Mizmor l'Assaf

Asafa Powell of Jamaica just lowered the world record for the men's 100 meters to 9.74 seconds (link) in Rieti, Italy. No, Asafa's not Jewish as far as I know, but his feat is a thing of surpassing beauty. Our tradition prescribes a special brakha on seeing something or someone of surpassing beauty:

ברוך אתה ה' אלוקנו מלך העולם שככה לו בעולמו.

100 meters
