Day 515 { Jamaica 21 - Bolt New World Record } Sunday, August 16, 2009


Day 515 { Jamaica 21 - Bolt New World Record }

Went to church today and my good friend was preaching....

After church, I watched the 100 M Finals with my Family and a family friend.... And oooh the noise that was in the house... When Bolt broke the world record to 9.58 in first place... and Powell got the bronze medal in 9.84....

I also saw this video below which I thought was absolutely hilarious, however, if you are offended by expletives, then don't bother watching it...(And its not that Hitler video that has been passing around on facebook).

If the average Japanese person see this, they will begin to ask all Jamaicans in Japan if we are fast runners as well....

Can you believe that Jamaica as a little island accomplished this feat??? I don't know about others but I honestly feel proud being a Jamaican after watching that race... The only countries with athletes to ever break the 100M World Record are:

1) USA
2) Canada
3) JAMAICA!!!!!!

You can't even compare Jamaica with those 2 gigantic countries in any way.....

The guy on the picture below is probably still in shock at Bolt's 9.58

I didn't realise that about the 100m record Dave - that's very interesting. Is basically US and Jamaica cause Canada do it once - lol

With Jamaica though, is only 2 persons - Asafa and Bolt - lol. At least the US have more people breaking it BUT that would be a matter of their size compared to ours.

Because Donovan Bailey was a Jamaican who migrated (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donovan_Bailey), and I not goin count Maurice Green cuz he was a dope-fiend.
