Usain Bolt Snapchat Username & Snapcode

Usain Bolt is widely known as the fastest man in the world. He’s only thirty years old, and he has absolutely dominated sprinting. This eight time Olympic gold medalist holds a couple of different world records, and even though he plans on retiring after the 2017 World Championships, he has still gifted the world with so much during his time in sprinting. He’s accumulated a massive following, and he’s idolized by a lot of other athletes. Usain is a pretty nice guy, too, and he’s known to engage with these fans occasionally across different social networking platforms, including Snapchat and Twitter.

Usain Bolt’s Early Life and Career

Usain Bolt was born in August of 1986 in Trelawny, Jamaica. His parents ran the local grocery store, and he spent a lot of his youth playing sports like cricket and football. He showed that a certain athletic gift at a young age, and when he was just twelve years old he was known as his school’s fastest runner. He attended high school at William Knibb Memorial High School, where he intended on focusing on other sports. However, his coaches were amazed by his raw talent in sprinting, and they encouraged him to participate in track and field events. Bolt took to it very quickly, and he won his first annual high school championships medal just in 2001.

Bolt’s performances during these early competitions were nothing short of impressive, especially considering his age. However, he caught a lot of flak from his coaches and from his community due to his mischievous nature. Although he was very serious about athletics, he wasn’t generally a very serious person, and he got in trouble for some of the practical jokes that he tended to pull. Usain may not have been the most mature during this time, but he was still one of the most fast. During the 2002 World Junior Championships, he ended up wining the 200 m gold medal, which would mark a turning point in his career. It became clear that he had serious talent.

Usain Bolt’s Olympic Accomplishments

Usain Bolt officially began his Olympic career in the 2008 Beijing Summer Games, and he dominated right off the bat. He took home two gold medals in Beijing. Bolt dominated the 100 meter sprint, winning with a world record time of 9.69 seconds. (It’s likely that he probably could have had an even shorter time if he didn’t showboat a little bit before crossing the finish line.) Usain also decisively won the 200 meter sprint, setting a world record with 19.30 seconds. A lot of the times, an athlete will dominate during the Olympics one time, but the next time, they’ll struggle a little bit. Usain returned during the 2010 London Summer Games, and he still emerged victorious. He won three gold medals for Jamaica, in the 100 meter sprint, the 200 meter sprint, and the 4 x 100 meter relay. Usain won the 100 meter sprint in 9.63 seconds, which was an improvement on his previous time. He won the 200 meter sprint a little slower, though, with 19.32 seconds.

Since Usain Bolt plans on retiring after the 2017 World Championships, it’s likely that the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro was his final Olympic outing, and he made it count. Bolt earned three gold medals, again in 100 meter sprint, 200 meter sprint, and the 4 x 100 meter relay. He had a much slower 100 meter time than usual, with 9.81 seconds. His 200 meter time was also a bit slower, with 19.78 seconds. To a lot of people, this was evidence that it probably was a good idea for Usain to retire. He had already accomplished a lot, and there was no reason for him to humiliate himself by having his play decline due to age. Either way, the 2016 games allowed Bolt to maintain his streak of gold medals at the Olympics. Even though he only participate in 3 Olympics, it’s safe to say that he will remain a significant part of Olympic history in the years to come.

Blake plays down groin injury fears

Jamaican Yohan Blake, the 2012 Olympic 100 and 200 metres silver medallist, is downplaying the seriousness of a groin problem which ruled him out of Sunday's 100m at the Diamond League meeting in Rabat, Morocco.

"It is not an injury, I felt some discomfort in the groin area," Blake told Reuters from the North African country on Saturday.

"With three weeks to go to the World Championships I am being cautious," added the youngest world 100m champion from 2011.

Blake, who posted 9.90 and 19.97 seconds to win the sprint double at Jamaica's national trials last month in Usain Bolt's absence, is among the medal contenders for the sprint events in London.

The second fastest man of all time, with 9.69 and 19.26 seconds respectively, is scheduled to get an assessment from German doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller Wolphart in Munich on Tuesday.

Jamaica enjoy double sprint success at World Under-18 Athletics Championships

Jamaica enjoyed double sprint success as the World Under-18 Athletics Championships continued at the Moi International Sports Centre in Nairobi today.

De'Jour Russell headlined Jamaica’s day, winning the men’s 110 metres hurdles in a Championship record time of 13.04sec.

He was followed across the line by Chinese Taipei’s Hao-hua Lu and Thomas Wanaverbecq of France, who completed the podium in times of 13.41 and 13.55 respectively.

Russell’s achievement came shortly after his compatriot Antonio Watson earned victory in the men’s 400m, triumphing in a personal best time of 46.59.

He was pushed closely by Daniel William of Guyana and Turks and Caicos’ Colby Jennings, who posted personal best times of 46.72 and 46.77.

Jennings would take bronze on a photo finish with Jamaica’s Anthony Cox, who matched his time of 46.77.

The top four athletes in the women’s 400m would also set personal bests, with the Czech Republic’s Barbora Malíková coming through to win gold in a time of 52.74.

Kenya’s Mary Moraa ended as the runner-up in front of a home crowd by clocking 53.31, while Brazil’s Giovanna Rosalia dos Santos edged out Bahamas Doneisha Anderson for bronze by crossing the line in 53.57.

The host nation would celebrate double gold on the third day of competition, with George Meitamei Managoi and Caren Chebet earning victories.

Managoi won the men’s 1,500m in a time of 3min 47.53, with Ethiopia’s Abebe Dessassa claiming silver in 3:48.64.

The podium was completed by Dessassa’s team-mate Belete Mekonen in 3:50.64.

Chebet emerged as the winner of the women’s 2,000m steeplechase, achieving an under-18 world leading time of 6:24.80.

Fellow Kenyan Mercy Chepkurui and Ethiopia’s Etalemahu Sintayehu completed the medal positions, having clocked times of 6:26.10 and 6:35.79 respectively.

There was success for Ukraine in field events, with Mykhaylo Kokhan winning the men’s hammer throw with a distance of 82.31 metres.

India’s Damneet Singh and Germany’s Raphael Winkelvoss earned podium places by throwing 74.20m and 71.78m respectively.

Yaroslava Mahucikh then triumphed in the women’s high jump, with the Ukrainian managing a clearance at 1.92m.

Poland’s Martyna Lewandowska ended as the runner-up with 1.82m, while Germany’s Lavinja Jurgens jumped 1.79m for bronze.

In response to security fears in Kenya in the build-up to the event, the country's Government has imposed extra cordons around the venue.

All vehicles travelling to the facility must undergo security checking more than 100m away from the stadium, while additional police officers are in attendance.

There are of concerns of escalating violence across Kenya prior to the country's Presidential elections in August, while the threat of terrorism also remains high.

Six countries - the United States, Australia, Britain, Switzerland, New Zealand and Canada - all withdrew prior to the event due to security fears.

I was close to quitting admits Kadeena Cox

KADEENA COX has revealed she did a U-turn on her decision to quit athletics at the last IPC world championships in 2015.

The 26-year-old became the first Briton in 32 years to win Paralympic titles in two different sports at the same Games in Rio last year.

But a year before, she had contemplated turning her back on ‘first love’ track and field as she struggled to accept her times were slower than before her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2014, when she was a promising non-disabled sprinter. ‘I went from being able to do one time to being a lot slower. Even though I was better in the world, I found it quite hard to deal with mentally,’ she said.

‘It was just before the 2015 world championships I was going to quit athletics and never go back. I was going to retire and become a full-time cyclist. Then I went out there [in Doha], performed well [winning two world titles] and remembered exactly why I love it. Having the combination of the cycling, that I’d never done before and had nothing to compare to, with athletics brought back the love for athletics.’

Cox begins her campaign in London tomorrow as she aims to win gold in the T38 200metres before making a defence of her 100m and 4x100m T35-38 relay crowns.

Ojie Edoburun sprints to European U23 100m title

European junior gold medallist claims under-23 title in Bydgoszcz, while Konrad Bukowiecki throws championship record for shot put gold

Britain’s Ojie Edoburun was among the winners on day two of the European Under-23 Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland, as he stormed to victory in the 100m.

Clocking 10.14 for the second-quickest wind-legal time of his career, the 21-year-old beat Slovakia’s Ján Volko (10.18) and Norway’s Jonathan Quarcoo (10.29) to add the under-23 title to the under-20 gold he claimed in Eskilstuna two years ago, despite not feeling in top shape.

“The race was okay,” he said. “My start wasn’t good again and my finish was not the best.

“I was feeling some pains. I was bit ill. I am just happy I came and won.”

Fellow Brit Reuben Arthur placed fifth with 10.39.

Ewa Swoboda also won 100m gold in Eskilstuna in 2015 and she too added the under-23 title to her haul, clocking 11.42 for a win on home soil. Britain’s Imani Lansiquot narrowly missed out on a medal as she clocked 11.58 to match the time of bronze medallist Sina Mayer of Germany.

Another athlete putting on a show for the home crowd was European indoor shot put champion Konrad Bukowiecki as he threw 21.59m to break the championship record.

He had earlier thrown 21.44m to improve the championship record he set himself in the qualifying round.

Britain’s Taylor Campbell was just 1cm off a medal in the hammer as he threw 70.59m in a competition won by Bence Halasz of Hungary with 73.30m.

Two years after winning the under-20 title, another athlete to also claim under-23 gold was Switzerland’s Caroline Agnou as she recorded a national record 6330 points in the heptathlon, with GB’s Katie Stainton seventh with 5836 points.

Turkey’s double European champion Yasemin Can broke the championship record with 31:39.80 to win the 10,000m title, with British trio Phoebe Law (33:40.75), Jenny Nesbitt (33:50.37) and Philippa Bowden (34:04.57) fourth, sixth and eighth respectively.

The day before, Spain’s Carlos Mayo had won the men’s 10,000m title in 29:28.06, with Britain’s Ellis Cross fifth in 29:53.64.

GB’s Jacob Fincham-Dukes (7.83m/+2.5) was fourth in a long jump final won by Ukraine’s Vladyslav Mazur with a European lead-equalling 8.04m (+1.9).

Meanwhile, over in Nairobi the third day of IAAF World Under-18 Championships saw the world under-18 triple jump record broken by Cuba’s Jordan Diaz with his 17.30m leap. Jamaica’s De’Jour Russell clocked a championship record 13.04 for 110m hurdles victory, while there was a Kenyan one-two in the girls’ 2000m steeplechase with Caren Chebet getting gold from Mercy Chepkurui, 6:24.80 to 6:26.10.

'I WILL NEVER FAIL' Mo Farah once again shrugs off questions over doping as he races home to win the 3,000m at the Anniversary Games

The 34-year-old four-time gold medallist has also revealed how he is sick of having to defend himself ahead of next month's World Championships

MO FARAH shrugged off the latest questions over doping to win his final race before he defends his two world titles back at the Olympic Stadium next month.

Farah clocked 7:35.15 to win the 3,000m at the Anniversary Games – well outside the British record of 7:32.62 he set in Birmingham last year.

But he said: “Everything is going alright. I’m ticking boxes. Grafting. The usual. The last five years has been the same routine.”

He has now never lost at race at the Olympic Stadium – the scene of his biggest moment at London 2012 – and he is determined to keep that record when he competes over the 10,000m and 5,000m titles back at the venue in less than a month.

They will be the final track races of his career before he steps up to the marathon later this year.

He said: This (stadium) is home. This is where my life has changed. This is where I made my name. This is where it went from normal to ‘I’m Mo’ overnight.

“When anyone asks ‘what memories do you have of London? – it’s not about Big Ben. Meeting The Queen obviously was a special thing in my life but second is this track.”

The double-double Olympic distance champion was one of a number of athletes flagged up on a suspicious list after a test in November 2015, according to documents made public by the Russian hacking group Fancy Bears last week.

A later document from April 2016 then put the British star, who plans to step up to the marathon event after London 2017, in the clear.

International athletics chief Seb Coe was also forced to apologise for the leak.

But Farah, whose controversial coach Alberto Salazar is still being investigated by USA anti-doping chiefs, said: “I’m sick of repeating myself.”

“I love what I do and I will never ever fail a drugs test. I work hard at what I do.
