Is USA sprint dominance at an End?

USA sprint dominance may be at an end based upon the electrifying and record breaking Olypimcs of Jamacia's Usain Bolt. Bolt has plastered the records in the 100, 200 and ran 3rd leg on the record breaking 4 by 100 relay team. Bolt blitzed a 9.69 in the 100 and a low 19 in the 200 meters. I believe the USA, even if they had not dropped the stick, would not have been able to competer with Bolt's Jamacia in the 4 by 100 with them shattering the mark of the Carl Lewis led team. Jamacia ran 39.10 in the 4 by 100 relay. I do not forsee any change in results in the upcoming World Championships of Track and Field to be held in Berlin, Germany in August. And possible, the USA has a chance to lose the 4 by 400 to Jamacia if Bolts decides to run on that. At 6'5 and with long strides, its possible, he could run a low 42, which would be hard to beat, if he has any help, which he does. It will be interesting to see what will happen. Stay tuned.
