Editor: First, let me say congratulations to the Jamaicans on their 50th anniversary of independence and on the excellent performances of their athletes in the track competitions of 2012 Olympics.{{more}}

I have become interested in the phenomenon that is Usain Bolt and found a BBC documentary video that tells of his childhood, lifestyle and athletic history, including the 2011 World Championship where he false-started and was disqualified. Bolt does a lot of the narration and there are interviews with his parents, trainer and friends as well. Any person interested in watching the video can go to http://www.nowvideo.eu/video/185aa3bc951ce

It was quite an eye-opener. (If the video stops playing to buffer, click pause [ll] for about 60 seconds then click play again.)
