Usain Bolts to World record

Usain Bolt won the Beijing Olympics 100 meters gold medal in a world-record 9.69 seconds, gesturing to the crowd and slapping his chest before crossing the line.

Bolt, a 200-meter specialist nicknamed ``Lightning,'' finished 0.2 second ahead of Trinidad's Richard Thompson at the Bird's Nest stadium. Walter Dix of the U.S. took bronze in 9.91. Fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell was fifth, while Tyson Gay of the U.S. failed to qualify for the final of track's premier event.

The way he completed the run was cool but I think he got carried away a bit too far. He could have easily got 9.50 if he kept up the rhythm. Sometimes when you are succeeding you get carried off?
