Never before in the history of athletics has one man, been so formidable in sprinting; that is Jamaican sprinting superstar, Usain Bolt. He is such a phenomenon, that the entire world, not only in sports, is preoccupied with the question; Can Anyone Beat Bolt?
metres prospects and usurpers has been released. The video shows highlights from the track careers of two top Jamaican sprinters, two United States runners and the fastest white man ever: Asafa Powell, Yohan Blake, Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay and Christophe Lemaitre.
Asafa Powell as long since broken the 10.00s mark, and is the only man do so, more than others. Yohan Blake is Usain Bolt’s training partner and beat Bolt at the Jamaica National Trials 2012; in both the 100m and 200m. Justin Gatlin the US national champion at the 100 metres in 2012, is coming from a four year ban for using illegal drug substances to enhance his sprinting. Tyson Gay is coming back from a one year leave from the sport, because of an injury. Meanwhile, Christophe Lemaitre is the European Champion in 100m and the fastest white man ever, over that distance in history. He is the underdog, who has already achieved the inconceivable and has nothing to lose.
The Can anyone beat Bolt one hour documentary, provides good analysis and information about all the sprinters who could take the 100m gold medal, if Usain Bolt is not running at his best.
