You're the idiot. Why set a record which will be harder to break later?
Better to lower it a little bit at a time several times and reap the rewards several times.
Here's why - you never know when your hammy's going to pop, or one of a million other things that keep you from doing it. Don't f**k around just to lower a record 'later'. You may never get that chance again. And it's disgusting, to be frank, to see someone tra-la-la around when they should be all about business.
Whatever dude if it was Gay celebrating a win you would be celebrating with him. Don't be a hater
Not a 'hater'. I admire Bolt - he's a great sprinter. Just seems like a waste to have a truly ASTONISHING record (sub 9.6?) within reach and to fritter it away with an adolescent (yes - childish) display of chest thumping before crossing the line. Also reckless, although it didn't work out that way - I've seen too many NFL dances begin on the 5, only to have the TD ripped away. So, let him have his celebration you say - ok. Just hope it works out for him and he gets a chance to 'finish' a race at his true potential speed.
