On Sunday night, billions of people around the world will be watching Usain Bolt attempt to defend his title as the world’s fastest man.


As a marathon runner I need 5 times less of the oxygen Bolt will be needing to run today's race! 


And sitting on the sofa watching him, thats probably not even worth trying to calculate. I'll be filling my lungs to scream "Bolt" for all of the 9 seconds of the race, but I'm sure that doesn't even come close.

Usain Bolt: drugs suspicions? | Bolt and London 2012 | Scoop.it
OPINION | In a cynical society, otherworldly performances such as Usain Bolt’s can’t be fully celebrated.


Usain Bolt has never been tested positive for using drug enhancing drugs. Is it then fair that we treat his performances with skepticism?  Innocent until proven guilty or guilty until proven innocent?

Even cooler : take a look at where we’re heading : the next generation of athletes. 8 year olds are now able to run 100m in 13 ;46 seconds, thats less than a second off winning third place in 1896 Olympics !

Training the brain for a mind-blowing 100 final | Olympics 2012 | Bolt and London 2012 | Scoop.it


Most often we tend to refer to physical training when talking about an athlete's fitness in preparation for a race, but its all to easy to forget the mental stamina each athlete must also prepare. 


For Bolt, brain training to help keep calm and block out the doubt is key to success. 


With the expectations of his home nation on his shoulders and building pressure from fans and followers around the world, what does an such an athlete do to keep his calm? 


Control the controllable apparently. Easier said that done!
