This is the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt, the world record holder and Olympic champion in the 100 and 200 meter dashes, after a 100 meter race in Ostrava, Czech Republic, last May. How fast is he? During his most recent 100m world record of 9.58 seconds, he reached a peak speed of 46 kilometers an hour.
Here he slowed down long enough for reporters to ask him some questions and for me to snap this from the hip –literally. I was delighted to learn that it was selected as today’s Photo of the Day on PhotoLord.com. Check out the site, subscribe and/or follow for some terrific photography every single day.
