After crushing the competition at the London Olympics and pretty much jogging to a world record, Usain Bolt got his Muhammad Ali on and dropped eleven carefully placed word together in a single breathe that is sure to get everybody talking about the fastest man in the world.
“I’m now a legend. I’m also the greatest athlete to live,” Bolt said humbly to the media after blitzing the competition in the 200 meter race. He also gave props to Michael Johnson after his historic Olympic run. “I am in the same category as Michael Johnson. I’m honored,” said Bolt. “It’s all about Michael Johnson for me.”
While Bolt definitely deserves all of the props in the world and he might be high of that drug called success, is he the greatest athlete to live? Greater than Michael Jordan? Muhammad Ali? Is he even the greatest athlete in this Olympics with the half man/half dolphin Michael Phelps down in London? He’s not short on confidence, we know that much. Bolt has recently flirted with the idea of trying out for the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.
