    Unhappy Usain Bolt's Arrogance Will Become His Achilles Heel...


    Although I think that Usain Bolt is one of the best things to happen to the world of track & field in a long time; what really disturbs me is his arrogance.

    I appreciate a bold, confident man, but I also have more respect for a man who understands humility.

    He makes me think of Muhammad Ali who had that type of confidence, but he was also funny with it.

    Bolt is just too cocky.

    My mother always say that if you get too high for yourself; something inevitably will bring you down.

    Bolt is fast on the field but I'd be more impressed to see him flourish as a person.

    lol I actually agree with this. I don't find him arrogant at all. I just think he's going an extra mile to be an entertainer.

    I liken Usain Bolt to Muhammed Ali, Ali had real chats in he mouth but he could of backed up his chats, same wid Bolt if you running off your mouth be able to back it up. I think Bolt just blasting the people who doubted him, who thought blake would out shine him.

    no I am not saying that he cant prove himself, but the same people who praise u and build u up will be the same to chew u and spit u out.

    I just noticed a marked increase in his ego over this games and this never reads well.

    i agree, and regardless of what people think i dont think he has crossed the line of being annoyingly arrogant yet. hes just really funny and confident just like most west indian men

    when you have a known druggie like Carl Lewis trying to cast aspersions on your abilities and suggesting that you are a druggie of his ilk... you might get arrogant too.... all of it is high camera antics... before that sort of race being watched by millions.. you psyche yourself up and your "Arrogance" is your ability to believe in yourself and get into the frame of mind to win races.... afterward in his interviews he was very humble and thanked everybody who helped him and the jamaican team to reach their goals...
    Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.

    I find him a bit to arrogant too... but that scene when he was being interviewed and another country was up on the podium receiving their medal and that countries national anthem was being played so he asked the interviewer to pause for a second so he could pay respects or whatever... that there showed me he does have a humble and respectful side to him as well and is not at all selfish
