New Usain Bolt, New Usain Bolt. New Usain Bolt. No one should assume the new Usain Bolt. This is exaggerated. it rocks. That’s a lie. but…

To meet Letsile Tebogo, A 19-year-old boy from Botswana—yes, from Botswana—was much shorter (1.70 m) than Bolt and more muscular (85 kg). He doesn’t run like a Jamaican, he doesn’t walk like a Jamaican and above all, he doesn’t smile like a Jamaican, although he dances with the wind. In the past few weeks, he has twice broken the under-20 world record for the 100m, dropping it in 9.91 seconds. That extraordinary mark has drawn comparisons to Bolt in media around the world, but there’s a trick: Bolt doesn’t run 100 meters at his age. She didn’t do so until the age of 20 and 21, in fact, she had already set a new absolute world record (9.69). An athleticism lacking stars, idols capable of overcoming its limitations, Tebogo is best known for his record at the Under-20 World Cup in Cali, but the nickname may be slanderous. New Usain Bolt. very.

Because Tebogo still has it. At the last Eugene World Cup, his debut with the majors, he dazzled in the series (9.94 seconds, his first sub-20 record), but he disappointed in the semi-finals and was out of the limelight with the American triplet. Fred Carey, Marvin Bracey and Trayvon Brommel Ultimately. And at the U-20 World Cup in Cali, this Friday morning, he failed his favorite test, the 200m, in which Israel beat him. Blessings to Akawasi Afrifa Despite another good record.

Jamaican gestures

“I want people to look at me and remember Bolt. He was my idol, the mirror in which I saw myself,” Tebogo declared during the championship, in which he sought to compare himself with Jamaica. He copied all his gestures apart from running fast, very fast. That is, highlighting your country on the shirt by making a frame with your fingers. That is, entering the finish line by moving the index finger of the right hand up and down. And even a sneak peek at the rivals at the end of the test. Bolt’s effect was clear, not so much that Tebogo could fly as much as he could earn. And it really doesn’t matter.

There is a lot of history behind and before the Tebogo. Coming to athletics after a disappointing career in football – yes, he looks like Bolt – he trained in Gaborone, the capital of Botswana, under whose command mogomotsi otsetsweformer coach of Nigel Amos, 800m Olympic runner-up at the 2012 London Games – today sanctioned for doping – and, unlike him, he decided on speed. Already with another coach of the country, kebonmodissa kotshabe, by winning the 100m of the Under-20 World Cup last year and was known for fueling a very interesting movement: the ‘boom’ of African sprinters. with South Africa Akani Symbine (9.84) and Kenyan Ferdinand Omanyala (9.77) As a reference, Tebogo is said to enter the books, although it certainly would be without comparison with the best ever. Signed by Nike and the University of Oregon, where he will train next year, his path alone.

New Usain Bolt. New Usain Bolt. New Usain Bolt. No one should assume the new Usain Bolt. This is exaggerated. it rocks. That’s a lie.
