    Default can you help me listen to this clip about Bolt?

    Q1:
    _________ got a little bit work to do. Still ahead of Usain Bolt finally got to ....

    Can any native figure out the above excited words from the sports commentator before the newsreader's words? It is too vague for me?

    Q2:
    (Newsreader):" ___________ performance from Usain Bolt. One year since London 2012. "

    I cannot be sure the words before "performance": Are they "A blistering"?


    Thanks a lot!

    Jason

    Very hard to hear, but I think the commentator says "……got a little bit of work to do because Rogers is still ahead (…?…) Usain Bolt finally gets the gold."
    I can't quite get the missing words but it almost sounds as if the commentator started to say "here he comes/goes" but didn't get it out in time.

    I've had another listen and now I think it's probable that someone else in the commentary booth shouts "here he comes or goes" just before the commentator says "Usain Bolt finally gets there (or gets the win/gold)".

    The newsreader says: "And a blistering performance from…"
