A New World Record

Usain Bolt deated American Tyson Gay to set a new world record in the 100m last night. Bolt's time of 9.72 surpassed fellow Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell's old mark of 9.74, set on Sept. 9, 2007. Asafa Powell did not compete because he is recovering from a chest injury. Bolt defeated American record holder Tyson Gay, who finished 2nd with a time of 9.85. Gay's personal best is 9.76 with 2.2w. This sets up the potential for some serious competition amongst Bolt, Gay, and Powell heading into Beijing. The envelope is being pushed... hard! It's going to be fun to watch...
