Usain Bolt has told a German tabloid newspaper that he used marijuana when he was a young teen.
The German tabloid Bild reported yesterday that the Jamaican sprint phenomenon used the recreational drug during his formative years, but he has not touched it since.
"When you're a child in Jamaica, you learn how to roll a joint," he said. "Everyone tried marijuana, including me, but I was really young."
I am wondering of all the statements he said in his interview why the foreign press wants to "dwell" on this one. I notice they didn't report him saying that he credits his speed from all the "natural foods" he has eaten as a child.
Folks always looking for news. People like Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt can't have "natural talent" their always has to be someone searching for something else.
With the World Championships set for Berlin in August, Bolt has his sights set on winning three gold medals again as he did in Beijing in the 100, 200, and men's 4x100 relay.
"I want to become a legend," he said. "I want to propel athletics to a new dimension."
