Bolt throws down bus challenge in China

Beijing: Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is looking for a bus that can outrun him in the world`s most populous country China, raising another challenge against transit vehicles, after he raced a metro bus over 80 meters in Buenos Aires on Saturday, according to reports.

According to China Daily, on Dec 16, the world`s fastest man asked in his Tencent Weibo post if there were any Chinese buses that want to race against him, raising the eyebrows of Chinese web users.

Proud Chinese users flaunted their hometown buses in response, saying daring drivers on Qingdao`s outskirts, and those in Central China`s Wuhan are certainly no pushovers, the report said.

Those from Hunan province`s capital, Changsha, said their local bus drivers could breathe through, because they drive a bus like it`s Formula One, the report added.

Bolt took part in a 80 metres race against a public bus in a televised demonstration event in Buenos Aires on Dec 15, and delivered a motivational speech on leadership during his three-day visit to Argentina, the report further said.
