It turns out there other sprinters in the world not named Usain Bolt.
Jamaican Yohan Blake raced to the second fastest 200-meter dash of all time with a 19.26 time at the Brussels Diamond League meeting on Friday.
Blake sped by American Walter Dix who had a personal best 19.53, and came in second. Nickel Ashmeade of Jamaica finished in third place at 19.91. Dix was leading near the ned, before Blake turned on his fastest speed in last 50 meters.
I knew I could do something crazy... but to be honest I was surprised when I saw the clock at the finishing line, said Blake, to reporters.
The 19.26 time was just seven-hundreds of a second better than Bolt's record-setting time in Berlin in 2009. Had Blake gotten off to a better start, he might have easily shattered Bolt's record.
Blake and Bolt are training partners, and now the debate of who is the fastest man in the world will start. Blake is only 21, and he might be the main sprinter to watch in the London Olympics next summer.
American Michael Johnson made a name for himself in the 1996 Olympics when he shattered the 200-meter world record at 19.32.
