Lightning Bolt Strikes Twice

Last night was amazing watching Jamaican Usain Bolt power through to another world record at 19:30 in the men's 200m.

Michael Johnson had set the record at 19.32 in Atlanta.

Bolt crushed the competition even with a headwind and now is with the likes of Carl Lewis in winning two golds in sprints.

His win casts a shadow over the other showdown that should have taken place, the semi final heats between Liu Xiang and Dayron Robles of Cuba.

The Chinese are still sympathizing with him and Nike already came out with ads supporting him. Was it planned ahead of time?

yes bolt is amazing. but the side show after his win is not. this behavior is condemned by the ioc. it is vulger and unfrofessional. too americanized. may be he thought he was a football player. or was he really wanting to be one?
