There was no Olympiccompetition in 2006, but I suspect that was a typo, in the 2008 Olympics however Usain Bolt won the 100 meters, and 200 meters in world record times 9.69 sec and 19.30 seconds respectively. 100 meter time broke his team mate Osafa Powell's world record which was 9.74, and Michael Johnson's 200 meter world and Olympic record which was 19.32 from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Usain Bold was also apart of the world and Olympic record breaking 4 x 100 meter relay.
