The following picture is absolutely amazing.


Over the weekend, Usain Bolt set a world record in the 100 meter dash as a lightening bolt flashed across the sky as he crossed the finish line.

This amazing picture got me thinking, what if other athletes with nouns for names had a similar experience:

Tiger Woods in the woods:

Blake Griffin with a griffin:

Misty May-Treanor in the mist:

Tom Brady hanging out with the bradys:

Just saying.

Are you a Usain Bolt fan?

Did you know Prince Harry has a horse named Usain Colt?

And by the way- how’s your week going? We made it to Wednesday! Woo!

  4. Oh man, now that first picture is epic… and the other ones aren’t half bad either 😉 I was unaware of the fact that Prince Harry has a horse named Usain Colt, and aside from a semi-wonky stomach, my week is going quite well so far, thank ya 😀

  6. That pic with Usain Bolt is seriously SO amazing! I mean…the timing was certainly incredible!

    Ok, so I’m probably going to embarrass myself, but I never heard of Usain Bolt until I read your post. I don’t really follow that kind of stuff.

  8. Ahhh!! Tiger Woods in the woods with a tiger! That’s the best one!!! Or the Brady Bunch… I miss that show a lot (and all the lame a$$ movies). :) I, shamefully, as a runner, don’t really know much about Usain Bolt… don’t hate!

  9. I’m. Dying. I think I’ve said this before, but you have awesome Photoshop skills…ever think of becoming a professional Photoshopper? 😉 That first picture is AWESOME, though. Like…that’s just way too cool. My week’s going pretty fantastic, thanks. 😉 My quads are sore as h-e-double-hockey-sticks from the fake speed work I did today, but thankfully it didn’t affect the real speed work I did today…except now they’re even more sore. Oops.

  10. Tom Brady with the Brady’s… very clever! Please don’t think I’m crazy, but I have a celebrity crush on T. Woods. Yes Yes, I know he cheats, but theres just something about him that makes me go yumm!!!

  11. Thank you for that bit of Prince Harry trivia. For some reason, I find him super sexy (the basically unlimited amount of money might have something to do with that), so I love knowing facts about him. It helps add a little color to my daydreams.

  13. Bahahaha…I love the mist! Classic.

    That picture is incredible. Legendary even. I ashamed to admit I didn’t know who Usain Bolt was until now.

  15. I love that photo! I wonder if it’s true that names really can affect who you’ll be?! Lots of people call me Abs…I better get working on them!
    We cancelled our TV so I haven’t been able to watch any track. At least I’m catching the highlights online!

  16. I hadn’t seen that picture, that is insane! That picture looks like the beginning of a Hercules legend or something. And the Tiger-in-the-Woods thing – made me giggle.

  17. Bolt’s picture is the perfect picture. Wow, it’s kind of creepy. Plus, I never saw the rest of the pictures before, either. Did you find them in a magazine? ;P

    I did not know Prince Harry even had a horse with a name… I do not follow British things too often. Lol Happy Hump Day!

  18. I don’t know anything about anything about anything. I don’t have cable and I don’t read any news anywhere, even gossip stuff. I rely on you guys to give me my news updates, haha. OF COURSE that picture got you thinking of the following possibilities. Amazing. Aca-amazing. That really is the coolest picture though.

  19. Haha! Thank you for putting a smile in my day! I needed it after writing about depression!!!

  20. First time seeing that picture of Bolt and I am amazed- what an insane (and fitting) capture! I just sent it to my friend for inspiration as she’s running her first half marathon soon! Although I don’t follow Bolt regularly and keep up with his events, I am always in awe when I read about his success- SUCH an inspiration!

  21. It’s not normal for lightening bolts to flash across the sky as you end your incredibly fast, almost Olympic worthy runs? Funny – I thought that happened to everyone! Happy Wednesday! recently posted…Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

  22. Great work with the pictures. I, like most of the world, am a fan of Bolt. He is a very likable figure in the sports world. I think it is wonderful that a foreign athlete has captured the imagination of the United States sports audience.

  24. Your photoshopping skills are off the hook! But my computer at work won’t load the Usain Bolt picture, so that’s lame. I’ll have to google it later.

  25. Oh no! you must google it when you get home, its one of those once-in-a-million-years type pictures!

  26. When Usain bolt toured Australia after his Olympic glory, I saw him at one of our major shopping centres and tried to be sneaky and take out my iphone to get a photo before being apprehended by a plain clothed body guard lol! Love your art skills- modern day Picasso right here 😉 And I’m surprised the Queen let Prince Harry name his horse that!
