Bolt talks tough ahead of London GP

LONDON, England (AFP) – Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt plans to send a message to arch rival Tyson Gay by breaking the world 100m record in the London Grand Prix on Friday.

BOLT… I’ve never backed down from any challenge

Bolt, who won gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay in record times at the Beijing Olympics last year, is determined to use the Crystal Palace event to crush the morale of his main rival for gold at next month’s World Athletics Championships in Berlin.

The 22-year-old is slowly returning to peak form after posting 19.59sec for the 200m in Lausanne earlier this month and clocking a time of 9.79sec over 100m in cold, rainy conditions in Paris on Friday.

Despite Bolt’s impressive times, Gay still believes he has the beating of the Jamaican. But Bolt insists there is no-one in the sport who scares him and he will prove the point in south London this weekend.

“I’m not running scared. I’m not scared of anyone – I’ve never backed down from any challenge,” Bolt said at a press conference yesterday.

Tuesday July 21st @ Kress 6608 Hollywood Blvd. 90028

Rock Jamaica is proud to have Dappa Yute performing this Tuesday on the roof top of Kress in Hollywood. Our goal has always been to help upcoming artists who posses talent and a serious work ethic to make it on their own so it was an easy decision to give Dappa the opportunity to perform. We were very impressed with the new single ‘Feel the Vibe’ and especially the music video which is better than a lot of big named artists videos that are currently in rotation on television. Dappa has a very good opportunity right now to get noticed with Sean Paul dropping his new album and Damian Marley touring with Nas on the ‘Rock the Bells’ tour. People are going to be hearing a lot more dancehall this summer due to Damian and Sean being back on the scene so we thought it was good time to let an undiscovered artist take the stage at Rock Jamaica. Rock Jamaica’s last performances saw reggae legend Junior Reid and hip hop icon Chali 2NA of Jurassic 5 take the roof top by storm so all eyes will be on Dappa to see how he can move the crowd this Tuesday on the roof. Check out Dappa Yute’s new music video below and his brief bio. Continue reading

OLY-2008-ATHLETICS-100M

SAINT-DENIS, France (AP):World record-holder Usain Bolt easily won the 100 metres at the Areva Meeting outside Paris yesterday but just missed out on Tyson Gay’s season-best time.
