Jamaica’s retired sprint phenom – Usain Bolt holds world records in the 100 and 200m events.

Bolt smashed the 100m world record with a time of 9.58 seconds in the final of the 2009 World Athletics Championships.

And at that same championships he set a new record over 200m with a time of 19.19.

Not a single athlete has since threatened either of those records and many fans of the sport continue to speculate if and when they will be broken.

Bolt recently shared his predictions on how long the records will stand.  While speaking at a promotional event in Japan on Tuesday, Bolt reportedly stated:

“I think our era with Yohan Blake, Justin Gatlin and Asafa Powell and all these guys was the best era of athletes. If it was going to be broken, it would have been broken in this era, so I think I have at least 15 to 20 more years.”

Regarding a possible return to the sport, Bolt also stated:

“I have nothing to prove, that’s the main reason I left track and field. After you do everything you want there is no reason to stick around.”
