Usain Bolt believes the 100 meters can be run in 9.4 seconds, though he says winning another Olympic gold medal would be good enough for him.

Bolt tells The Associated Press he would like to be a fixture on the short list of Olympic sprinters who have won gold medals in consecutive Olympics. He shattered world records in the 100 and 200 in Beijing to win his first gold medals. His world-record time in the 100 stands at 9.58 seconds.

As of this week, the London Olympics are less than two years away. Currently, Bolt is preparing for a race next month in Stockholm that will pit him against his biggest competition -- American Tyson Gay and fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell.
