This is an old video clip, but well worth a revisit. Maurice Greene recorded a wind-aided 9.86 seconds, winning the 100-meter event at the 2004 Home Depot Invitational in California.

You can’t call him humble, but he did win. A lot. This is the same man who had “GOAT” tattooed on his arm – an acronym for “Greatest Of All Time”. Greene announced in February that he was retiring at age 33 and not competing at Beijing. His indoor 60m world record (6.39 s) still stands.
