My favorite was "remember to move by alternating between left and right feet as quickly as possible."

Some physicist just calculated that his time would have been 9.55 if he hadn't been showboating?

Insane.

Someone mentioned to me that Usain Bolt gets a lot of money everytime he breaks a WR. So I guess it makes sense that he should only break the world record a little bit each time to maximize the money?

Yeah, I heard that too.

But I really just think the guy was celebrating. He didn't even know he broke the WR until like halfway into victory lap... I mean 100m gold in the oly is pretty much a one time shot (maybe 2x if you're lucky).
