Usain was so fast he could pose for pictures on his way to the finish line and still win.

As fast as Olympian Usain Bolt is, the Jamaican native is nowhere near as fast as Cool Papa Bell.

Cool Papa Bell was so fast, posthumously famed baseball pitcher Satchel Paige said, Papa Bell could get out of bed, turn out the lights across the room and be back in bed under the covers before the room went completely dark.

I understand if you are a little skeptical of the account, since no recording is known to exist of the prodigious feat. But that doesn't mean it couldn't have happened...

100 meter sprinter winners used to be mostly American. Many would learn to catch a football and make money. Bob Hayes and Homer Jones come to mind.
