There is evidence to support Johnson's theory.
- Bolt, a world-class 200-meter runner since he was a teenager, stunned the track and field world this spring by dropping down to the more glamorous 100 meters and dropping a world record 9.72 seconds on reigning world champion Tyson Gay at the Reebok Track Classic in New York City on May 31, 2008. Gay ran a very fast 9.85 seconds and looked like he was running a different race from Bolt.
