Usain Bolts Independent Film: . Here are all 12 parts to the short film that Usain put together to gain even more coverage for his 2012 Olympic quest to become a legend. Most people put these videos out after the Olympics, but Usain is not “Most people”. My favorite part, that I also have in [...]

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...

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...

Usain Bolt's world beyond reality

Usain Bolt is traveling with an entourage, a bubble, basically, to protect him from the swarms of fanatics at the Olympics ... in the athletes village. That's right, the athletes village. Even other Olympians can't help themselves when they see him. They fall into a frenzy. Novak Djokovic was asked about being swarmed in the village, and he laughed and said that he's...

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 [...]

Some other things to watch for at Olympic track

There's little doubt that Jamaica's Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake will get plenty of attention at the London Games, where the athletics - aka track and field - competition gets started Friday. Some other story lines to watch for over the next 10 days at 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium: LOLO JONES When the women's 100-meter hurdle heats get going Monday, expect to see plenty...

Men's 100 starts with Bolt, Blake ... and Gatlin

All anyone's talking about ahead of the men's 100 meters is the showdown between Olympic champion Usain Bolt and world champion Yohan Blake, a pair of Jamaicans who train together. As the premier track and field event of the London Games gets started with opening heats Saturday, it seems everyone has an opinion about who's going to win - and the answers tend to be Bolt...

Bolt, Blake could seize London Olympics spotlight

By the time Usain Bolt's showboating, record-breaking, gold-gobbling act on the track got revved up at the Beijing Games four years ago, Michael Phelps already was firmly established as The Star - capital T, capital S - of those Olympics. Nothing anyone did - even Bolt's unprecedented sweep of the 100, 200 and 4x100-meter relay with best-in-history times - could possibly...

The breakout sport of the 2012 Olympics is...

One of my favorite parts of the Olympic viewing experience is finding a niche sport that is fun to watch and explodes in popularity.  Sure, it's one thing to watch megastars like Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, Roger Federer or the USA basketball team.  It's another thing to watch NBC's carefully manufactured primetime coverage around the same few sports every quadrennium...
