World’s Fastest Man Apologizes to Motherland for Remarks

Olympian sensation Usain Bolt has recently made headlines after he admitted to trying Marijuana as a kid in Jamaica.  Bolt went on to say that he’s never used any kind of illegal substance since; adding, that as a professional athlete, he disapproves of any such lifestyle.  To date, no body has questioned Usain Bolt on any possible implications of any kind of performance enhancing drug use, after he set the world record in the 100 meters of 9.69 seconds; most likely, because Bolt agreed to, and openly passed, all required drug screenings by the Olympics.

However, the recent remark that landed Bolt back into the spotlight was a comment he made to a German reporter about the commonality of marijuana use in Jamaica.  Bolt said, “When you’re a child in Jamaica, you learn how to roll a joint.”  After the fact, Usain Bolt realized how his words could have been taken negatively and issued a statement, in which he said “I want to apologize to the Jamaican people if at anytime it may have come across that all young people roll a joint.”  Still, I’m sure that most Jamaicans are still more enthralled by the three gold medals that 22-year-old, Usain Bolt, brought to his motherland at last year’s Beijing Games, as well as the potential half-dozen others that Bolt is sure to win in future Olympic Games.
