Watching Usain and remembering Donald

I watched Usain Bolt‘s 100m final at the World Championships …

and thought about another farewell seventy years ago:

I wondered if spectators on another August day at the Oval in 1948 felt like I did last night.

I had not expected Usain to win. The evening gave me an opportunity to reflect on an epic career (“heroic deeds and events significant to a culture”).
