The 2008 Olympic men’s 100m appears to be one of the most highly anticipated Olympic races since Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis lined up back in September of 1988 in Seoul, Korea. But unlike the duel between Big Ben and King Carl, there are three contenders making a claim for the title of Olympic 100m Champion and Fastest Man in the World: Former world record holder Asafa Powell, current record holder and fellow Jamaican, Usain Bolt, and the 2007 World Champion and American record holder, Tyson Gay.
However, many questions still remain as the showdown gets closer:
- Can Asafa Powell put it together at the big show?
- Will Usain Bolt be able to demonstrate his World Record form after 3 rounds of the 100m?
- Will Tyson Gay’s hamstring be strong enough to last the rounds and compete with the big boys?
- Are there any other contenders that we should keep an eye out for?
- Will a Canadian sprinter be a factor?
- Will drug testing be a factor in determining the ultimate winner?
