    consider

    “There were no world records in London ,but consider also that we are only seeing a portion of what Usain Bolt is capable of”



    The above is from a newspaper.

    It just doesn't make sense to me. Can any native explain to me?

    Thanks!

    Re: consider

    The sentence is heroically inconsequential. The fact that no world records were set in the London Olympics does imply that Bolt - being a competitor there - didn't set one. This is trivially true. And it may also be true that could do better; he just didn't have to.
