from RunBlogRun - This morning, Ricky Simms, manager of Usain Bolt, was kind enough to send us this video from Usain. With Usain announcing that he would be running in the adidas GP in NYC, there have been a plethora of questions! Usain sent this from his cell phone.

Usain is, as usual, having fun with the media spectacle, and it is one of the reasons his young fans worship him! Special thanks to Usain Bolt and Ricky Simms, I have added the questions asked below:

Here were the questions asked to Usain Bolt:

1) It has been announced that you will run in the IAAF Diamond League in New York - are you looking forward to it?


2) You will run your first race on Feb 13th in the Camperdown Classic - what event?


3) What is your next event after that?


4) What have you been up to since Christmas? You have been quiet?


5) What do you think of Man United beating Arsenal 3-0 on Sunday?


6) What video games are you playing at the moment?


7) I hear you bought a new car - what is it?
