.
Bolt’s personal time of 19.19 seconds in the 200 meters is the best world record. He marked this record at the 2009 World Athletics Championships in Berlin. However, he did this despite the wind coming from the front at a speed of -0.3 seconds.
