Can't stop the Usain-ity

Usain Bolt has taken Beijing by storm at the 2008 Olympics. - First, he blew away the field in the 100m on Aug. 16, lowering his own world record to 9.69 seconds. - Then he broke Michael Johnson's 12-year-old record in the process. - Finally, Bolt ran the third leg of Jamaica's 4x100m relay, handing off to Asafa Powell, who brought it home for an easy gold.

- Bolt already owned the world record in the 100m coming into Beijing, despite little experience at that distance. - On May 31, Bolt ran his way into history when he shattered the world record, running 9.72 seconds to win the event at the Reebok Grand Prix in New York. - Making the record even more remarkable is the fact that it came in only his fourth race at the distance in major international competition.

- In the final 20 metres of the race on 16 August, Bolt extended his arms and thumped his chest in celebration, slowing himself a little.-A team of physicists have calculated an answeron how quickly he would have run.- The Jamaican gold medallist could have slashed his time from 9.69 seconds to 9.55 seconds.
