Usain St Leo Bolt as christened by his parents, is a professional sprinter and an Olympic Games champion who holds world record in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4 x 100 meters relay race. The retired sprinter held his position as the Olympic Games champion for three years consecutively before his retirement from athletics.
The fastest and most historic race of all time is the Usain Bolt’s 150m race from the Great City Games in Manchester, nine years ago where the Jamaican broke world record with a smashing time record of 14.35 seconds.
Going through the measurement of time, either in miles or kilometer per hour from start to finish, this race has successfully beaten others like it with a very large margin, hence statistically considered as the fastest race in history.
Calculating the time used by Bolt, his time of 14.35 is equivalent to 23.38mph and this is still greater than the two records he set later the same year at the IAAF World Championship in Berlin in 2009.
The two records are the world 100m where he made a 23.35mph and the world 200m record at 23.31mph the same year.
You can follow the full details of that race on the ‘Athletic Weekly’ big feature in their May 17 issue that will feature interviews with people were there that day, including Bolt, the living legend himself and a statistical analysis by Mark Butler.
