'What everyone agrees is that Usain Bolt is a freakish exception to all the statistical rules.'

Doesn't this repudiate the argument - some 'freaks' like Bolt can always come along and break records?

It also comes down to the question of why we watch athletics - for the chance of seeing a record broken, or for the competition.
