Can he do it?

Faster-Than-Lightning-Usain-Bolt-AUTOBIOGRAPHY-bookThe fastest man on the planet, Usain Bolt of Jamaica, wants to keep running and run the 200 metres in under 19 seconds and possibly as early as 2014.

Bolt, writing in his autobiography “Faster Than Lightning”, which went on bookshelves this month, said that achieving that landmark would mean having a ‘perfect’ season, similar to his exploits in 2008.

The Jamaican speedster believes achieving that feat would mean more than winning medals at the next Olympic Games.

“Supposing I don’t make any quicker times in the 100, I would love to be able to run 18-something seconds in the 200, even if it was an 18.99 race. Forget making the next Olympics and the medals, breaking that time would be an ever bigger success. I’d love to crack it, knowing that people were sitting in their homes and losing their minds at my achievement,” he wrote in his 291-page book.
