Usain Bolt wins Olympic Gold

Olympic gold medal winner, Usain Bolt, is considered to be the fastest man in the world.  A year ago Bolt, who stands 6-foot-5, destroyed the field in both the 100 and 200 meter sprints at the Olympic Games in Beijing, China.

   Bolt, who represents Jamaica, has become a national hero and is often stopped as he walks down the streets in his homeland.

   Bolt will face the U.S. champ, Tyson Gay, next week at the world championships in Berlin in what many consider a showdown.
