That’s the beauty of the sports records are ment to be broken
Pablo Aguirre its dangerous if he stays fit until he reaches his prime. Many of these young talents don’t reaches their full potential because they focus on records rather than staying injury free, one injury can ruin a sprinter career. He is promising though, I expect great things from him.
I can comfortably say Usain bolt’s records are safe. These records will end so many American athletes careers because how obsessed they are about these records.
Kevin Francis si comparamos las edades y las circunstancias si está peligro amigo
A Jamaican will be ready to break bolts record the transition has started.
He should focus on being healthy until he reaches his prime before thinking about records.
Bolt ran for fun, that’s the big difference. One injury can ruin a promising career ask Blake about that.
When he beat 19.30 ,then he can think about 19.
19… that’s not a baby run and a reminder it took bolt three rounds to ran that time .heat, semifinals and final,not just one race.so he still will remain the goat..
Ricardo Dixon, if the primary goal for any athlete is not to be healthy first and foremost then pointless being an athlete? Secondly, i am pretty sure Knighton isn’t really thinking about breaking records. Can’t we just congratulate the young gun for his remarkable achievement and talent that he is. He’s been running fast for a while now. There’s always gonna be talentes athletes and he is just one of them. I’d love to see him be the first to go sub 19. I’m loving it.
