    Magnificent.

    Shame about Gatlin medalling tho.

    Kudos to Colin Jackson tho; called 9.64 before the race. Uncanny.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    The one that Michael Johnson did, don't know if you've ever seen it, is really interesting, goes into the Bio-mechanics of how he runs and why he's so fast.

    Inverdale just said Archie Hahn retained the 100m title in 1908. Nup, Reggie Walker of SA won it.

    Incredible. How does he move so fast? Beat everyone else comfortably, and they're hardly slouches.

    Incredible to think that going into the 1992 Olympics, Carl Lewis held the WR at 9.84.

    The top 4 in this race all ran quite comfortably under that. Incredible.

    His first heat was ridiculous, he looked like he was just out for a casual afternoon jog and he still ran it in 10 seconds.

    9.86 actually which only strengthens your point
