Usain Bolt 100m 9.85s Video - Zagreb World Challenge 2011

>> September 14, 2011

Usain Bolt, the winner of 8 gold medals at the Olympics and World championships clocked a season best 9.85s at the IAAF World athletics challenge in Zagreb on 13.09.2011 (some lucky from my birthday !!). Bolt who false started in Daegu, which then enabled his teammate Yohan Blake to became the world champion, didn't get a great start and at the 50 meters mark he only second to Kim Collins  who blasted out of the block like a hungry bullet. But the giant with 1.96m frame used the advantage to kick all the fields' asses to cross the line two meters ahead.

Kim Collins, the 2003 World champion was second in a season best time of 10.01s. His performance however was way much much much better than Bolt, considering the fact that he achieved his fastest time (9.99s) in 2003 and at age of 35 now, he only short two hundredths of a second of the mark. For a record, Bolt registered a World record in 2009 in a time of 9.58s, where 0.27s faster than the Zagreb's performance, 9.85s - which is obviously still good for everyone but actually bad and ugly for Bolt.

Asafa Powell still the world lead in 9.78s, followed by Tyson Gay (9.79), Steve Mullings (9.80), Yohan Blake (9.83) and Mike Rodgers (9.84). Below is the video;
