Bolt ran the race in 9.79 seconds, which is just absurdly fast (though not as fast as the 9.4 seconds he says he plans to run at the Olympics).
When you think about how fast Bolt is, all the blame for the collision has to fall on the girl. Dude was running like he was shot out of a cannon. When you’re running that fast, you need some distance to slow down. Think Bo Jackson running into the tunnel after scoring a 91-yard touchdown against the Seahawks in 1987. Bolt’s the same way: he only has one gear — super fast. You can’t expect the guy to just slam on the breaks. Flower girl has to know better than that.
