This took the piss really!!

We really felt sorry for the other runners that took part.lol
They tried so hard to come close bolt,but he is from another planet of runners.

His winning time in Sunday’s rarely run 150 metres was an eye-popping 14.36sec, smashing the previous best-known time for the distance of Canada’s Donovan Bailey – 14.99sec run on bend against Michael Johnson in 1997.

Britain’s Marlon Devonish was a distant second in 15.07sec. He admitted Bolt was in “a league of his own”.

Bolt’s time will now be ratified by the International Association of Athletics Federations as an official ‘world best’, though it is his 100m split-time that will send shockwaves across the world – 9.90sec on a rain-soaked track in temperatures more common to February than mid-May.

His performance, which ended with his trademark ‘lighting bolt’ celebration, was a reward for the several thousands hardy souls who shivered under umbrellas for most of the afternoon beside the temporary track erected on Manchester’s Deansgate..
