Usain Bolt: Best Case, Worst Case for Jamaican Sprinter at 2012 Olympics

Usain Bolt has given the punditry plenty to debate heading into the 2012 London Olympics.

The defending gold medalist at the 100-meter dash and the 200-meter dash has looked like his usual brilliant self at times this season, most notably during a two-week stretch in late May and early June where he posted back-to-back sub-9.80-second marks in the 100.

Other times, Bolt has looked uncharacteristically beatable. He clocked a pedestrian 10.04 at a late May meet in Ostrava, Czech Republic and more recently lost to training partner Yohan Blake in the 100 and the 200 at Jamaican Olympic Trials.

One could draw wildly different conclusions about Bolt's Olympic prospects based on the above information, and we'll do just that with the best-case and worst-case scenarios provided in the slides ahead.
