Usain Bolt £20,000 spike stolen


The world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, yesterday took to popular online social networking website Twitter to express his sheer disappointment regarding the theft of a prized pair of Puma track shoes in the town of Croydon in London, England, recently.

After setting a new 100 metre world record in 2009, Bolt reportedly signed the spikes which were later framed with an accompanying photograph for display. The pair of spikes was reportedly worth approximately £20,000.

According to Scotland Yard, the items were taken from a warehouse located on Gloucester Road in Croydon, London, England, between the dates of April 26-28.

Seemingly disappointed, Bolt called on the robbers to return the shoes, tweeting: “I know u love me … but please why u had to go stealing that signed Usain Bolt spikes in Croydon, England, … I know u going to return it. Right?”

Additionally, the track star tweeted: “Breaking News … All you had to do was just ask me for one … No need to go stealing the ppl things..Come on now..” with an attached photograph of a newspaper article made about the stolen pair.

Meanwhile, British officials are urging persons with information leading to the whereabouts of the missing spikes to contact them.

Recently I had a conversation with Sameer Verma of San Francisco State University about an innovative venture he’s involved with — the One Laptop per Child project. Verma, an open source software (OSS) activist, was invited by Professor Evan Duggan, Executive Director of the Mona School of Business and new Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of the West Indies, Mona, whom he went to school with, to spearhead the OLPC project in Jamaica. According to the OLPC Jamaica website:

OLPC Jamaica is a general interest group for the One Laptop per Child initiatives in Jamaica. The group started at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona Campus, Jamaica on 5th September, 2008. Compelled by the belief that the OLPC has considerable potential for enhancing the efficient delivery, and improved Pedagogy in early childhood education in Jamaica, OLPC Jamaica intends to foster interest, generate ideas…

  • Deputy commish says Olympic champion could face criminal charges after probe into crash

Deputy Commissioner of Police Glenmore Hinds yesterday said three-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt will be criminally charged if investigations suggest that he is at fault following yesterday’s motor vehicle accident in Half-Way Tree, St Andrew.

The track and field star slammed his car into the guard rails in the vicinity of the Half-Way Tree Transport Centre just after 5 a.m. Sunday morning.

“No one is above the law and justice will be served with equity and thorough investigations will be undertaken just the same,” Hinds asserted when asked to comment on the incident yesterday.

“We operate a legal regime here in Jamaica. All persons who are found guilty before the courts will go through the same process, and will be charged accordingly. The only exception is diplomats in a state that is accredited. Every person in Jamaica is subject to the law. The matter will be investigated and there will be no escape,” he asserted.

According to Bolt’s publicist, Carole Beckford, the athlete was involved in a minor accident on his way from a party Sunday morning. She shared, however, that there were no injuries and Bolt is at home resting.

At press time yesterday, the police had not released a report on the crash.

“There was an accident this morning involving Usain Bolt. Persons involved in crashes are supposed to make a report to the police within 24 hours and Mr Bolt has not done so. We are expecting by the latest tomorrow morning there will be official word,” Special Corporal Aaron Gabriel of the Constabulary Communication Network told The Gleaneryesterday evening.

In the meantime, Beckford said fellow sprint star Asafa Powell was at the scene of the accident. She said his vehicle was not involved.

Bolt and Powell had just returned to Jamaica after competing at the Diamond League meet in Norway last Thursday.

It is Bolt’s second crash in three years. In April 2009, Bolt, the triple Olympic gold medallist, walked away with minor bruises after his BMW M3 overturned on Highway 2000.

Gun salute gets cop in trouble – News – Jamaica Star – March 31, 2012.This has really bought to the attention of how far the Jamaica Police force has come,as there were time within my service where a lot of us would have gone un-notice when discharging a firearm in celebration of some kind.

I must then say congratulation to the Commissioner and his team  for the effort in bringing such stupid act of display under control,continue to keep up the good work.
