Usain Bolt is using a series of tuneup meets in advance of the World Championships in August as a kind of retirement tour, one that made a stop in Kingston last night. This would be Bolt’s last ever meet in Jamaica, and so, you can imagine, it was kind of a big deal.
Usain Bolt and the rest of Jamaica’s 4 x 100m relay team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics have been stripped of their gold medals after a stored doping sample from one of the runners, Nesta Carter, tested positive for a banned stimulant.
Usain Bolt has completed the unprecedented feat of winning the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relay in three straight Olympics, anchoring Jamaica to a 37.27 tonight and, with Nickel Ashmeade, Yohan Blake, and Asafa Powell, beating Japan by 0.33 seconds. The U.S. claimed bronze, two hundredths of a second behind Japan.
Usain Bolt went and won his third consecutive gold medal in the 200m this evening, a few days after he won his third straight gold medal in the 100m. Bolt is an all-timer, and the only sprinter ever to defend both sprint golds twice. He’s also the most famous living Jamaican, with a massive, enthusiastic fanbase. What…
Usain Bolt added the 200m gold to his previous 100m in Rio, becoming the first athlete in history to win both the 100 and 200 at three consecutive Games. Once again, he appeared to ease up by the end; once again, he dominated his opponents. His time of 19.78 wouldn’t have beaten Michael Johnson in 1996, but it didn’t…
Usain Bolt, last seen showing the 100 meter dash field a clean pair of heels, is even faster across 200 meters. For the spectator, this mostly means that he has more time to show out.
Usain Bolt started slowly. He usually does.
Police evacuated John F. Kennedy Airport’s Terminal 8 Sunday night after they received reports that shots had been fired. After a preliminary investigation, cops now say there was no shooting—with one official saying “clapping and banging” by people watching the Olympics may have been misinterpreted as gunfire.
Usain Bolt won tonight’s 100m final, his third Olympic gold in a row in that event, with a time of 9.81 seconds. Runners-up Justin Gatlin and Andre de Grasse looked at the finish like they were running in slow motion.
I would; wouldn’t you?
Over the last couple of years, there’s been no reason to think Usain Bolt could be as dominant in Rio as he was in Beijing or London. He’ll turn 30 during those games, for one. For another, he sat out many of the big races since 2013, and lost a lot of time to nagging hamstring troubles last year. Then he went and won…
Usain Bolt has always been talked about like he’s an elemental being, an athlete not bound to the laws of nature. When he set the world record in the 100 meters for the first time in Beijing, he visibly slowed and celebrated as he crossed the line, costing himself at least 0.1 seconds. He then set a double…
For the first time since 2007, the Jamaican men’s 4x100 relay team lost a world championship final as they fell to the United States at the World Relays tonight in the Bahamas.
Marcin Gortat's go-to move for public appearances is driving a Humvee. In June, Gortat rode into his basketball camp in Poland manning the enormous gun mounted on a Humvee. Earlier today, he uploaded a video to Instagram that shows him driving another Humvee, this time with Usain Bolt ( THE CHAMP) in the power…
The 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, ended on August 3, and just like every other international sporting event, the question now is what to do with the massive amount of surplus stuff. So organizers decided to sell it to you, dear fan, at prices that aren't going to last!!!
Even before the advent of Usain Bolt, Jamaican men owned the sprinting world. Since 2006, in the 100 meters, they've had no less than six of the top 10 times of the year, peaking at nine of the top 10 when Bolt set his first world record in 2008. But in 2014, Jamaica's best athletes are missing, and there is no…
Usain Bolt took a lap around the track on Friday at the Anniversary Games on a rocket. Yeah, a rocket. That thing belongs to Bowser in Mario Kart.
The 19.73 seconds it took Usain Bolt to break the tape in the 200 meter finals of the Diamond League meet in Paris was the quickest 200 meters anyone has run this year, edging Tyson Gay's 19.74 in the U.S. World Championships in June.
