After his incredible feat in 200m, 400m races in 2012 Olympics, Usain Bolt may join Twenty20 cricket (video) in Australia
Usain Bolt is the man of the moment. He has won three gold medals repeating his Beijing Olympic feat in London amid outpouring of people’s affection towards him. He declared himself a legend after winning the 200m race. Since then he further strengthened his position by leading his Jamaican side to 400m gold.
So the man seems unbeatable. He took part in three races including the 100 meter, 200m and 400m and won all the races with great ease. Analysts suggest that he has an edge over other sprinters and no one can equal him at the speed he feels at ease. They also suggest that if there is any need, he can further improve him speed, increasing his dominance over the sport.
Meanwhile there are reports that the six Olympic gold medals winner Bolt is being offered a role not just in the soccer by Manchester United, but also by several cricketing teams including a local Australian team where Shane Warne is based now.
Shane Warne has retired from international cricket and now plays only Twent20, the shortest version of cricket. He has reportedly invited Jamaican sprinting genius to play for his team Melbourne Stars.
Earlier he had been asked to play soccer and join Manchester United, one of the top soccer clubs in the world. Meanwhile Usain too has shown his willingness for the game. “Twenty20, I love it! Just the fact that it is so exciting . It’s about going hard the whole time, not just about playing shots…It’s about being aggressive and I like and I like that style of batsman”, Bolt said.
Meanwhile Usain Bolt has become a major figure in judo. It is not very long when he started sprinting for short distance and the importance of a quick start is one of the things he’s still getting used to. His specialty throughout his running career has been the 200 meters, and that’s a distance for which the start isn’t as crucial. Over two hundred meters, you can make up for lost time. That’s not the case in the 100. He’s had to work to overcome some of his sloppy starting habits. For example, he has a tendency to brush his left toe along the ground during the explosive burst from the blocks, generating counterproductive friction. He’s gotten better, and usually manages to avoid doing that now, but he does it today, the front of his left shoe scuffing the track as he whips his leg forward to take his second stride. The shoe also happens to be untied, a sloppy mistake, no excuse.
Meanwhile Carl Lewis had caused anger among Bolt and his fans when he said that Jamaican sprinters’ success is because of doping techniques adopted by them. But a Bolt fan says it is nothing but a case of sour grape. “Bolt is 6’5 200 lbs. you can look at a guy juicing and know he is based simply on body type and what steroids does hormonally to your physique. Bolt isn’t even close to his physical potential from a power and growth standpoint….dude could get 215 and not look any different because of his bone structure and frame. He’s what you call a “planet person” because there aren’t many on the face of the earth like him physically speaking. You could tell Ben Johnson, Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, Jose Canseco were juicing. Heck, even Tim Montgomery, Marion Jones, and Ben Johnson all were easy to deem “suspect” because they were yoked up like zhyyyyt. That’s not close to Bolts body type….he’s lean as heck, broad shoulder and long limbed but far from jacked.”
