Thursday, September 1st at 10:10 pm EST (Friday, Sept. 2nd 11:10 am Korean time) Usain Bolt will be back in action in his bid to remain the world’s fastest man at 200 meters. If all goes well – as nothing is ever certain in sprinting – Usain will make it through both the qualifying and semi-final heats to secure a
place in the final on September 3rd. Having already posted the year’s fastest time of 19.86 seconds on
June 9th, Usain Bolt will be in an excellent position to vie for another world title, and despite last Sunday’s
unfortunate result, Bolt remains a strong favorite to win.

With the race fast approaching, what words of encouragement would you give Usain? What do you think
his final time will be? Might he even shock the world again and eclipse his own incredible record of 19.19
seconds? Tell us your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter or feel free to leave your comments below.
