Last week saw the spectacular conclusion of the London 2012 Olympics with lung-busting performances from the likes of Usain Bolt, who became the first Olympian to retain the sprint double, winning gold in both the 100m and 200m. The lightening-quick Bolt has no plans to keep his feet on the ground, announcing his intention to participate in the long jump as well as his favoured sprinting events.
Hot on his heels in terms of speed came David Rudisha who claimed a new world record in the 800m, finishing in a time of 1:40:91, just shy of the 100-second mark, a truly incredible show of power and acceleration.
The host nation’s Mo Farrah emulated the legendary Emil Zatopek by winning gold-medals in both the 5,000m and 10,000m; an awesome display of speed and stamina.
