Default Usain Bolt Sets Another WR: 200m in 19.19

Previous WR 19.30. Here's a low quality video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItRvEjMXSMg

Ridiculous. Without anyone to even push him! Give him a Tyson Gay running 2m back and see how much faster the kid goes.

Pretty good HQ with english:

100m splits were 9.92 and 9.27...into a -0.3 m/s headwind. Good effing gravy!

Check the bottom of this article for estimated 200m potential based on his best 100m: http://speedendurance.com/2009/08/21...eed-endurance/

18.96!!!! We'll be seeing a sub-19.10 within the next 12 months. There's talk of him going for the 400m record next year, but I think his PR is 45.xx, so he'll have some training to do to get his speed-endurance up. 42.8-9 isn't out of the question though.

Yeah, I've heard a good estimate of 200m -> 400m is (200m time * 2 + 3.5s) which would come out to somewhere around 42.5s if he can break 19s in 200m.

Regardless, yeah he needs to do speed endurance, but running +1s in 200m then 2.5 extra seconds to finish the last 200m with work is probably gonna be cake for him.
