Since that memorable day at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, a big question has been, ``What would the 100 m dash world record have been had Usain Bolt not celebrated at the end of his race?'' Bolt's coach suggested that the time could have been 9.52 s or better. We consider this question by measuring Bolt's position as a function of time using footage of the run, and then extrapolate the last 2 s with two different assumptions. First, we conservatively assume that Bolt could have maintained the runner-up's acceleration during the end of the race. Second, based on the race development prior to the celebration, we assume that Bolt could have kept an acceleration of 0.5 m/s2 greater than the runner-up. We find that the new world record in these two cases would have been 9.61+/-0.04 and 9.55+/-0.04 s, respectively, where the uncertainties denote 95% statistical errors.
