Usain Bolt - Faster Than You Are

Usain Bolt, shown here well ahead of a field of elite sprinters who are, themselves, faster than all but a handful of human beings in the history of human beings, is fast. Over the weekend, he clipped another .11 seconds off his previous world record time in the 100-meter run, taking it down to 9.58 seconds -- breath that in for a moment: 100 meters in 9.58 seconds with only leg power, no engines or wings involved.

I know it sounds rude and presumptuous to say so, but Usain Bolt is faster than you are.

Yep, and he's going to get faster.

I'd like to see him break 9.5 but I think that might be a little too fast even for him.
