To date Usain Bolt holds the edge in this brotherly rivalry , holding 9.58 seconds in the 100 metres, world the record.Well a few hours ago at the 2016 Jamaica Olympic Trials Usain ‘The Big Man’ Bolt and Yohan’ The Beast’ Blake won their respective Semi-finals 100 metres race, with Blake in the faster time of 9.95 seconds to Bolt’s 10.05 seconds. Bolt has been plagued with sluggish starts , yet due to sheer willpower , strength and talent has been able to close the gap in the last 20 metres. Yohan Blake doesn’t look that generous in the gap deficit department. The Final later tonight should be a crowd pleaser.
