SPORTS Is Coleman Really The New Usain Bolt?

Is Coleman Really The New Usain Bolt?

The News

The recently concluded IAAF World Indoor Championship has brought glory to American sprinter Christian Coleman who won the 60 meters final race at Birmingham , England. After Bolt’s retirement, fans are already looking for someone who is as good as Bolt and Coleman is one of the favourites.

behind the news

Usain Bolt is probably one of the best athletes of all time. He has won eight gold medals in Olympics which is a record for the sportsman in any kind of sport. He is an 11-time world champion for winning 100 meters, 200 meters and 4X100 meters racing championship. Coleman, on the other hand, is just 22 years old and is a world record holder for the 40 meters dash race. He has won two silver medals in World Championship but no Olympic medal as of now. Though he is nowhere near Bolt, he is ahead of Bolt in terms of his age. At the age of 21, he broke 10 seconds barrier; 3 months ahead of the age when Bolt did it. He broke the collegiate level record with 9.82 seconds ( at NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene) and Bolt had done it in 9.76 seconds. He has been really impressive and experts believe that he has the ability to be the next Bolt. However, after the victory, Coleman has made it clear that he wants to make his own mark in the game rather than being the next Usain Bolt.

beyond the news

Clearly, it’s very early to compare Coleman with Bolt. Christian thought has the potential but will he be able to replace Bolt with his performance is difficult to be told because of the huge age difference. Coleman has his whole career in front of him and surely he will make his name in the incoming years to make his own identity, which he actually wants.
