Britney Spears demolishes Usain Bolt’s 100m world record
It took over 10 years, however Usain Bolt‘s 100m record of 9.58 has finally been broken, and by someone you probably wouldn’t be expecting: Britney Spears. Spears posted on Instagram the day gone by to inform the world that she had simply run a 100m sprint in a time of five.97, a complete 3 and a part seconds sooner than Bolt’s easiest time. Sprinting data are most often decreased via fractions of a moment, which makes Spears’ run all of the extra spectacular.
While her time of five.97 is via a long way the most productive in historical past, Spears wrote, “Usually I run 6 or 7,” and that her “first try was 9.” Imagine that—the observe world has been chasing Bolt’s record for a decade and arising brief each race, however this American pop sensation has been operating sub-10-second 100m dashes ever since she began.
Until Spears, no lady had ever run sub-10 for the 100m (the reliable ladies’s world record is 10.49 via Florence Griffith Joyner). What’s much more astounding is that Spears says she mechanically runs six or seven seconds, and now she has dipped underneath a six-second barrier that, till now, wasn’t on any individual’s radar.
The REAL reason why they shelved the Olympics. Scared of true greatness. https://t.co/zkTExG7E59

Second-fastest land animal
In 2012, National Geographic recorded a cheetah named Sarah on the Cincinnati Zoo as she clocked a five.95 100m sprint. This used to be (and nonetheless is) the quickest time run via any animal on the earth, even though Spears were given extremely shut. Spears has shaved such a lot day off earlier data, it sort of feels inevitable she is going to attempt to overtake Sarah the cheetah’s record. It’s difficult for many sprinters to fortify via zero.20 seconds, however Spears has proven that anything else is imaginable.

Britney Spears, 2021 Olympian?
Spears will flip 39 this December, however since she’s posting instances like those now (with out a trainer and probably missing a correct coaching regime), it sort of feels like for her, age is only a quantity. If she ran for Team USA, she will be the oldest sprinter via a long way, however even on a foul day, she would most probably nonetheless take house the gold medal. Even an eight-second sprint would get her the win. She’s undoubtedly one to observe as we paintings in opposition to Tokyo 2021.
