Re-Edited 11th Aug 2012– The 2008 & 2012 Olympic links have been substituted with links to YouTube videos direct. Some copyright issues with having them play in a separate window as linked previously. Bolt’s 100m 2012 final is not included. Apologies for any inconvenience.
The World has witnessed the greatest sprinter ever in the last week – and not only is his talent confined to the track – he has engaged a cult following like no other.

As a tribute to one of the two greatest track athletes in Olympic history – the other being Michael Johnson – their past and 2012 Olympic performances are presented below …

2008 100M Final:  Usain Bolt – No official sanctioned video available …

2008 200M Final:  Usain Bolt – YouTube Link here … (link available while it lasts.)

2012 100M Final:  Usain Bolt – YouTube Link here ...

2012 200M Final:  Usain Bolt – YouTube Link here …

The only other Athlete in track to come close in matching Bolt’s track performance is Michael Johnson who took the 200m and 400m double at Atlanta (1996) and Sydney (2000). His performances are below: [The quality of these last two videos are not HD.]

1996 200M and 400M Finals:  Michael Johnson

2000 200M Final:  Michael Johnson

2000 400M Final:  Michael Johnson

Johnson was King of his era as is Usain Bolt of his.  How they would have measured up in a 200m match race is a promoters dream.

Johnson still holds the world record for the 400m – Bolt holds the 100m and 200m records.  A history of these records is produced below – [Courtesy Wikipedia.  Click on images to enlarge (Ctr +) in a new window.]

100m Records:

200m Records:

400m Records:

Johnson’s 400m record has stood since 1999 and its longevity suggests that his era of performances holds a special place in history.

Take a bow Michael Johnson and Usain Bolt.  You are both athletic legends.

Another olympic moment bought to you by Snoop-Poop.
