Vatican daily praises triumph of Jamaican in 100 meter dash

.- The Vatican daily L’Osservatore Romano praised Jamaican runner Ussain Bolt for his win this past Sunday in the 100 meter. The outstanding performance earned him a gold medal and created a new world record, breaking the one he had previously set.
 
In an article entitled, “Like a Lightning Bolt in Berlin,” the Vatican paper noted that it only took Bolt  “41 steps to reach 100 meters in 9.58 seconds,” thus breaking his former world record of 9.69.
 
The article pointed out that true to his name, the Jamaican runner was like a “lighting bolt able to break down the wall of 9.60 seconds, which few believed possible.  But this young Jamaican—who was a star of the Beijing Olympic Games—soon said he would not be content with this.  His objective now is to run it in 9.50 seconds.”
