    Bolt doesn't need to save a little. This guy is going to continue to smash records for years to come.

    And once again I point out the significance of the event. It's the World Track and Field Championships. The World Series, Super Bowl, Stanley Cup Final of all track events... next to the Olympics. THIS is where you shine and try to do your all time best. No holding up here my friend!

    The rest of the world outside the Americas really has little connection to the World Series, Super Bowl or Stanley Cup (except maybe by name), but Track and Field WC IS the third largest sport event in the world after the Olympics and the World Cup in football.

    All things sporty... keeping that in mind I would like to chat a little bit about my "sport"... its actually not a real sport though. But a good excercise nonetheless.

    I am now 36... and way back in 1988 I started with Kung Fu. "white eyebrow style". A nice style, relatively no-nonsense. I like(d) it. My teacher was a great man too. Sadly he passed away in 2001. So with no other likeable teacher available I stopped training. During my kung fu days they nicknamed me Hercules. Since then I have become fatter and less active, and now I am just known as the "big 'fat' guy" haha. Have been looking since for an alternative sport...

    Ok... fast forward to February 2008... ah, the internet... youtube. Watched some martial art clips, and discovered some weird looking clips about a Russian Martial Art. I have always been interested in Russian related stuff, so I checked it out in more detail. What I saw was something so unlike any traditional martial arts... like Karate, Taekwondo and such. Quite weird, often fake looking too. However having an open mind, and diggin' Bruce Lee's concept of 'no style'... I continued to look into this martial art.

    Its name: SYSTEMA or The System.

    A fighting System (for special army units) developed in the former Soviet Union. Systema is not a style, you don't need to memorize katas or specific ideal techniques over and over. Instead you will learn the concepts of biomechanics and you start to expiriment with it. Its like they teach you how to paint, but you can make your own painting. You don't have to paint exactly like your master. You don't have to wear a special uniform too, there are no belts either. Just a sturdy t-shirt/trousers will do. Anyway, I can't explain it all here... but for those who have an open mind, and would like to try an interesting martial art without having to learn katas and such... give it a try. (and the best thing is... try to find a Systema school/study group (study groups are often for free) in you area and train a few times. Don't judge it from some weird Youtube clips.

    In my experience, I learned a lot more after one or two lessons of Systema, than compared with all my kung fu lessons. Nothing against kungfu or all the other martial arts though. I love them all. But personally Systema fits as a glove for me. Its fun while being practical and non-limiting. Thank you for reading.

    Yeah, I must admit that I found your post somewhat ambigous. Were you coming down on "track and field" or were you lifting it up by comparing it to what is - in your part of the world - major sporting events?

    Major sporting events! The BIG GAME! I love track... I was a triple jumper, high jumper and long track runner in middle school. I have nothing but the utmost respect for those true athletes.

    A runner like Bolt seldom comes along. My opinion however is he'll not run the 100 meters in under 8 seconds.

    And he could very well be the man!!!

    8 seconds would be 10% or more faster. It would be the equivalent of 3:10 mile.

    I would never say never but that would be a seriously spectacular achievement. I imagine that someone will do it within my lifetime though.

    I wonder who is the greatest sportsman or woman in the world - the person who is furthest ahead of everyone else in his or her field. Perhaps it's Bolt.

    Mike Tyson had an air of invincibility from the mid 80's until 1990.

    In Snooker Ronnie O'Sullivan would be leagues beyond everyone else if his head wasn't so fucked up.

    I was only really thinking about now. Three recent candidates aren't really there any more. Tiger Woods has lost his air of invincibility, Federer dominated tennis for ages but now there's Nadal, Schumacher was light years in front in Formula One but has now gone.

    I have no doubt this guy will smash the one record after another, but still I think for that reason alone he held in just a little, to make it easier to smash it the next time around

    but in the end, only Bolt knows the truth, so what do I know?

    In present time... Tiger Woods, Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps.

    Of all time... Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Lance Armstrong, Jim Thorpe, etc.

    I'd forgotten about Phelps - good call.

    I've never even heard of Wayne Gretzky or Jim Thorpe, but will look them up now!

    He's a manic depressive. In his field ( snooker ) he is a true genius and I use that word with all the weight that implies, he really is something extemely special, he's also quite a controversial figure.

  6. Did O'Sullivan's condition ever influence his playing, like for example acting out to an umpire (referee) during a game or something like that?

    Sort of. That's where he becomes controversial, in the past he's given up and walked out half way through a match, been disrespectful to his opponents, hit an official and at times be damned odd in his behavior, he was also stripped of one of his titles after being tested possitive for marijuana.

    He's a pussycat though compared to the legendary Alex Higgins.
