For millennia, competition between humans for food, money, and women has come down to who is faster than whom. Track and Field sprints boil this history in ten & twenty second intervals as the most athletic people in the world push the limits of the human body to within a blink of an eye. It’s the oldest and purest competition out there.
So when Usain Bolts struts onto the turf and makes these super-athletes look like third graders, he’s doing more than shattering records. He’s rewriting the rules of physics, the human body and what is possible. And the fact that he can seemingly do such things with a lackadaisical cool and confidence in his own success only magnifies the truth:
He’s a freak. And we should love him for it.
