TO BE a world cham­pion in any sport would be awe­some, but imagine be­ing the fastest man on earth. Usain Bolt is that per­son and his pe­riod of dom­i­nance is un­likely to end any­time soon — al­though Justin Gatlin is get­ting close. Bolt, 27, starred at the world cham­pi­onships in Moscow when he claimed the 100m and 200m ti­tles be­fore help­ing Ja­maica to win the 4x100m re­lay to be­come the most suc­cess­ful ath­lete in the 30 years of the world cham­pi­onships. It hasn’t been a good year for Ja­maican ath­let­ics, but Bolt con­tin­ues to be a breath of fresh air.
