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

>> September 09, 2011

As I said before, Yohan Blake's 9.92s -1.4 was worth 9.82s in a normal wind condition (0.0). The new crowned world champion already prove it I'm correct to the world as he ran 9.82s (no wind) to win the Diamond League meet in Zurich on 08.09.2011, beaten a strong fields likes Asafa Powell (9.95), Walter Dix (10.04), Michael Frater (10.06), and Kim Collins (10.09).

Blake is deserved to be one of the fastest sprinter of all-time. His 9.82s performance moved him to 7th fastest in all-time rankings. Only the great sprinters have run faster- 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). It's means he is now 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, in the other hand has yet to meet his actual pace 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 at second half of the race, Powell eased up "as usual" and still finished in 9.95s. The time just show that he is the most consistent sprinter (100m) of all-time, with over 60 performances under 10 seconds within 2004 to 2011.
