Back in 2012, the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, competed in the 100-meter race at the Diamond League meet in Oslo, Norway. No surprise when it came to the result of the race as Bolt smoked the competition, posting an impressive time of 9.79 seconds. However, after the race a flower girl came on to the track to meet Bolt and present him with a victory bouquet. Sounds nice right?
Unfortunately, the flower girl underestimated just how much space Bolt needed to slow down and he ended up crashing into her, nearly annihilating the young girls hopes and dreams, and the idea of ever use flower girls again. Bolt however was quick enough to see the girl at the last second and break their fall, saving her from a undoubtedly brutal collision.
Many people are wondering what’s next for Bolt as he’s seemingly achieved all he can as a Olympic sprinter. Some have floated the idea around of Bolt joining the NFL as either a kick returner or wide receiver, which would certainly be interesting, but his new sponsor, Puma, may have some problems with it.
