"Holy shit" out loud in the office
I'll be severely pissed off for having the memory of this race and the 100m messed up.
But for now - that was just nuts. I thought Johnson's record would last ages.
i'm so angry. it hasn't even hit me yet
in to a +0.9 headwind too, which is just fucking ridiculous.
i've done it in less
"Usain Bolt won the 200. Knocked two seconds off the world record"
"So he ran it in 17 seconds?"
Was it as impressive as the 100m?
it hasn't even really sunk in yet
he was visibly straining in the last 50m to keep the pace up right to the line
we had an office outing to the TV in reception just to watch it. Brilliant stuff.
I really, really hope he’s still around in four years time.
I don't even like sports! But i was sitting there thinking WHOA!!
It was also great when the whole stadium then sang happy birthday to him.
The guy is incredible.
I think he didnt realise he was in for the world record in the 100metres hence why he relaxed for the last 20m.
This time you could tell he went for it as he dipped as he crossed the line even though he was streaks ahead.
Im gonna keep watching that on bbc iplayer and i still wont get bored of seeing that.
