J’accuse had a series of posts entitled “When the Gods Come Down to Play”. We have featured the Selecao, we have featured Juventus. This though is a deity apart. Barring any nasty surprises from the drug testing department, this Showloving Giant from Jamaica has stolen the show. The eighth man to win both the 100m and the 200m sprints at the Olympics. The first to break both World Records at the same time.
The 200m final was breathtaking. The gap between Usain and the rest said it all. He is more than entitled to yell “I am number One” into the camera at the end of such a performance. That too is the beauty of Olympic Sports.
