Who knows how it feels to beat Usain Bolt in an Olympic race? T&T's Rondel Sorrillo does

How can Usain Bolt be beaten and stopped from carving an even heftier slice of Olympic history?

How can he be prevented from crossing the line first in his signature event, the 200 metres?

The question is almost laughable, as miraculous perhaps as turning water into wine or getting politicians to admit they are wrong. How to beat Bolt at the Olympics? Who knows?

Why Shaunae Miller's dive across the finish line was perfectly legal

It wasn't Shaunae Miller's hands across the line that won the gold. It was the torso.

Miller's desperate dive in the final steps of the 400 meters on Monday night beat Allyson Felix by a dramatic seven one hundredths of a second, 49.44 to 49.51.

The reaction was immediate, and intense. After all, Miller of the Bahamas had denied gold to one of the USA's most beloved sprinters, who even so would become the most decorated American female track and field Olympian, with seven total medals.
