Usain-Bolt-Yohan-Blake-Warren-Weir-At-The-Podium

Usain Bolt, fellow Jamaicans fire back at Carl Lewis following 200m triumph

Nine-time Olympic Gold medalist, Carl Lewis may be learning the hard way never to make Jamaicans angry as the island’s greatest sprinting product and several of his fans have fired back at the highly revered American athlete.

As expected, Usain Bolt cemented his legendary status at the Olympic games in London by repeating as the 200m champion in a time of 19.32 seconds. Bolt, along with Jamaican teammates, Yohan Blake (Silver – 19.44s) and Warren Weir (Bronze – 19.82s) ensured that London’s medal stand was proverbially painted in black, green and gold; completing an unprecedented sweep of the high-profile event.

However, the attention turned to Usain Bolt as he had a verbal go at Carl Lewis for comments that the American sprinting legend made a few days ago in light of Bolt’s defense of his Olympic 100m title on Sunday. During an interview, Lewis implied that Jamaica’s drug testing procedures and doping controls needed to be strengthened compared to other countries.

At a press conference on Thursday, Bolt addressed Lewis’ comments; intimating that he has no respect for the former American champion and eight-time World champion.

Asafa Powell

Asafa Powell hits back at critics following Olympic performance

Despite the unprecedented success of our growing sprint legends during these Olympic games in London, it appears that the failure of another Jamaican athlete has somewhat overshadowed the achievements accomplished by the island’s track stars in recent days.

Former world-record holding sprinter, Asafa Powell has taken loads of criticism from fans after pulling up during the highly anticipated 100m final on Sunday. Despite the fact that fellow sprint superstars, Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake won gold and silver in the event respectively, giving Jamaica 1-2 in an Olympic 100m final for the second straight summer games, most of the talk surrounded Powell and his unfortunate set of circumstances during the final, when he injured his groin and finished last in the event.

Since Sunday’s race, much ire has been directed towards Powell, with many fans expressing their frustration on social media; pointing to his past shortcomings in major events as they lashed out against the man who was once branded ‘Afasa.’ Some fans later speculated that Powell faked the injury while others insisted that he’s chock full of excuses.

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 uninjured, resting at home following car accident

Multiple world record holding Jamaican sprinter, Usain Bolt is resting comfortably at his Kingston home following a car accident that took place early Sunday morning in the island’s capital.

The Olympic gold medal winning athlete was involved in a minor car accident in Half-Way-Tree where his BMW crashed into a guard rail shortly after 5 a.m. as he was making his way from a popular party in Kingston. However, Bolt escaped unharmed and according to his publicist, Carole Beckford, the 100m and 200m record holder is resting well at home.

“There were no injuries at all. He is fine and resting at home,” Beckford told the Associated Press.

Reportedly, the police are still investigating the crash.

Meanwhile, former world record holding Jamaican sprinter, Asafa Powell was travelling in another car at the time of the crash and later tweeted, “My friend and countryman [Bolt] is ok after a fender bender.” Additionally, Powell intimated that he was not injured nor was he inside Bolt car as the crash occurred.

Bolt and Powell had only just returned to the island earlier this week after finishing first and second respectively at the 100m during a Diamond League meet in Oslo, Norway. Bolt clocked in at 9.79 seconds while Powell registered a time of 9.85 seconds.

This isn’t the first time that Bolt has been involved in a car crash. In 2009, the internationally acclaimed track superstar crashed his BMW into a ditch along a highway. Following that accident, Bolt underwent minor surgery on his left foot after stepping on thorns while escaping from the wreckage.

Usain Bolt splits from girlfriend

It appears as if a relationship involving the world’s fastest man has reached the finish line sooner than expected as he’s reportedly parted ways with his latest girlfriend.

Multiple Olympic gold medalist, Usain Bolt has ended his six month relationship with Jamaican based Slovakian fashion designer, Lubica Slovak. According to media reports, sources close to Bolt insist that this move was made so that Bolt could focus his attention towards defending his 100m and 200m titles at this year’s Olympic Games in London, England and avoid possible distractions.

Bolt and Slovak were reportedly introduced to each other by prominent Jamaican Reggae singer, Tami Chynn shortly before last Christmas.

Bolt to run 100m at Czech event in May

Jamaica’s world 100-metre record holder Usain Bolt will run the main sprint at the Golden Spike event in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava on May 25, organisers said on Thursday.

Jamaica’s Usain Bolt pcitured after winning the men’s 100m during the Diamond League athletics meeting in Brussels in September 2011. The world 100-metre record holderwill run the main sprint at the Golden Spike event in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava on May 25, organisers said on Thursday.

They said the Golden Spike was likely to be this year’s first start in Europe for Bolt, who is set to defend his Olympic 100-metre and 200-metre gold in August in London.

The news came in the wake of Bolt’s withdrawal from the Camperdown Classic event in Kingston, Jamaica last Saturday that sparked concerns about his health which were later denied by Bolt’s coach.

The Golden Spike organisers earlier confirmed Cuba’s world record holder Dayron Robles for the 110-metre hurdles race at Ostrava.

Jamaica’s Veronica Campbell-Brown is expected on the 200-metre track, and US runner LaShawn Merritt will run 400 metres at the event, the organisers said.

Usain Bolt aims to get four golds in London 2012

Usain Bolt wants to compete in four separate events at the 2012 Olympics to match a record that’s older than he is!

Carl Lewis set the record for a male athlete to get four gold medals in track and field at the same Olympics.

That was in Los Angeles in the USA, way back in 1984 – two years before Bolt was born.

Bolt, from Jamaica, says he will run the 4x400m relay for the first time, as well as defending his Olympic titles in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m.

Usain Bolt Unfazed By Gatlin Return

Usain Bolt Unfazed By Gatlin Return

Usain Bolt says he is happy to compete against Justin Gatlin, who has just returned from a four-year doping ban.

United States sprinter Gatlin was banned in 2006 after a positive test for testosterone.

Jamaican Bolt, the Olympic and world champion, told BBC Sport: “If he is there, I will run against him.”

Gatlin, a 100m gold medallist in Athens in 2004, has always insisted that he has never knowingly taken a performance-enhancing substance.

He regained his eligibility to compete in July and has won both of his comeback races.

Gatlin won the 100m and 200m sprint double at the 2005 World Championships to add to his 2004 Olympic 100m title but has been out of action since June 2006, although he still hopes to race at the 2012 Olympics in London against Bolt.

“This is my job and if anyone tries to dethrone me or tries to beat me then I’m definitely going to be stepping up to the plate and competing against them no matter who they are and what they’ve done,” continued Bolt.

Bolt has ruled out competing for the rest of 2010 after suffering a back injury. It has been an injury-plagued season for the Jamaican.

The 23-year-old suffered his first 100m final defeat in two years when he was easily beaten by Tyson Gay on 6 August at Stockholm’s Diamond League meeting.

Bolt is the current world record holder, running 9.58 seconds at the 2009 World Championships in Berlin, and believes he can go even faster.
