Justin Gatlin ‘Breaks’ Usain Bolt’s 100m World Record On Japanese TV Show

Posted by

Justin Gatlin has beaten Usain Bolt’s 100m world record after he ran it in 9.45 seconds on a Japanese television show called Kasupe. 

Only thing is, he was assisted by fans blowing out gusts of air to provide momentum, meaning the time will not officially stand but it’s fun to watch nonetheless.

Gatlin‘s 9.45-second dash may have been illegal, but there’s no denying he possesses the speed to trouble Bolt this summer in Brazil.

However, given the Jamaican has dominated the sprint events at the last two Olympics, winning six gold medals in total, getting the better of Bolt on the biggest stage of all will be an almighty challenge—both physically and mentally—for the American.
