Just watching Bolt.

What an awe inspiring young man. What I admire is that he stayed true to his roots. No going off to somewhere with state of the art training facilities, but he did it all with his Jamaican coach and Jamaican facilities.

I hope he enjoys his well earned retirement.

Hear hear! He seems to be a good role model for all youngsters - hard work and determination can pay off.

Poor economically, but rich in talent, hard work and charm.
