Who Faster?

Usain Bolt is the fastest man on earth. The laid-back Jamaican sprinter is a three-time Olympic gold medalist and World Record holder at 100m (9.58), 200m (19.19), and along with his teammates, 4x100m relay (37.10). Although he didn't become a global superstar until the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Bolt was always destined for greatness. He holds the World Youth (20.13 at age 16) and World Junior (19.93 at age 18) records for 200m. And now he's the only man to hold the 100m and 200m World and Olympic titles at the same time.
