These are the two fastest men to ever step foot on the planet. Jamaica's Usain Bolt holds the world record over the 100m with a phenomenal time of 9.58 seconds, while Tyson Gay is the fastest American of all time, having completed the same distance in 9.69 seconds.

Here in Clermont, Florida, Gay shows me around the track he dedicates long hours to each day to give himself the best possible chance of dethroning Bolt as the world's fastest human.

"Prefixos"

In the video the reporter used the word 'dethrone' meaning to remove someone from their position of power.

"… to give him the best possible chance of dethroning Bolt"

He used the prefix de- to change the meaning of the word throne.

Prefixes are letters added to the start of a word in order to change the meaning.

Here are some common examples where the prefix gives the word the opposite meaning:

- un

lock unlock

happy unhappy

- dis

appear disappear

agree disagree

- im

patient impatient

possible impossible

Sentenças com a palavra "Time"

In the video the phrase 'of all time' was used.

"Tyson Gay is the fastest American of all time"

In this context 'of all time' means Tyson is the fastest American athlete in recorded history.

Here are some more phrases with the word 'time':

for all time: always

in next to no time: very quickly

waste time: to not make good use of your time

no time to lose: you need to do something quickly or in a hurry
