“Delano Williams” Nearly Breaks a Usain Bolt Junior Record

Delano Williams Delano Williams Nearly Breaks a Usain Bolt Junior Record

It seems like forever since Great Britain had a world-class sprinter, but maybe Delano Williams, who’s actually from the Turks and Caicos Islands, will be the next man to impress after such a long drought, nearly breaking a 10-year old record set by Usain Bolt at ISSA Boys and Girls Championships in Jamaica.

When Bolt was 16, he ran a 20.25 in the 200 meters, one second (and a bit more) slower than his record at that distance, but it is still the event’s record for 200 meters. Williams ran a 20.27, taking home the gold at the Caribbean junior competition. Williams also won the 100 meters with a time of 10.28, and added gold in the 4×400 meters.

I was really, really excited when I got the passport. I felt, ‘I’m a British citizen now’. In order for me to compete at the Olympics I must go under the British because we are under British rule. wouldn’t want to stop my dream of going to the Olympics so they have made a decision to let me go and represent the UK at the Olympics. It will be a privilege to represent Great Britain at the Olympics.

In order to run in the Olympics, Williams needs a British passport, because they are not recognized by the International Olympic Committee. He received his British passport 11 months ago, but finished fifth at the UK Olympics Trials for 200 meters, and missed out on the London games.

Williams subsequently claimed 200 meters gold at last year’s World Junior Championships, two days after British sprinter Adam Gemili had claimed the 100 meters crown in impressive fashion.

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn make it Facebook official

Facebook.comIf there is one thing Tiger Woods is great at, it’s golf. If there is one other thing, it’s keeping his private life extremely private.

So this announcement on Tiger’s Facebook page was pretty surprising. On Monday, Woods posted four pictures of himself and Lindsey Vonn, with the following message.

This season has been great so far and I’m happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that’s happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes.

Vonn, who won a gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics, has been rumored to be hanging with Tiger over the past few months (even borrowing his jet at one point), but this is first official announcement that the two are actually an item.

Here’s Vonn’s statement on the relationship:

I guess it wasn’t a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy. I don’t plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends. Thank you for understanding and your continued support! xo LV

Tiger had been spotted with his ex-wife (who is dating someone herself), but that looks to be have been just been a day out with the kids and nothing more.

Rory McIlroy starts dating a famous tennis player and now Tiger snags an Olympian. I bet that would be one competitive game of Boggle if the four ever did a game night.
