article imageOp-Ed: Bolt dominates World Championships in Moscow

By Eliot Elwar     Aug 18, 2013 in Sports
The legendary Usain Lightning Bolt dominates another World Championship. Bolt won the 100-meter dash in 9.77 seconds, the 200-meter dash in 19.66 seconds, and the 400-meter relays in 37.36 seconds. Bolt will remain undefeated for the next few years.
Despite his world-renowned prowess in the 100-meter dash and 400-meter relays, the 200 meter is Bolt's favorite race and he became the first sprinter to win three world championships in this demanding event. Many sprinting fans still consider his unbelievable 19.19 seconds at the 2009 world championships in Germany his finest moment, according to S.B. nation and Yahoo sports news.
Usain Bolt sprinted past Carl Lewis into the world track championship record book when he completed a triple gold-medal performance on 18 August 2013 in Moscow as he anchored Jamaica to victory in the 400-meter relay, according to L.A. Times.
Usain Bolt is undoubtedly the biggest name in the world of sprinting, but unless someone emerges who is able to realistically challenge his supremacy, then the majestic Jamaican will remain undefeated. Bolt does not run to set world records, but only to win championships; therefore, he needs competitors like Tyson Gay and Yohan Blake to challenge him for superfast times. The World Championship would have been more interesting had Tyson Gay or Yohan Blake participated because Usain Bolt appeared like a man running among boys. While Bolt’s performance this year was below his past high standards, he still dominated his sport in all events. Many within the scientific community believe that his 6 feet 5 inch frame (195 cm) gives him an unfair advantage over his opponents. When will the US and other countries begin imitating Jamaica by recruiting taller sprinters? Too many tall athletes are playing basketball when they could train to become sprinters and establish their dominance in track and field. Unless Bolt gets seriously injured, then neither the US nor any other country will defeat Jamaica until Bolt becomes too old to run.
