Usain Bolt is the fastest man in the planet. CNN calls him "the greatest athlete the world has ever seen."
In the most awesome sprint races ever run to date, Usain Bolt shattered his own world records in both the 100-meter and 200-meter dash. The 100 meters fell in 9:58 (previous Bolt world record, 9:69) on August 16, followed by the 200 meters in 19:19 (previous Bolt world record, 19:30) on August 20. Unless stopped, Bolt will most probably set and reset the 100m and 200m world records at will for the next few years, as if they were his private records.
These are the video clips from youtube of Bolt's fantastic runs.
