*Jamaican hearthob and of course Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is being hated on by his American rival Tyson Gay. Well according to Bolt, the US track star “probably just hates my guts” because Bolt won both the 100 and 200-meter titles at the 2008 Olympics in world-record times, and helped Jamaica win gold and set another world record in the 4×100-meter relay. A year later, he again set world records in the 100 and 200 at the world championships in Berlin.
“I think Tyson sits at home and cusses me,” Bolt told BBC radio on Wednesday. “He just really gets upset because every time he runs fast, I run faster than he does. At the world championship he ran 9.71 and that’s the fastest a US athlete has ever run and he was still cussing. So deep down I think he probably just hates my guts.”
These things may be true, but the young agile Bolt did his first race in two years against Gay, who beat him Stockholm in a 100-meter race.
“It’s no stress. This year is not a championship year, this is my year off I would say, so it is no problem,” Bolt said. “I am always ready, prepared and on top of my game (at the championships).”
