Even if he doesn't break 9.4 seconds at the Olympics like he think he can, Usain Bolt is already preparing for victory in London.
He's so confident, in fact, that he already knows what he's going to tell reporters in the moments following his assumed victory. And in true Bolt fashion, it will not disappoint.
"At the end of London 2012, I want to go into the press conference and say before anyone asks me a question — 'You are now looking at a living legend,'" he said, according to The Sun. "That’s what I want to say — before that last press conference after my 200m final."
The Jaimaican looks to defend his gold medals in the 100 and 200 meters. And coming out on top in both events is what Bolt thinks will secure his place in the Olympic pantheon.
It's typical bombast we've come to see from him. And if you were expecting anything different, it wouldn't be Usain Bolt. He might be right, but can we at least light the Olympic cauldron first?
