Asafa hits 9.77 again?

I 've been wondering if Asafa has a thing with the number 977. Three times now the speedy Jamaican has equalled the world record for the men's 100m at 9.77 seconds.He did that today at the IAAF Golden league in Zurich.


The first was on 14 June of last year at the Olympic Stadium in Athens, before he equalled the feat on 11 June of this year in Gateshead, England, just one month after American Justin Gatlin equalled the mark in Doha, Qatar.


The 23-year-old confessed that he'd “just have to dip when I get to the finish line,” And me thinks thats is a good decision, I am tired of 9.77. Just a dip down to 9.75 would be nice, wouldn't it Asafa.
