Lets hope it happens.
I can't imagine Johnson winning, even if the race is only 60yards.
I'd pay to watch it though.
Read the article. Johnson wanted a short race (60 yds or less). Makes sense. One would figure his best shot would be a short race since Bolt is relatively slow out of the blocks.

the 10.38 chris johnson ran on april 16th 2004 in winter park was wind aided, i should have metioned that, but 10.50 legal or 10.38 wind aided he has no business calling out bolt.
Looks like 10.38 according to this so he might have a shot at Bolt if he works on his start.
You're confused for so many reasons, and you're about to find out how...
So Bolt runs 4.64 through the 40 on his fastest race ever whereas Johnson runs 4.2. That is a huge difference. You could park a bus b/w that. You guys are crazy if you don't think Johnson has a chance at 60 meters. 100 prob not, but 60 I would bet on Johnson.
