1.) Usain Bolt – Athletics – Jamaica
100 mt sprint is probably the most cruel sport. You train for 4 years to compete for just 10 seconds. There are myriad of things that might go wrong in those 10 seconds and still you train hard, you give up your life so that you can win the gold. And then, you have Usain Bolt competing with you on the track.
He is the fastest man on planet earth. He is undefeated in all major world championships since 2008. He world record of 9.58 seconds, which he set in Berlin in 2009 is still not broken. The thing to be in awe is that he probably reduced his speed by some fraction or relaxes a bit when he a few mts away from the finish line and is still able to win the race way ahead of all his competitors. This is frightening for others and for sport to have such domination, but it is fantastic to see a man running like a flash in front of thousands.
In-spite of everything, we all will lineup in front of our television sets, some of us who are lucky enough will see him live in the stadium, but it is for sure that “triple-triple” may well probably happen and he will have a clean sweep this time as well like the last two editions.
Come second week, we can see the real life Flash on the TV sets, behold the bolt.
