Do The Pose, Lightning Bolt!

Jamaican star Usain Bolt is looking forward to this year’s IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, where he once again figures to be the most electrifying competitor in international athletics.

The world record holder makes headlines not just for his astonishing speed, but also for his playful personality.  He loves the nickname of “Lightning Bolt.”  At the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, where Bolt won three gold medals, set new world records at 100 meters and 200 meters, and was a member of a world record-setting Jamaican 4 x 100-meter relay team, he told a packed news conference:  “I’m Lightning Bolt.  I’m not Flash Gordon or anybody.  My name is Lightning Bolt.”

I’m looking forward to seeing the Lightning Bolt do his special Lightning Bolt pose in South Korea, maybe as much as the children in this video.  Do the pose, Lightning Bolt!
