Bolt: I can go faster
- Updated: April 28, 2009
Fasten your seatbolts… the world’s fastest man says he can still go faster.
Jamaican Usain Bolt’s electrifying 100 metres world record of 9.69seconds is under threat from the triple Olympic champion he said on Sunday.
‘I think I could definitely go faster – 9.5,’ said 22-year-old Bolt in an interview.
“I think I could go 9.4, but I think the world stops at 9.4.”
Bolt’s plans for this year are to take gold in the 100 metre, 200m and 4x100m relay at the world track championships in Berlin later this year.. These are the same titles he claimed at the Beijing Olympics last year.
But that’s not all. ‘I want to be a legend in sports,” he said at an earlier news conference. ‘I want to just keep the level of competition high … so when I face the media every year, they will say Usain was the only guy to, ever, every season be on top — that’s my aim’
‘The only thing I have fear of is getting injured. I don’t fear people’
