The Fastest Man in the World wasn’t the fastest man in Jamaica.
That honour goes to Yohan Blake, who got out of the blocks fast and finished the 100-meter final in 9.75 seconds to upset world-record holder Usain Bolt by 0.11 seconds in the Jamaican Olympic trials.
A shocker? Well, that’s for the world to decide. One thing for sure, however, is that the calculus for the London Olympics has changed dramatically.
Blake is the reigning world champion but that victory, last year in South Korea, came with an asterisk because Bolt didn’t run that night after being disqualified for a false start. This was their first rematch, their first real race since then. Bolt was considered the favourite, not only because of his world record – 9.58 seconds – but because Blake, his training partner had never run below 9.84 in his life.

Well, now, he has.
The 9.75 seconds goes down as the best time this year and also breaks the four-year-old National Stadium record; both marks were 9.76 – both held by Bolt.
As much as the numbers, though, it was all that daylight between Blake and Bolt at the finish line that told this story. Blake, the man known as “The Beast,” let out a primal scream when he crossed. Bolt just sort of pulled up – no “To the World” pose or anything else to celebrate.
Asafa Powell will join them at the Olympics, after finishing in 9.88. In the women’s 100, defending Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won in a Jamaican record 10.70 seconds, with Veronica Campbell-Brown in second and Kerron Stewart in third.

Blake beats Bolt.. the fastest man in the world.. by 0.11.

Usain Bolt joins star-studded list of Youth Olympic Games Ambassadors

Three-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt today became the latest high-profile athlete to sign on as a Youth Olympic Games Ambassador, joining a star-studded list that also includes Olympic champions swimmer Michael Phelps and pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva.
Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter who holds the World and Olympic records in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m-relay events, will encourage young people around the globe to become more active in sport in his role as Ambassador for the Youth Olympic Games, the inaugural edition of which is scheduled to take place from 14 to 26 August in Singapore.

Bolt said: “I know how important it is to have mentors and role models when you are young to help give you focus and dreams to aspire to. I couldn’t be happier to be an Ambassador for the first Youth Olympic Games and to provide inspiration and encouragement to the young athletes participating in Singapore this summer and to kids everywhere.”

IOC President Jacques Rogge said: “We are very pleased that Usain will now join Michael and Yelena as Youth Olympic Games Ambassadors. These athletes are at the very top of their respective sports and they know the importance of having inspirational figures in their lives. Children around the world look up to Usain and it is wonderful that he has decided to motivate young people to become more active by joining the Youth Olympic Games team.”

The mission of the Youth Olympic Games is to inspire young people around the world to participate in sport and adopt and live by the Olympic values. The first edition of the Youth Olympic Games will be held this summer in Singapore, with the first winter edition to take place in Innsbruck, Austria, in 2012.
