On Sunday, August 16, 2009 Jamaica’s Usain Bolt stunned the sporting world when he bested his own 100m world record, clocking a mind blowing time of 9.58 seconds at the the Berlin Olympiastadion.
A year earlier to the day, the world’s fastest man had clocked 9.69 seconds over the same distance at the 2008 Plympics in Beijing.
It was a mark many assumed would take quite some time to be lowered.
Bolt’s current world record of 9.58 doesn’t yet appear to be in jeopardy but discussions regarding if and whether it will ever be broken remain vibrant among many sports pundits.
However the world’s fastest man recently shared his thoughts regarding his record.
While speaking with the Times of London, Bolt stated:
“I think, just looking at the crop [of young sprinters] right now, I probably have 10, 15 years”.
Bolt recently won his fourth World Sportsman of the year award following his phenomenal performances at the Rio Olympics.
He is expected to hang up his spikes later this year.
