Usain Bolt Loses to Gay
That's United States sprinter Tyson Gay.
Usain Bolt, the world's fastest human being, lost in the 100m today at the DN Galan meet in Stockholm. Gay won the race with a time of 9.84 seconds. The appropriately named Bolt finished with a time of 9.97 seconds.
It's not the Olympics, so it isn't the end of the world for Bolt, but much like the American's sudden fascination with World Cup soccer when their team started winning, it gives us all a chance to shout "USA!" at every Jamaican (and/or Red Stripe beer drinker).
Added bonus, we get to have some "Gay pride". (Pause)
