Over the last month we’ve been overly spoon-fed what the Doctor’s involvement was to do with Michael Jackson’s departure. This ultimately beams the magnitude of how the West has depended on drugs. Drug taking; whether prescribed or otherwise, is available for the rich and famous, and most definitely to the super-human whose sport makes it their livelihood to give their very best while on the world stage. This last week I’ve been stunned at witnessing the fastest man in history Usain Bolt’s 100 metre performance at the World Championships. His time of 9.58 secs without the show-boating and banging on the chest before reaching the line, proves that he is untouchable when it comes to sheer power, and pure supremacy at that show stopper 100 metre dash; which commentators all agree as being the most exciting part of watching athletics. It may only take 10 seconds but in this case it is an amazing thing to be as quick as you can humanly be; so considering Bolt’s remarkable feats, I’m pre-empting that an investigation will be made on Bolt’s history making; especially as he was a competent 200 metre runner who came second in the World Championships in 2007; the meteoric rise has been vast and I fear his new found super-human stardom may be short-lived. It is part of human nature to review the means in which he performed by and to what level he has induced his body to, to come-up with considering what he has achieved. – I’m not saying he is taking any illegal substances but what I am siding with is that in reality all remarkableness is under scrutiny, from the initial media euphoria to the damning slander that has marred so many sportsmen careers.Usain is the new boy on the block; media storms are rising in the East. I’ve watched Usain’s World Record sprints with absolute awe. - He is the ultimate being that looks completely untouchable at present. I’m one of the 1,950,000 hits on YouTube, well, actually its more like 10 to put it into perspective. The stride pattern changes when he reaches 45 metres; it is smoother and it is as if the first 20 metres is labouring almost, but thereafter the Ferrari booster then kicks in. By the time 80 metres advance there is a slight relax-ness that suggests this Jamaican has more in the tank. I’m not surprised there has been a huge rush to acclaim Usain Bolt as the most astonishing sportsman who has ever set foot on this earth – greater than Tiger Woods and Roger Federer; commentators and sports writers are claiming.
Is it a bird, a plane… No it’s Usain!Let us hold back the plaudits for a few seconds here. Greatness has occurred and I’m one of Bolt’s biggest admirers; I can even stomach his daft pointed arrow trade-mark stance; which he seems to do at every time a TV camera is within 20 yards, I’m not sure that is an OCD condition that can be brought on by excessive caffeine addiction or not.
