“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?
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.
