Bolt streaks to world-leading 9.82s
July 9, 2010Posted by on
Three-time Olympic Gold medallist Usain Bolt storms to a world-leading 100m time of 9.82s at the Lausanne Athletissima Diamond League on Thursday, tying compatriot Asafa Powell’s mark. The Lightning Bolt overcame a 6-week layover from a troublesome achilles tendon to outclass the field. The closest sprinters were fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake at 9.96s and Netherlands Antilles’ Churandy Martina at 10.16s.
Bolt, following his doctors’ advice, opted out of the 200m dash in Lausanne to err on the safe side, in light of his recent injury.
It’s refreshing to see the exuberant Bolt back on track. Watch out for the upcoming Bolt-Powell race on 16 July in Paris. It’s gonna be epic!
