Into a headwind … 19.30

In his 8th race of the Beijing Olympic Games … the new King of Athletics … just ran, quite possibly, what will be remembered for the ages as the single GREATEST RACE OF ALL-TIME.

On the date of his 22nd birthday, King Usain [Lightning] Bolt establishes a new World Record in the one event which previously had been thought to be ‘untouchable’ for a long, long time … the 200 m mark of Legendary American Sprinter, Michael Johnson [i.e. 19.32 … from the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996] …

by, at last, running through the Finish Line … and,

INTO A 0.9 HEADWIND

The man’s country of birth is irrelevant.
The language of the video is irrelevant.

The only thing that’s RELEVANT … is 19.30.

Simply … The Best … this corner has EVER SEEN.

Kudos to Mr. Bolt!
