ya, this was a week or so ago, right?

he won his section, but weir and blake had faster times


#3

If they aren’t in the same race then he wasn’t beaten. Who knows how much he had in the tank.

Misleading title is misleading…


#5

Misleading post is spam to advertise his website.

StriveTrips made similar attempts not too long ago. I don’t understand the logic behind advertising yourself in this manner. With these posts he or she lost a lot of credibility from potential traffic.

We want website owners and bloggers to link to their stuff but be sure it’s thoughtful and relevant. I think leaving a link to your website in your signature is the classiest way to go about it.

Bolt stretches legs with another one-lap race

<HR class=dotted>24 February 2013, 07:33
Jamaican sprint hero Usain Bolt continued his low-key early-season programme on Saturday, running in the heats of the 4x400m relay at the Gibson Relays athletics meeting.
Bolt clocked a 45.7sec split running the third leg for the Racers Lions squad, which won their heat in 3:06.9 ahead of a Dominican Republic team that was timed in 3:08.6.
Bolt spectacularly defended his three gold medals – in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m – in the London Olympics last summer.
The runner’s decision to skip Saturday’s final was the plan all along, his coach Glen Mills said, telling journalists he was “only down to run the heats”.
In the final, double Olympic sprint silver medallist Yohan Blake collected the baton for Racers Lions some 10 metres behind and couldn’t close the gap.
A Racers Track Club squad won in 3:03.74 while the Lions finished in 3:04.00.
“I would have loved to get the baton a little bit earlier,” Blake said. “But in the end it was good, especially since I don’t run the 400m a lot.”

Bolt to race over 150m on Brazil beach

<HR class=dotted>22 February 2013, 00:04
Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt will compete in a 150 metres race on Brazil’s Copacabana Beach next month against three other sprinters in what the Jamaican called a “street meet” type showdown.
Organisers are to build a track on the famous sands for the March 31 race although they did not say whether it would have a bend.
The 150 metres race is an unusual distance that rarely features in top competitions. Bolt set a world best for the event in Manchester in 2009.
A six-time Olympic gold medallist, Bolt, 26, holds the 100 metres world record of 9.58 seconds and the 200m record of 19.19, and was part of the Jamaica team that set the 4x100 record of 36.84.
The race in Rio is only the second international event Bolt has confirmed for 2013. He recently announced he will compete in the 200m at Oslo’s Bislett Games Diamond League meeting on June 13. He ran a 400m recently in Jamaica.
Rio de Janeiro will host the next Olympic Games in 2016 and Bolt has said he wishes to compete here. He visited the city last October on a promotional tour.

He has the WB in 150m too, actually.

ya it said that in WiTs post in the middle.

it would be kind of funny if he had both the 100m and 200m WRs but not the 150m WB.

his 150m time en-route to his 19.19 has got to be faster than whatever he ran on a rainy day in manchester in '09
