*Desperation in love can make you do some crazy sh*t…out loud.
Take Usain Bolt, undeniably the fastest man in the world, an Olympic gold medalist, is now in a race to win the heart of singer, Rihanna. Seriously, old boy broke it down to TMZ the other day — after seeing a TWERK video the “Pour It Up” singer posted, saying her moves remind him of home.
Ah Jamaica, wait, really?
Yep! And Bolt is covering every available medium to get the woman’s attention. Even Twitter, where he posted the following message.
And of course he took a moment to profess his love via TMZ (check out the video).
*Antonio Pettigrew who was stripped of a gold medal he won as a sprinter at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney was found dead on Tuesday. He was 42 years old.
His body was found in his car in Chatham County, North Carolina, according to the AP.
At the time of his death, Pettigrew worked as a track assistant at the University of North Carolina, the Charlotte Observer reports.
UNC athletic director Dick Baddour issued the following statement:
“Although we are still learning the circumstances, we are deeply saddened to learn of Antonio’s death. I was particularly impressed with the relationships he established with his student-athletes and the pride he took in representing the University of North Carolina. Our deepest condolences go out to Antonio’s family, particularly his wife and son.”
Pettigrew won an Olympic gold medal in the 4×400 relay in 2000, but he was later stripped of the award after admitting to using performance-enhancing drugs.
