Weh Dem Ah Go Do Now?

Usain Bolt has never hidden the fact that he’s a major dancehall fan. Back in Beijing, he celebrated his first Olympic win by busting a Gully Creeper dance.

Trouble in Terminal 8

Last night, while the fastest man alive, Usain Bolt, was winning another medal in Rio, chaos broke out inside Terminal 8 at New York’s JFK Airport and one of the city’s busiest transit hubs had to be evacuated.

Shortly before midnight last night, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey posted the “all clear” on their official Twitter account. “Preliminary inevstigation does not indicate shots were fired at JFK. There are no injuries. At this time, no gun shells or other evidence of shots fired has been found. The terminal was evacuated out of an abundance of caution… Investigation continues.” So what happened?   Video After The Jump… Read more »

Olympic Gold Medalist Usain Bolt Speaks About How Losing to Yohann Blake Kept Him Focused

We’ve seen Usain Bolt celebrating in Jamaica after winning his first three Olympic gold medals. We’ve seen him Swaggin’ in South Korea. And we’ve seen him bigging up Cedella Marley for designing the fresh Puma gear he’s sporting in London 2012. We’ve even seen him having fun with the ladies and crashing a car or two—to the point where some people started to fret that the World’s Fastest Man needed to slow down a likkle bit. But when it came time to handle his business in London, Usain Bolt got a little extra push from his fellow Jamaican, Yohann Blake. “The trials woke me up. Yohan gave me a wakeup call,” Bolt said. “He knocked on my door and said, ‘Usain, wake up! This is an Olympic year.'” So after one race, Bolt’s got one gold medal and one new Olympic record. What’s next? Check the video after the jump.
