Weekend Watch: Jamaica Runs the Penn Relays

Words by Jesse Serwer—

2010 Penn Relays

Few days are capable of filling Jamaicans, and especially Jamaicans living in the U.S., with more pride than the Saturday of the Penn Relays. The annual track and field event, held at the University of Pennsylvania’s Franklin Field in Philadelphia since 1895 (yes, it’s been happening at the same place since 1895; this year’s edition is the 120th) has been taken over by Team Jamaica in recent years, offering the U.S. its first glimpse of Jamaica’s top runners including Usain Bolt.

If you haven’t been following Ninjaman’s epic return from a three-pronged precipice of crack addiction, irrelevance and a possible life sentence, well, you’re missing out on one of the best plotlines in dancehall. Since being freed from jail on murder charges last year, Ninja has once again become ubiquitous in JA, stealing the show at festivals like St. Mary A Mi Come From, playing uptown spots like Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records, hatching a plan to revive dancehall and even walking the runway (in some seriously long braids) at this month’s Caribbean Fashion Week.

Air Bolt: Watch Usain Dunk

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Bolt All Star Game

What can’t Usain Bolt do? Dunking is apparently not outside of the fastest man alive’s capabilities. The 6″5, 100- and 200-meter world record holder put on a show at the NBA’s Celebrity All-Star Game in Houston last night, with a breakaway dunk at the end of the first quarter. Sure, he traveled and, sure, his Eastern Conference team ultimately got pounded by Kevin Hart’s Western Conference-representing squad but Bolt’s dunk will be making highlight reels year round. Watch the dunk below, and check out more highlights from the game here.
