They say he has reached “immortal” status, “a lightning strike in yellow and black.”. few days ago, he won his 3rd gold medal with a winning time of 9.81, and he was actually slowing down in his victory strides. “Usain Bolt is a one-man theatre show expressing not just athletic supremacy but an elemental quality which draws us in. Like a beautiful face, we have no choice but to look, to stare, to bow, to accept that this creature before us is all that we are not nor ever could be.”
On Sunday Usain Bolt became the first man to win the 100-meter dash in three consecutive Olympics, and has officially earned the nickname ‘living legend’. It was brilliant,” he said. “I didn’t go so fast but I’m so happy I won. I told you guys I was going to do it.
We have written on Bolt before, and if readers recall, he is a different animal altogether when it comes to your typical sprinters. Unlike the hardened, scowling men who dominated this sport for decades, Bolt keeps things light, writes one news source. He’s spoken in the past about a penchant for partying, his less-than-stellar work ethic, his love of fast food. Years ago, he set three world records 100, 200 and 4 100 relay on a steady diet of chicken nuggets. In his own words: It was chicken with vegetables, so it was healthy. Don’t judge me.
Yes, to say the least, as a #9 FCAR, Usain is a natural talent. As Niednagel wrote many a year ago, As super high-energy, fine and gross motor coordinated, right-brained people, they possess optimal body qualities for sprinters. To watch Bolt win with such ease, stopping to look at his opponents behind him, is truly amazing to watch.
The two biggest names at the Rio 2016 Olympics have been, besides Michael Phelps (#13 FCIR), both #9s … Simone Biles and Usain Bolt. Quite amazing, considering how far outnumbered they are by #13 FCIRs. When truly dedicated to both gymnastics and running in particular (and with proper training), they can certainly be among the best, if not the best, in the world.
Stay tuned, folks! We have another #9 FCAR champion to tell you about!
