Default we need more people like Usain Bolt in this world.

He might be my new favorite athlete. It's nice to see people who are honest when they are awesome.

Claiming he slowed down at the end of the 200m yesterday so he didn't make the record to hard for others to beat.

Called himself a living legend

Said he was the best athlete ever.

And then after shattering Carl Lewis' record, he talks shit about the guy!

He only talked shit about Carl Lewis, because Carl Lewis has repeatedly made PED alligations against Bolt, originally questioning his WR 100m run a few years ago. Maybe all these old athletes/celebs should mind their own business and quit trying to grab the spotlight since their time of fame is over.

I agree He is a class act,

Here is a Video on him stopping an interview to respect an American Gold Metal Winner and the National Anthem. Most of these vids have been removed from the web but I still found it:

I saw that on the news, I Don't know what to think of the guy yet, but that was very respectful especially since an American was on the podium.

WOW, has he actually gotten any gigs at that price? or just what he's throwing out there trying to get rich?

Yes, the promoters pay him that because he pretty much guarantees a sell out at any event he attends. I guess he does like 10 events per year. He also has a contract pending with Puma.
