Bolts in the news

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt bolted his way to 3 Olympic Gold medals in Rio this month.

As a world record holder in the 100m and 200m races, Bolt has taught Americans more about the metric system than schools.

Cheetahs. But just barely. Besides, we’re still awaiting their blood results.

Summer. Time flies. One minute you’re on the beach drinking beer, the next you’re at your desk... drinking beer.
