PLAYERS: Usain Bolt
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. Shutl, British-based web service company, sent the Olympic sprinter a letter asking him to be a spokesman for the company. Obviously, Bolt being the fastest man alive has plenty of appeal as a spokesman but the...

Bolt turns DJ to celebrate medals

Usain Bolt went from breaking a record to spinning a record. The sprinter completed the defense of all three Olympic titles by anchoring Jamaica's 4x100-meter relay team to a world record Saturday night. Bolt then hotfooted it from Olympic Stadium to a party nearby in east London, where he turned DJ, entertaining the packed crowd in the early hours of Sunday morning. At the...

A Pick 6 of NFL teams that could use Usain Bolt

Now that the Olympics are over, there's one very fast young man looking at one very long layoff before resurfacing in Rio in four years. Hey, Usain Bolt! You want to play in the NFL? Bob Hayes, gold medal winner in the 100 meters at the 1964 Tokyo Games and dubbed world's fastest human, did it. So did Renaldo Nehemiah, world record-holder in the 110-meter hurdles who missed...

Usain Bolt goes from breaking records to spinning them in DJ booth

Denard: I can beat Usain Bolt in a 40 yard dash

Photo: John David Mercer-US PRESSWIRE/Illustration: Michael Heidner/FOX Sports Detroit) Jamaican track freak Usain Bolt is unquestionably the fastest man on earth, right?  He’s won back-to-back Olympic gold medals in both the 100M and 200M sprints and owns the world records for both events. But Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson doesn’t care about Olympic golds or records...

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 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...

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...

Rather than fantasizing about legendary Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, Denard Robinson should strictly concentrate on the Alabama Crimson Tide

Prodded by dreamy backup signal-caller Devin Gardner, dynamic University of Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson claimed Sunday that he could trump legendary Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt in a 40-yard dash.

Social media proves a force in consuming Olympics

The London Olympics may well be remembered as the event that drove home the power of social media - partly to the chagrin but mostly to the benefit of NBC, which controlled images of the games in the United States. Twitter estimates there were more than 50 million tweets about the Olympics, at a pace of 80,000 per minute after Jamaica's Usain Bolt won the gold medal in the 200...

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...
