MOSCOW 2013 Day 8: Usain Bolt three peats in Moscow, a video salute from The Shoe Addicts

What is it about Usain Bolt? Really, why do we care so much about this tall, fast, and fun, Jamaican? 

Usain Bolt does not make it look easy, he makes it look fun. Whether he is running the 100 meters, the 200 meters, or the relay, Usain Bolt uses his athletic talents to run very fast, and, with style. 

Perhaps it is the fun that Usain has afterwards. But, most of all, I believe, it is in the races where, Usain Bolt has to work hard to win, he has to pump those arms and lift those knees, and where, for those brief seconds, he runs at an other worldly pace, that makes fans catch their breath and look at each other in amazement, as the fastest man alive wins not once, not twice, but, three times, in Moscow. 

Of course, The Shoe Addicts were going to do a video on him. This is the Shoe Addicts salute to Day 8!
