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.
