The Lightning Bolt

If you have followed men's 100 meters sprint for past some time, you might have noticed the grind it puts the participants through, winner or losers alike.

Every oz of their energy seem to drip out of their anatomy and by the time they cross the finish line, you can see on each face what Indian Classical Music term as "mudra dosh", disfigurement of facial expression while performing a tough "raga". And all in a span of just 100 meters :O

And if you were lucky enough to witness what can be easily termed as the prologue of an epic in Bird's Nest on the night of 16th August, you'd not be able to help but wonder how ridiculously easy this new emperor of speed made it look like to win the most prolific of track'n'field events, and boy, did he do that in style.

Surely, 9.50 is not too far.
