Sunday evening as my dad, mom and I watched Usain Bolt, Blake, Asafa Powell, Tyson Gay,etc qualify for the finals that were to be conducted at 2:20 IST, I told my dad I want Usain Bolt to win.
And win he bloody well did! In 9.63 seconds!!
There's just something about knowing that a man who has created world recordS and is under SO much pressure .. The others were under pressure too, yes, but I just simply really wanted Usain Bolt to win.
He qualified pretty effortlessly in the evening, even watching who was behind him once he was 30 meters off the mark.
And in the finals conducted 25 mins ago, HE FLEW!
If you missed it somehow, please go visit any link, watch the video where he ran 100 mts in 9.63 seconds, setting up a whole new record!
Yohan Blake of Jamaica finished second in 9.75 secs, and Justin Gatlin of the USA, third in 9.79 seconds. Congratulations!
Yohan Blake : "Usain is the fastest man in the world. I got a silver medal, what more can I ask for? I give credit to my coach."
