Video of Yohan Blake 100m 9.82s, Kirani James 400m 44.36s NR - Zurich Diamond League 2011

>> September 09, 2011

As I mentioned before, Yohan Blake's 9.92s -1.4 was worth 9.82s in a normal wind condition (0.0).

The newly crowned world 100m champion has already proved it I'm correct to the world as he ran 9.82s (zero wind) to win the Diamond League meet in Zurich on 08.09.2011, destroying a strong field of likes of Asafa Powell (9.95), Walter Dix (10.04), Michael Frater (10.06), and Kim Collins (10.09).

Blake is now one of the fastest sprinters of all-time. His 9.82s time moved him to 7th fastest on the all-time rankings.

Only the great sprinters have run faster than him: Usain Bolt (9.58), Tyson Gay (9.69), Asafa Powell (9.72), Tim Montgomery (9.78), Nesta Carter (9.78), Ben Johnson (9.79), Maurice Greene (9.79), and Steve Mullings (9.82).

This also means that he is better than the likes Donavon Bailey (9.84), Bruny Surin (9.84), Leroy Burrell (9.85), and Carl Lewis (9.86) - just to name a few.

Asafa Powell, on the other hand has yet to meet his actual form due to an injury he suffered during the whole month of August. He got off a great start as usual, but Blake took the lead in the second half of the race.

Powell eased up "as usual" and still ended in 9.95s. The time shows that he is the most consistent sprinter (100m) of all-time in terms of 100m timings, with more than 60 times he clocked under 10 seconds from 2004 to 2011.
