The Fastest Man in the World wasn’t the fastest man in Jamaica.
That honour goes to Yohan Blake, who got out of the blocks fast and finished the 100-meter final in 9.75 seconds to upset world-record holder Usain Bolt by 0.11 seconds in the Jamaican Olympic trials.
A shocker? Well, that’s for the world to decide. One thing for sure, however, is that the calculus for the London Olympics has changed dramatically.
Blake is the reigning world champion but that victory, last year in South Korea, came with an asterisk because Bolt didn’t run that night after being disqualified for a false start. This was their first rematch, their first real race since then. Bolt was considered the favourite, not only because of his world record – 9.58 seconds – but because Blake, his training partner had never run below 9.84 in his life.

Well, now, he has.
The 9.75 seconds goes down as the best time this year and also breaks the four-year-old National Stadium record; both marks were 9.76 – both held by Bolt.
As much as the numbers, though, it was all that daylight between Blake and Bolt at the finish line that told this story. Blake, the man known as “The Beast,” let out a primal scream when he crossed. Bolt just sort of pulled up – no “To the World” pose or anything else to celebrate.
Asafa Powell will join them at the Olympics, after finishing in 9.88. In the women’s 100, defending Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won in a Jamaican record 10.70 seconds, with Veronica Campbell-Brown in second and Kerron Stewart in third.

Blake beats Bolt.. the fastest man in the world.. by 0.11.

Usain Bolt aims to get four golds in London 2012

Usain Bolt wants to compete in four separate events at the 2012 Olympics to match a record that’s older than he is!

Carl Lewis set the record for a male athlete to get four gold medals in track and field at the same Olympics.

That was in Los Angeles in the USA, way back in 1984 – two years before Bolt was born.

Bolt, from Jamaica, says he will run the 4x400m relay for the first time, as well as defending his Olympic titles in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m.
