Usain Bolt victory 2008 vs 2012

Which victory was more impressive. I think the 2012 victory was more impressive because of the pressure he was under coming into this race and the strength of the field, and the fact he defended his title successfully. What do you guys think?

The second one because it was faster than the first.

Simple really.

He didn't run through the line in the first one. So times don't really matter.

Yes he did. Don't be fooled by his posture.

Difficult to say,both were equally impressive for different reasons.
2012-He was up against a much tougher field,his auro of invincibility had been damaged,it was the first time people were doubting him,and also he wasn't fully fit.Yet he came through,to complete the double.

2008-his first games,he must have been nervous,but he also had that freshness and was much fitter.In 08,people never expected as much as they did in 2012,so he had less pressure.But the way he took the world by storm in 08,and the way he demolished the field was equally impressive.Both records aren't really that important,because I feel in 08 he could have taken the world record.

2012 for me. Taking part in the strongest ever 100m final line up, not being 100% fit, having massive pressure on his shoulders and the talk of millions doubting him.

The guy demolished this field too and showed the world what he is truly all about.

Impeccable.

2012 is the best - fastest race ever right?

2012 was the best performance by Usain!

2012. But his world championship in 09 was better and a stronger field.
