Usain Bolt in Lausanne
How fast will Usain Bolt run?
Last year in Lausanne where he equaled the meeting record last year clocking 19.63, but that was post-Beijing 2008. And he even eased up from the finish line.
Put Bolt on a fast track, some decent weather, favorable wind, and red-hot sub-20 second Shawn Crawford and anything is possible. Especially if he runs through the line to test his current training preparations.
“I definitely will be running to the line this year because it’s my first serious race of the season,” said Bolt, who last September in Lausanne coasted to victory in the 200 in 19.63sec, the fourth-fastest time in history. “I’ll be going all out because I need to know where I’m at and what I need to do.”
UPDATE: Usain Bolt runs 19.59 into a -0.9m/s headwind and torrential rain with Lashawn Merrit the closest rival in 20.41 – almost one full second behind! A healthy Tyson Gay will make things very interesting in Berlin. Plus, let’s hope for ideal weather conditions!
