Lightning Bolt Struck Twice

This is more like a true champion. Usain Bolt ran like hell throughout the 200 metres at the Bird Nest Stadium in Beijing, China to win his second Olympic gold medal with a world record time of 19.30 seconds. And he did it by running against a headwind of 0.9 m/s.

As I said in my earlier posting, I was disappointed that he did not run the full 100 metres last week and started celebrating 10 metres before the finishing line. Tonight, he did not do that. And it was very thrilling to watch the world’s fastest man in action.

Usain Bolt became the first man ever to win the 100 metres and 200 metres Olympic sprint gold medals at world record times.

At the local scene, congratulations to Datuk Lee Chong Wei, our Badminton Olympic silver medalist.
