Jamaica’s bolt wins gold on the eve of its 50th Anniversary

The world’s fastest man Usain Bolt wins on the very eve of Jamaica’s 50th Anniversary of Independence from Great Britain. Seemed very fitting for Bolt to not just win the men’s 100 meters but for his running partner to Yohan “beast” Blake to come second for silver. It could only have gotten better if Asafa Powell had gotten bronze.

Every Jamaican I know must have been watching that race and must have been ever-so proud of Bolt and Blake.

The party started early… 50 years!
