  • Usain Bolt

    Going to be a big day today, I’m excited to see Bolt and the soccer final match.

    Huge ups to Canada finally medalling in a team sport during the Summer Games.

    Go Usain, get that second gold medal. This guy is so cool!!

  • Julie

    Why thank you ‘Usain’ for the congrats to Canada and our womens soccer medal!

    And I just watched you live on TV in Canada. Extremely entertaining. Sorry your fellow Americans have to wait until tonight…probably verrrry late, until NBC lets them see you.

  • Julie

    Worded that wrong – didn’t mean to make it sound like Usain was American (not that there’s anything wrong with that!)
    I meant to say “sorry your American friends will have to wait…” Aggh.
