Once every generation, a star rises who sets the bar too high for the following generation to follow. They become permanent fixtures in the history and legend of the game they represent. Here at SportsRush, we will look at 6 of the best such unbreakable records in all of sports history in no particular order.
#6) Usain Bolt (Athletics)- 100 meters in 9.58 seconds
Usain St Leo Bolt is widely considered the greatest sprinter in the world. Bolt picked up several medals during his career and bagged several records for himself. Bolt is the first athlete to win four World Championship titles in the 200 m and is the joint-most successful in the 100 m with three titles.
He ran 100 meters in 9.69 seconds in Beijing, China back in 2008. Bolt would go on to break his own record a year later in Berlin, Germany when he ran 100 meters in 9.58 seconds! The biggest improvement since the start of electronic timing.
In the ten years since, no one has come close to even equaling it, let alone breaking the record. It appears that the legendary Lightning Bolt will have this record to his name for quite a long long time.
