• 100m and 200m Records Can be Broken

Article source:

World's fastest man, Usain Bolt, thinks that he can improve his 100m and 200m world records and he can be the first man on planet to run the 200m race under 19 seconds.

 

"World records are always there to be broken. I am sure the times over 100 and 200 metres can still be improved," Bolt told General-Anzeiger and Koelnische Rundschau newspapers on Wednesday.

Bolt believes that if he could go under 19 second mark in the 200m, it would be almost impossible for new generation sprinters to beat that time.

Usain Bolt also said that he is not planning to try long jump since there are higher risks of getting injured.
