Usain Bolt takes on a bus in Argentina in his latest battle, but who comes out on top?
Bolt was invited to compete against the 59 bus in Buenos Aires in an effort to conquer the mechanical world
Olympic gold medals? Check. 100m and 200m world records? Check. For the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt, there isn’t much left for his to accomplish, but he can now add to his blossoming CV that he is faster than a bus after he comfortably won a race in Buenos Aires.
Bolt had been invited to race against the 59 bus down the 9 of July Avenue in the Argentinian capital, but he wasn’t even required to get out of first gear as he cruised to the finish line in front of fans that lined the street.
Come the end, they onlookers appeared unmoved by his latest triumph – the 59 bus filled with passengers failed to pose a threat across the 80m sprint – and Bolt began to laugh at the ease of which his latest victory came.
Having had a massage and a stretch to limber up, Bolt then competed against fellow sprinters across 120m, although he predictably won that encounter as well with consummate ease.
The biggest question though remains whether he will still be on top of the world when the Rio 2016 Olympics take place, but the Jamaican insists that his focus is on a second consecutive successful defense of his 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay gold medals.
“One of my main goals is to go to the Rio Olympics, as I was saying, to do it again,” said Bolt.
“To defend my titles and it's never been done three times so, for me, that's me trying to set the bar as high as possible. To just push the barrier.”
