Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we are hearing about the two fastest men in the world and
learning the words, rivalry, phenomenal and dedicate.
Usain Bolt from Jamaica and Tyson Gay from the USA are the two
fastest in men in the world.
So is there any rivalry between them?
Rivalry is when people compete for the same thing.
Let's hear a bit more about the sprinters.
Here is BBC reporter Leon Mann.

These are the two fastest men ever to step foot on the planet.
Jamaica's Usain Bolt holds the world record over the 100m with a
phenomenal time of 9.58 seconds, while Tyson Gay is the fastest
American of all time, having completed the same distance in 9.69
seconds.
Here in Clermont, Florida, Gay shows me around the track he
dedicates long hours to each day to give him the best possible
chance of dethroning Bolt as the world's fastest human.
