Bolt Really Wants to Run the 200m in Less than 19 seconds

Jamaica’s six time Olympic gold medal sprinter Usain Bolt was recently asked to rate himself during his stay in Rio.

He was very direct with his response.

“When I’m in great shape, I’ll tell you guys, I worry about nobody because I know that when I’m at my best — it’s definitely almost impossible to beat me.”

  

One of his biggest goals is to also break his current 200 metre world record by dipping under the 19 second barrier.

In 2009, he set the current record of 19.19 seconds and also set the 100 metre record of 9.58 in the same year.

“That’s one of my biggest goals,” Bolt said Friday in Rio, which will host South America’s first Olympics next year. “It’s actually to run under 19 seconds. I think this season it will be hard to do, but the key thing is trying to stay injury free so I can go into the Olympic season in the best shape that I can be.”
