PLAYERS: Yohan Blake
What Yohan Blake's $500,000 watch won't tell you is that it's time to do some explaining. But that's exactly what time it is for Blake, as the Jamaican sprinter's spendy wristwear could land him in some hot water. Blake has been sporting a $500,000 Richard Mille tourbillon watch throughout the Olympics. Other than it being a little wacky to throw on such an expensive accessory before competing, no big deal, right?

Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake wore $500,000 watch during 100M

For those scoring at home, Yohan Blake’s custom-made Richard Mille watch is worth $5,000 per meter of the 100 meter race that scored him a silver medal.  Why would be wear such a thing?  Because he can.  My guess is that he figured that he had no chance to beat Usain Bolt (who clocked an Olympic record 9.63).  Blake ran a 9.75…did the weight of the watch factor in?  No...

Olympics: Usain Bolt dominates the 200m once again

Jamaica’s Usain Bolt did it once again winning gold in the men’s 200m. Bolt beat out countryman Yohan Blake in the 200m capturing the 200m as well as the 100m for the second straight Olympics. He finished with a time of 19.32 and was able to pull away from Blake on the last 30 meters as it was looking like Blake could pull off the upset. Now the only question that remains, will...
