u-bolt.jpgUsain Bolt, the world's fastest man and dancing machine, would have run his 100-meter race in Beijing in 9.55 seconds if he hadn't celebrated early.

So says Norwegian physicist Hans Eriksen.
"Eriksen, a physicist at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo, said he got the idea to examine just how quick Bolt could have gone after hearing his coach say that the Jamaican could have run 9.52 seconds.

"We saw the final on television and then spent the whole weekend researching," Eriksen said. "It was fun. We've done more serious research work, but this one got far more attention."

More important things would include staving off that scary death machine called the Large Hadron Collider.

Usain Bolt will now go whip soccer powerhouse Real Madrid into better shape.
