BEIJING - AUGUST 20: Usain Bolt of Jamaica competes on his way to breaking the world record with a time of 19.30 to win the gold medal in the Men's 200m Final ahead of Churandy Martina of Netherlands Antilles, Brian Dzingai of Zimbabwe and Shawn Crawford of the United States at the National Stadium during Day 12 of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games on August 20, 2008 in Beijing, China.

It may not exactly be Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake but these two nonagenarians ran a thrilling 100-meter heat during a veteran's track meet in San Sebastian, Spain the other day. 94-year-old Emiel Pauwels of Belgium came for behind to defeat Finland's 95-year-old Ilmari Koppinen at the tape. What may look like more of a preventive dash to the men's room than an athletic event (it might have been both) is a moot point considering that both men still cracked the heralded  17-second barrier. Koppinen was overheard later telling people he lost because the Belgian sprinter was younger.
