WORLD STAGE: The latest updates on Jamaican legends Bob Marley and Usain Bolt

Record shape? Expect something special, says Bolt 
“I know that in Moscow I’ve not only got to win. All these guys are missing so I’ve got to run real fast to settle any doubts,” sprint king Usain Bolt notes in a recent interview with the UK’s Guardian. “I’d like to do something special in Moscow. Of course, it depends on the track, the weather, everything, but if I get my technique right, and a good start, anything is possible.” He continues, “That’s why I’ve been working so hard. I want to run fast and show the world what I can do.” 

Long live the King: Bob Marley Day celebrated in Los Angeles 
For the second consecutive year, August 7 was observed in the US city of Los Angeles, California, as Bob Marley Day, in honour of the late Jamaican reggae superstar. The declaration, made last years by the Los Angeles City Council, coincided with the DVD release of the acclaimed documentary Marley. Two of Bob’s children, Ziggy and Karen, were on hand to accept the proclamation from Councilman Tom LaBonge. “On behalf of my family and my father, I’d like to thank the council and the city of Los Angeles for this great honour,” said Ziggy. “We appreciate it. We are root in Los Angeles now, so we’re part of the city now.” (Pictured above, Bob Marley hangs backstage with the Beatles’ George Harrison at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood.)
