    I enjoy it for what it is and not what it could/should have been.
    Just my personal opinion - I enjoy it on both levels (and have nothing wrong with people enjoying these types of performances at either level). By itself, runs like Bolt's are great because they are the fastest ever, and also in the pressure cooker that is in the Olympics. But I also enjoy the "what if/what could have been" aspect because performances like Bolt's naturally make you wonder what really are the limits of human performance, or of a certain athlete. If Bolt had to run hard through the line and lean to get 9.69, I think people would still be excited since he was the first one to break 9.70, but not as excited and amazed and buzzed as the performance he actually did turn in. Other examples that come to mind (for me) are ElG's 3000, Morceli's 1994 5000m, or some of Isi's pre-Oly vaults this year where she had major clearance. Anyway, just my two cents...

    The taco flew by me at such an amazing speed! Fast enough to make me stop painting my picture of Jerusalem! Inspired to go for a run I turned on youtube to watch Usain Bolt run an amazing race in the rain. Ecstatic, I grabbed 10 rubber plates and glued them to the ceiling. Feeling a little tired from all this action I am now relaxing in a tub of milk listening to 50 cent.

    The bigger the stage, the greater the race. The Olympics is the big schmenge that made Usain Bolt immortal...not Brussels.
    The entire purpose of the Olympic Games is to crown the worlds fastest human. All other events are afterthoughts, there to make the entire spectacle cost effective.

    My cousin Vinny and his 4 friends on the other side of the track recorded the race on their cell phones. After downloading the videos and taking screen shots and adjusting for nebulous 'parallax' issues (for me to know and you to find out), we concluded with certainty down to 21 decimal places that Bolts time "wudda been" 9.212546358523568566654, according to the ' if ifs and buts were fudge and nuts' corollary.

    Anyone who disagrees with me, or dismisses my endless grammar school analogies, is taking all of the fun out of the sport.

    Which would make your calculator needless and you can't really aspire to that. :wink:

    I agree with malmo, winning the Olympic Final with a WR is the biggest accomplishment and more impressive. Adjusting times to wind, altitude and conditions is fine, at the end of the day 9.69 is still the WR and will be until someone breaks it. If we always had good, better or even perfect conditions it would be pretty boring.
