Yesterday I got to meet Usain Bolt. Hes very popular anywhere you go and he certainly has marketed his brand and is continuing to do so... he is so relaxed and comfortable with the promotional thing... and his face is recognisable to many people. I asked him for his autograph as its my sons birthday on the 9th of June... even though there is no justice in Great Britain, I will act appropriately as his father and I know one day we will be together again. Then , a different story will be told and the truth will come out. Usain Bolt is a great role model for the kids and for anyone hoping to achieve the impossible dream. Think about it... he broke the unbreakable... shattered the record... 9.58 seconds for a 100 meters. I was in the Olympic games in 1988 when I saw Ben Johnson do the 9.79 record. It was then removed because he had been found with drugs... but it was still the fastest time for a long time after... then along came Usain...from Jamaica...
a land that has bred so many sprinters. Maybe its the food...maybe the sun...maybe the genes...mayeb the water...I dont know... but whatever it is ...it seems to work for athletes training there. So the RACE AGAINST MALARIA campaign was held yesterday and for an hour we got to see USAIN BOLT inaction. He seemed smitten by the Norwegian girls... cant say that I blame him really, its a cold country but the babes are sure hot...!.. and they like to drink and go out with friends and sing on the bus... its a scandinavian thing...maybe from the viking days...who knows, shall we see Usain win the Olympic gold again? -I hope so... but he did look a little weak. Maybe tired from all the promotional work... I hope he takes time out to rest before the big one and not try to do too much. Whatever he does do he has and is an inspiration for
his fans and is an ambassador for his nation and the sporting world. His name will go down in history and I am so glad that I got to meet him.
