PLAYERS: Usain Bolt
I’m writing this from Dallas, several thousands of miles away from London and this summer’s edition of the Olympics. But fortunately for all of us here at MSF we have Josh Tinley doing a bang up job of covering the Games, and we have our friends at Yardbarker and FOX Sports to share with us what it’s like to actually be in London during this historic fortnight. Below is a video that shows some of the incredible street art that lines the streets of London, including an immaculate painting of Usain Bolt. Disclaimer: there aren’t any shots of the extracurriculars that take place at Olympic Village where the athletes stay. If you want that, you better start training for 2014 or 2016. Nevertheless, this clip is worth a watch. Video: London Beat: Street Art *****

English Farmer’s “The Amazing Usain Bolt Maize Maze” is simply a-maize-ing

See what I did there? From the skilled hand of English farmer Tom Robinson comes this ginormously impressive Usain Bolt corn maze, titled “The Amazing Usain Bolt Maize Maze,” with Bolt in his iconic lightning pose and the words “Go Usain!” below the Jamaican sprinter’s corn field outline. If you find yourself in Staffordshire, England, for some reason, head on over to...

English Farmer Creates “The Amazing Usain Bolt Maize Maze”

Usain Bolt got a pretty great vote of confidence and support from English farmer, Tom Robinson who created a ‘Maize Maze’ with an image of Usain doing his lightning pose and the words “Go Usain!” We have seen some fairly elaborate field mazes in recent history, but this one may take the cake. The maze is on Tom’s land in Staffordshire, England and has been dubbed “The...

New rule makes first bolt from blocks a no-no

Warning: At these Olympics, sprinters will get no warnings. Under the zero-tolerance false-start rule in place for the London Games, a sprinter's mistimed jump from the blocks could destroy four years of hard work in an instant. If that runner happens to be, say, Usain Bolt, it could turn one of the most anticipated moments of the entire Olympics into one huge downer. Under...

English farmer pays tribute to Usain Bolt with massive cornfield maze (photo)

Lend me your “ear,” because I have an interesting story to tell. A farmer in Staffordshire, England has created a gigantic corn maze to pay homage to Jamaican Olympics sprinter Usain Bolt by carving out a maze in the image of the “World’s Fastest Man” in his 15-acre cornfield. Tom Robinson, a huge fan of [...]

Warning! Sprinters won't get one

Warning: At these Olympics, sprinters will get no warnings. Under the zero-tolerance false-start rule in place for the London Games, a sprinter's mistimed jump from the blocks could destroy four years of hard work in an instant. If that runner happens to be, say, Usain Bolt, it could turn one of the most anticipated moments of the entire Olympics into one huge downer. Under...

Video: Usain Bolt: That Is When I Became The Lightning Bolt

Video: Usain Bolt: That Is When I Became The Lightning Bolt. I love how cocky Usain is, and I think this video kind of explains why he is like that. In the video, it is right after he won the Kingston 2002, World Championships at the age of 15. He is a prodigy. He is [...]

Video: Usain Bolt Wanted to Play Cricket

Video: Usain Bolt Wanted to Play Cricket. This is an excerpt from Usain’s new film “The Fastest Man Alive“. It is very interesting to think what this exceptional track athlete would do in other sports. The American mind wants him to be a wide out for our favorite NFL team, but Usain would probably still [...]

Blake aims to extend run of success against Bolt

When Yohan Blake sprinted to the most recent major 100-meter title, at last year's world championships, Usain Bolt was banished from the starting blocks because of a false start. When Blake beat the world-record holder in the 100 and 200 at the Jamaican trials for the London Olympics, Bolt attributed poor-as-can-be starts in both sprints to hamstring problems connected to a...

Olympic flame causes smug warning

You don't just turn off the Olympic flame as if it's your kitchen light and you're going to bed. It's supposed to be eternal, like the Olympic spirit. Sure, sometimes through history, the wind has blown it out while someone was running with the torch or something. There have been little mix-ups. But you look past them as accidents, impressed by the real effort to...
