    I can probably do the 100 metres in 20 seconds but congrats to those guys who all do it in less than 10 seconds. Some dude from America won it while some dude from Jamaica who was favourite came third.

    I could probably do 100m in about 5 minutes. With the wind behind me. Unless there's a beer at the end of it, in which case I could prabably manage about 17.35 seconds.

    Why California? I can see all the action from my T.V set.

    I have actually ran 100m under official race conditions. My time was 13.56 (-0.3m/s wind).

    I was rooting for Powell and new WR. But well...

    The women's 100m was ran in 11 seconds but they were all so close one cannot tell for certain.

    What a cock up with the scoreboard!!!

    There wasn't ANY difference between first and second.

    I think those who have a photo should run again straight after if the results are not conclusive as in this case.

    With the right training and the right motorbike I could shave a few seconds off that time.

    Those guys are running faster each year. It must be the result of training and maybe a little performance drug.
