100M World Record

Don't know if anybody caught this on CBS over the weekend, but it was pretty incredible. Usain Bolt, a 6'5" Jamaican sprinter, ran the 100M in a world record time of 9.72.

Good stuff though. Crazy thing is he's "mainly" a 200m sprinter.

I thought I read he was mainly a 400m guy and wasn't sure he'd do the 100 in the Olympics! If he works on his start and that first 10-20m look out

I bet you're right... and I bet people used to say that time was 10 seconds.
