Images Newsletter Blog is reporting that the three time Olympic champion and the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt might be visiting Dominica during the 12th Annual Dominica World Creole Music Festival. According to VIP Connected Entertainment CEO Lexy Brooks, an invitation was extended by the Dominica Tourism Authority for Bolt to be a special guest of the Hon. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit during this year’s festival which runs from October 31 to November 2nd 2008.

If Usain do decide to visit Dominica, he will be honored at the Windsor Park Stadium for his achievements at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, also on his itinerary is to visit the Fresh Water Lake.

With a star-stunned lineup already scheduled for this year’s Creole festival (Sean Paul, Machel Montano, Nasio Fontaine, D’jakout – just to name a few), if Bolt does accept the invitation – his presents will undoubtedly bring much media attention from all around the Caribbean our nature island, and what better way for us to celebrate 30 years of independence and 12th Annual Creole Music festival.

In the recently concluded Olympic Games in Beijing, the United States Sprint relay teams appeared to be struck by a lightning storm or perhaps it was a single Bolt that made them so nervous that they found it difficult to come out of the paralysis. Could it been Usain Bolt and his two world record which nobody will be breaking anything soon?

It’s funny how some of the sports editors got all creative when headlining Bolt total domination.

“Bolt flashes to double gold”

“Lightning Bolt Strikes Twice!”

If I had the opportunity to headline one I would maybe suggested something like “Bolt Screwed US hopes for a Gold” but they probably would not have used that one anyway. 🙂

The reality was so shocking to those who consider themselves the best in the world that I wouldn’t be surprised if many American heads were to roll and the face of athletics change forever in the US. I hope the dope testers will be on guard because some athletes might take it seriously when they would have recalled the words of Malcolm X “by any means necessary.” Who knows, maybe what they have jailed the likes of Marion Jones for, will seem like Childs play in times to come as some try to recapture top position.

I too was amazed by the 21-year-old Bolt, even though I can’t say that I found anything impressive about his dancing following his record breaking victories, but when you have done such great work as a minority – the critics will have their say.

Meanwhile, the Jamaican women did their bit to keep the heads of the already breathless US sprinters under the water by dominating their rivals to the maximum. I believe it’s only a matter of time before some of the other countries in the Caribbean get to show their talent in various other disciplines and get the confidence to believe they can really come up against those who say they are the biggest and the best and still come out ahead. We have to do something quickly to make the people of this country believe that they indeed can be among the best in the world.

If it happens tomorrow, it would not have come soon enough as there are some people in the Caribbean that still find they are being treated as second-class citizens in their own little part of the world.

If you do not think this statement holds anything serious then just ask the media practitioners in Antigua, where they rank when it comes to police offering information to them as opposed to their British counterparts in relation to the recent killings of a British couple.The Antiguan Police Commissioner has got to show he has got more nuts than he has fruit and tell these English guys to cool down because they’re in his jurisdiction – but that’s a entire different story.

Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to Congratulate Usain Bolt, the 2008 Olympic Games 100m and 200m Champion.

The Greatest Olympic Opening Show Ever


Did you guys had the opportunity to watch the Olympics opening Ceremonies in Beijing? Mann!!! That’s the most amazing opening of a ceremony, or opening of any event, that I have every seen! The Chinese’s definitely went all out for their Olympic coming out party. China have set the bar so high that when it is the for Vancouver time to host the games in 2010 it will look like a little side show. Then again, China’s budget for the summer games is somewhere close to $45 billion compared to $1.6 billion for Vancouver’s winter games.

If you haven’t watched the opening ceremonies, there should be an encore tonight by most of the major networks. It’s definitely worth watching. Here are some photos of the opening Ceremonies that was provided by Getty Images.
