Insane USAIN!!!

I have never seen someone DESTROY competition in any  100m and 200m run… ever.

9.69 seconds for the 100m!!! And he slowed down in the last 20 m to THUMP his chest in celebration as he had a ridiculous lead… who knows what his time would have been if he had run that section hard? 9. 5? 9.4?

And then lightening struck twice: 200m in 19.30 seconds! Just look at the lead he had in the below pic.

Its just unbelievable! The world has almost forgotten poor Phelps after this performance.

Insane Usain

Insane Usain

Usain Bolt of Jamaica is 6 ft 5 tall, making him the tallest Olympic Gold sprinter in history… He is almost a freak of nature as guys this tall shouldn’t “bolt” out of the blocks as fast as he does…and take strides as fast as he does…

Michael Johnson says Usain can destroy even the 400m record…and called him “Superman 2”

Even CARL LEWIS with all the dope couldn’t break 100m and 200m world records in his Olympic Gold run.

Ben Johnson with all the steroids could manage just 9.79.

But INSANE USAIN just blew everyone apart.

Hope he wins 5 Golds in next Olympics: 100m, 200m, 100m relay, 400m relay and 400m.

Hell… maybe he should try the long jump too..with his speed, he can cross 9 metres easily in a single leap. After all he is Superman too (pun intended).

Abhinav Bindra wins India’s FIRST INDIVIDUAL OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL IN HISTORY

Today was a watershed day in the history of Indian sport as Abhinav Bindra won India’s first ever individual Olympic gold medal with a thrilling come-from-behind victory in the Men’s 10 metres Air Rifle event. This is India’s first Olympic Gold Medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and hopefully will inspire Indians to take up individual sports big time. For some strange reason, the only non-team sport taken up by Indians seriously on a world level are Chess, Billiards and Snooker. We have won world championships regularly there. Push them a bit further and they may play Tennis or Badminton…but thats it. There are dozens of sports like shooting (we have 2 olympic medals now, Gold & Silver in Athens 2004), squash, swimming, track &field, gymnastics…where Indians can surely excel. Maybe today’s win might inspire more youngsters to take up these individual sports instead of cricket & hockey (usual suspects).
