The Jamaican superstar shattered his own 100m world record to win the gold medal at the World Championships with a scarcely believable time of 9.58 seconds. Bolt shaved a staggering 0.11 seconds off the 9.69 mark he set while winning gold in Beijing. The margin of victory was not as comfortable as some of his other wins, but the time to complete the world record sprint will certainly take some effort in the years to come.

He won individual Olympic titles in the 100m and 200m at world-record paces and that turned into a worldwide marvel. The current 100m and 200m world records were set a year after the World Championships in Berlin. The 100m record remains at 9.58s with the 200m at 19.19s.

The top choice for the 100m title at Tokyo 2020 seems to be USA Athlete Trayvon Bromell. He set a world driving season of 9.77s on June 5. During this moment Bolt spoke out that “He’s really stepped up and show that he’s ready and he’s is fit.”

“As long as he stays good, he should be on top.” The 100m is a notoriously brutal race with small edges denoting the distinction. “Mentally, it’s tough on you and making one mistake in the 100m finals. It can be your downfall. So, let’s see what happens.”

So, let’s see how that goes.” The first round of the 4x400m Mixed Relay will be on the main day of the Athletics Competition at Tokyo 2020 on Friday, July 30.
