RIO 2016 Olympics: Usain Bolt wins the hearts of people around the world with his friendly and relaxed style 

UNFORTUNATE UPDATE, August 22, 2016: Usain Bolt may be the fastest man alive-- but his après Olympic behavior leaves much to be desired. As I have pointed out in my Olympic posts, Usain Bolt is a Roman Catholic who wears the medal of the Immaculate Conception (the Virgin Mary) around his neck and prays before each race. But based on his abhorrent behavior after the Olympic games, he definitely and desperately needs to pray for the intercession of the Mother of God. *- See reference below.

It was wonderful to watch this extraordinary runner during tonight’s 200 meter semi-finals, particularly as he reached the finish line smiling at his friend De Grasse from Canada, who was trying hard to catch up to Bolt.

Bolt has won the hearts of people around the world with his friendly and relaxed style.

I have been reading about Bolt’s family life and his Roman Catholic faith– which are very important to him. At the beginning of each race he looks towards Heaven and does the sign of the Cross. Bolt always wears the Miraculous Medal around his neck, as a testament to his faith in the Virgin Mary.

God bless Usain Bolt.

Someone has to say the truth…

RIO 2016 Olympics: Usain Bolt is a fitting name for this Jamaican thunderbolt of a man

The world’s fastest man has just won his third Gold Medal in the Men’s 100 meters. Bolt seems to keep his head down during the first few seconds of the race, then he looks up and takes off like a rocket.

I observed him do the sign of the cross and look towards the heavens. It also appears that he has a small medal of the Immaculate Conception (the Miraculous Medal) around his neck. With this kind of faith, Usain Bolt will keep running very, very fast– and will go very, very far.

Spectacular.

RIO 2016 Olympics: Italian Daniele Garozzo takes home the gold medal in fencing (men’s individual foil)

American fencer, Alexander Massialas, lost to Italian fencer Daniele Garozzo– whose speed, technique and precision proved to be a challenge that our great American fencer could not overcome. 

Massialas will surely be back in the 2020 Olympics.

Congratulations to Massialas for a great performance.

Congratulations Italy, for winning the Gold Medal in men’s individual foil.

Socialist Political Correctness at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Socialist Political Correctness at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

I’m not one to rely on social media, except for regular links to commentaries on my blog, which is where I prefer to cultivate my wide audience of readers in the USA and around the world. But given the fast pace nature of the Olympic Games, I have decided to post some of my reactions on Twitter, as events unfold. 

Here is my expression of support for TeamUSA, as well as some of my observations regarding the display of socialist political correctness at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games:

  1. Politics rule , so why not let athletes join . is a ISLAND PRISON w/57-yr. DICTATORSHIP!

  2. Hey Committee, STOP the LIES: is NOT .Chinese Taipei is a FARCE. Taiwan is a FREE NATION!

  3. rules . is NOT + farce (your $!).Just let athletes compete, for God’s sake!

  4. Shame on the Committee 4 changing to in order to appease the Beijing Commies. Chinese Taipei doesn’t exist!
