Bolt would have been in danger of nabbing a speeding ticket!

Berlin (Germany), Aug.18 (ANI): Jamaican Usain Bolt, who broke the world 100 meter record on Monday, is said to have run so fast that he was in danger of getting a speeding ticket.

Bolt set the world record at 9.58 seconds, a huge reduction from the old record of 9.69 he ran a year previously at the Beijing Olympics.

According to the Daily Express, no one has ever carved such a big chunk off the world's fastest time since electronic timing was introduced.

Maurice Greene taking Donovan Bailey's record from 9.84 to 9.79 10 years ago was thought a huge achievement - but it did not compare with this.

At his fastest Bolt clocked 30 mph.

Bolt begins again this morning in the 200m. He will be cool until the final,then let those long legs go in another explosion of pace.

His world record at the Olympics was 19.30.

Bolt wants to finish his career as a legend.

"The first few chapters are going well. It's getting there but two seasons can't do it," he said.

"I have to keep doing it year after year. I could go 9.4, but I think the world stops at 9.4. For me, 9.5 is definitely a big thing. I'm proud of myself because I'm the first man to have done that," he added. (ANI)
