Usain Bolt: Truly One of a Kind

Usain Bolt is to track and field what Arnold Palmer was to golf. He's putting his sport on the map, just as Palmer did with his. Spectators at events anticipate his arrival. He brings electricity to the air. He indeed does have that special quality seen in only those athletes who are the very best at what they do. Bolt is one of those unusual athletes who comes along very seldom, if ever. He dominates his sport with seemingly effortless splendor, and we need to count ourselves fortunate to be able to see such an extraordinary talent. He's shown below anchoring his teams 4 X 100 meter relay event. He and his Jamaican teammates set a new Penn Relays record in this relay, due much in part to his 8.79 finishing leg.
