What you don't get from that video is just how crappy the conditions were. It rained heavily all afternoon so the track was soaked and it was pretty cold for the time of year yet he still broke the world record while making the opposition look silly in the process.

I bet there are a quite a few up and coming young sprinters who saw this are thinking to themselves "he slipped coming out of the blocks, he's only 70% fit, he busted up his foot last month and he's STILL faster than me....... NFL here I come!"
