Tout dans la vie est une question d'équilibre d'où la nécessité de garder un esprit sain dans un corps sain.


Everything in life is a matter of balance therefore one needs to keep a healthy mind in a healthy body.

The men's 100 metres record is smashed by the biggest margin in modern times


Lightning Bolt

Aug 17th 2009

IT WAS another big occasion and yet another world record for a Jamaican sprinter, Usain Bolt, on Sunday August 16th. At the athletics World Championships he broke the 100 metres sprint record again, taking his own time down to 9.58 seconds from 9.69 seconds, set a year ago at the Beijing Olympics. This is the most the record has fallen since electronic timing was first used in 1968. In the century or so since official records began a little more than a second has been shaved off the quickest time for the sprint, an improvement of 9%.
