He Looked Bored

Last night, as I have for the past 12 nights, I was catching up on watching the Olympics on TV.  I enjoyed watching both the swimming and women’s gymnastics events, but for the past 6 days or so, I have been glued to the track events.  It just amazes me the things the track athletes accomplish.

Usain Bolt ran in the 200m semi-final last night, and won his heat in 20.18 seconds.  Fast, but not his best by any means.  He was fast out of the blocks, and by the time he made the turn onto the straightaway, he was in cruise control.  Not only was he in cruise control, he looked downright bored.

I cannot even imagine what it is like to be that gifted of a runner.

If Bolt wins the 200m final, he will be the first person to win both the 100 and 200 in consecutive Olympics.  Amazing.
