Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin is soon emerging as the threat to Usain Bolt’s 100m sprint world record. This news broke out after Bellerin recently broke Arsenal’s 40m sprint record earlier held by Theo Walcott.

Walcott bettered Thierry Henry’s 4.82 seconds in 2009 by clocking a time of 4.42 seconds. Bellerin went on to better Walcott’s mark by 1/100th of a second recently and now holds club’s sprint record over the 40m.

The interesting aspect to Bellerin’s 40 m sprint record at Arsenal is that, if the youngster was put up against Usain Bolt in 2009, when the Jamaican created the world record of 9.58 seconds for 100 meters Bellerin would have been ahead of Bolt after the 40 meter mark.

Usain Bolt took 4.64 seconds to reach 40 meters in his World Record run and at that time, Bellerin would have been 2 meters ahead of the Jamaican.

Hector Bellerin, 20 has turned in  to a crucial player for the club after starting 21 games this season. Bellerin’s sprinting will improve as the years go on and some day he just might better Usain Bolt’s World Record of 9.58 seconds for a 100m sprint. For now, Arsenal’s youngster is on the right path after sprinting 40 meters in 4.42 seconds which is better than Bolt’s 4.64 seconds in 2009.
