Can Usain Bolt Run Any Faster?

In a recent post we asked the question: How fast can Usain Bolt Run? In this post we introduced you to a study that suggested he could have run the 100 meters at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in less than 9.6 seconds.

At the 2009 IAAF World Athletics Championships, today he proved just that, shattering his own World Record by running the race in 9.58 seconds. Even then he still had time to take a look out of the corner of his eye at Tyson Gay, his closest competitor, who ran an impressive 9.71 seconds

If you missed this amazing race, take a look at the video below.

Unbelievable! The only question left is how much faster can he go? Bolt himself believes that he can run the 100 in 9.4 seconds. To us this seems a bit out of reach, although we believe he will go faster than 9.58.

We would love to hear what you think.

He will hit 9.45 in 100
and 18.99 in 200
and if he's serious and is allowed to train for it, he could break 41 in the 400
