the last time we saw someone win the 100 - 200 meter gold medals was carl lewis at the 1988 olympics. its been 20 years since we saw a breed of athlete like jamaica's Usain Bolt who holds both the olympic and world 100 meter records with 9.69 seconds. his name and achievements in sprinting have earned him the famed nick name Lighting Bolt. micheal johnson the american winner of the 200 and 400 meter runs is personally backing the sprinter and says he will win hands down. its amazing to see such a young talented sprinter not even in the peak of his game break world records......we can be sure of one thing, he's not only going to win the 200 meter but he's going to be winning races for a long time to come and might even beat his own personal best time and the current world record time! He is the first person to win jamaica a gold medal at the 2008 beijin olympics.
