New world record has been created in the men’s 100 meter race at the world championship 2009 in Berlin Germany. The world greatest sprinter of all time Usain Bolt has broken his own world record to drop it to whopping 9.58s. His fellow country man and friend Asafa Powell was third in the race. Tyson Gay of the USA was second.
Bolt removed 0.11 seconds from his previous record. The Jamaican sprinter said he wanted to be a legend and I believe it is more than fair to say that he is working hard at that goal as it looks like his only rival is himself and the clock.

This 2009 world championship was also good for both Tyson Gay and Asafa Powell because Gay set a new American record of 9.71s and Powell looks like he is getting back on form. Great run from these three outstanding men.
