STELLENBOSCH, South Africa (AP) It's no secret that Sebastian Coe is a good friend of Usain Bolt.
A photo of them together in Jamaica appears on both their Twitter pages this week, Bolt's hand resting casually on Coe's shoulder. The 100-meter world record holder describes Coe as ''Good Company'' in the post.
Yet Coe, a two-time Olympic middle-distance champion now running for president...

Call the race of the centuries: The world's fastest centenarian, 103-year-old Hidekichi Miyazaki, wants to run against world's fastest man Usain Bolt in the 100-meter dash.
"I'd love to race Bolt," Miyazaki told Agence France Presse during a recent Japan Masters Athletics competition in Kyoto.
He's certainly earned his place at the starting line. Born in 1910, Miyazaki was a...
Hidekichi Miyazaki is 103-years-old and his goal is to challenge Usain Bolt to a foot race.
Remarkably, Miyazaki only started taking up sprinting eleven years ago, at the age of 92. In that time, he’s come a long way. His 29.83 second time in the 100-meter dash earned Miyazaki a world record for sprinters over 100 years of age.
His reputation has also got him one of the best nicknames...
Usain Bolt always leaves time for a little bit of fun, even when he seconds away from winning yet another race.
In the moments prior to the 4×100 meter relay at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, Bolt was seen dancing to “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers.
Naturally, the crowd got into Bolt’s moves, singing and dancing along to the song.
In Jamaica, ‘daggering’ is considered to be one of the more popular dances of the country.
The ‘art of daggering’ begins with a man and a woman who engage in physical and dirty dancing.
The fastest man of the world Usain Bolt decided to show off his skills in an airport and appeared to love every minute of it. It seems the Jamaican sprinter loves to ‘dagger’.
Usain Bolt will compete again at the Golden Spike in Ostrava on June 17.
Organizers say the Jamaican great has yet to decide whether to run the 100 or 200 meters.
Bolt previously said his goal for this year was to break his own 200 world record of 19.19 seconds.
Bolt says "Ostrava is a fast track when the weather is good. I look forward to good weather and good performances in...
