Richard Thompson is at the bottom of this image, and he won the silver medal, running it in 9.89 seconds (fast). But that means he lost by two-tenths of a second, which is basically an hour in 100 meter times. But that's not the end of his dominance.
From left to right it goes Walter Dix (Bronze), Richard Thompson (Silver), and Usain Bolt (Gold). This is a good twenty meters before the race is over. He is so far ahead that he feels the need to do some trash talking before crossing the finish line. If he tried the entire race, 9.59 would've been a more realistic time. Unbelievable.
I think this is the best picture that captures how amazing it was. Notice how even the back of the field is. Why are they so even? Oh yeah, they're the fastest men in the world! Usain is making them look like high school track athletes.
It was the coolest thing I have ever seen in my twenty years on this planet.
