Is Usain Bolt Faster Than A Corvette Grand Sport?

This evening in Berlin, the Jamaican sprinter broke his own world record of 19.30 at the 200 meter sprint with a time of 19.19 seconds.

The M3-flipping Bolt is now the man who holds the world title, the Olympic title and the world record in both the 100 meters and the 200 meters: he set the former on August 16 with a time of 9.58, besting his previous record of 9.69 from last summer at the Beijing Olympics.


With first places worth $60,000 and world records worth $100,000, the lanky Jamaican bagged a cool $320,000 at the Berlin world championships-more than enough to replace his crashed BMW M3 for his 23rd birthday, which is tomorrow.
