Usain Bolt is looking to try out with a British soccer team. What athlete that you’ve seen in the Olympics would you most like to see trying out for an American baseball team? Ethan Santa Clara, CA _________________________ Olympians turned baseballers? I like the way you think, Ethan. And I welcome the possibilities! I can’t help but think Michael Phelps would look good in Yankee pinstripes. The man has 20 Olympic medals — hardware that would surely look good next to 27 World Series trophies. And let’s face it, the dude has earned the right to be as cocky and off-putting as he is. He might not have Derek Jeter’s golden little black book yet, but some time around the Captain and soon he too could be kissing mirrors of himself. When it comes to actual physical strength though I might suggest Holley Mangold take up a spot in the American League as a DH. She wouldn’t have to actually do much running or having anyrefined skills other than swinging for the fences; and accounting for her...

Bolt wins third gold in 4x100 relay

Usain Bolt got the gold medal and another world record, too, anchoring the Jamaicans to victory in 36.84 seconds Saturday night to cap off his second straight 3-for-3 Olympics. The United States finished in 37.04 seconds, the old world-record time set by Bolt and the Jamaicans last year. Trinidad & Tobago got the bronze medal when Canada was disqualified after finishing third...

Usain Bolt Offered Unlimited McNuggets to Put 'Fastest Man Alive' Title to Ultimate Test

Usain Bolt has proven time and again that he's the "fastest man alive." But is the Jamaican sprinter fast enough to compete with the world's fastest online delivery service? After taking home a few more gold medals in London this month, just adding to his collection, Bolt was offered the opportunity of a lifetime -- some may say -- according to Black Sports Online...

Bolt turns DJ to celebrate medals

Usain Bolt went from breaking a record to spinning a record.

Five for Friday: Lewis vs. Bolt a draw

Five things I'm thinking about this weekend while trying to get over my accent envy toward the Jamaicans. 1. Something that seems true (and totally is): Carl Lewis and Usain Bolt are both right. Carl Lewis, the former Houston Cougar and American track legend, is skeptical that Jamaica, a country with the same population as Kansas, is producing reams of the world's best...

Column: Enjoy Bolt for bringing some fun to track

There wasn't any need to shush his doubters this time, because by now Usain Bolt doesn't have any. No reason to celebrate early, either, when there was a chance to make one final statement about just how fast a human being can run. This one was strictly business, a flat out sprint to the finish and into the record books. Sure, there was the obligatory ''To the World...

We haven’t seen the best of Usain Bolt according to former Olympian Michael Johnson

    Usain Bolt came into the 2012 Summer Olympics with more than a few doubters and something to prove in the eyes of many. During last year’s world championships he was disqualified in the 100m event he was not surprisingly favored to win because of a false start. At the Jamaican trials leading up [...]

Denard Robinson Confident He Could Defeat Usain Bolt in 40-Yard Dash

Everyone wants a piece of Usain Bolt these days. In what is becoming some sort of hip trend, another non-sprinter is confident he could go step-for-step with Bolt in the 40-yard dash. This time around, it's Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson. "I've watched [Bolt] run, and I'm pretty sure I can beat him in a 40-yard dash," Robinson said at Michigan's media...

Usain Bolt was mentioned the most on Twitter during the London Olympics

Throughout the 16 days of the London Olympics, roughly 150 million tweets were sent. That is an astronomical number for slightly over a two-week stretch. In fact, so many users were on Twitter at the start of the Olympics that the network even crashed for a short period. No single person was the topic of discussion in more of those 150 million tweets than Usain Bolt. According to...

Denard Robinson: I’m pretty sure I can beat Usain Bolt in the 40-yard dash

Another day, another football player who thinks he is faster than Usain Bolt. With the Olympics having just ended, Bolt’s speed has been a popular topic of discussion among athletes in non-Olympic sports. Everyone wants to be the fastest guy on the team. But being faster than the fastest man in the world would give you serious bragging rights. Even if it’s only in the 40-yard...

Column: London done, so prepare for circus in Rio

IOC President Jacques Rogge still can't figure out what to call Usain Bolt, so here's hoping he gets another Olympics to sort it out. There's just something about his latest effort -''active performance legend'' - that doesn't rise to a gold medal level. There's a lot of things we can call the London Olympics, and still not run out of superlatives...

Canada loses bronze after DQ in 4x100 relay

Justyn Warner spiked the flag down onto the track. What was supposed to be a celebration lap for the Canadians turned into an Olympic moment Warner wished he could forget. Moments after taking third in the 4x100-meter final on Saturday night, Canada was disqualified for stepping outside of its lane. The bronze medal was gone. And so was a chance to be part of a medal ceremony...

Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake, Michael Frater and Nesta Carter of Jamaica won the 4x100m relay race at the Olympics on Saturday night and set a new world record at 36.84 seconds.

Closing Ceremonies No Place For Cover Bands Or Sports Cheats

At the end of the day (a quite English saying that sounds even better with the proper accent) the biggest stage in world sports got smaller. The Olympic Games carry a promise to all sports fans: fair competition, but more on that later. The Games carry a new message after last night's closing ceremonies. As big as the event looms around the globe, it's not big enough to...

Video: Maurice Green Provides a Taste of London Fashion

A few weeks back, our friends from FOX Sports took you to the streets of London to get feel for some of the amazing street art on display. In this week’s edition of the London Beat, a former Olympic champion and world record holder gives us a taste of London fashion.
