WALKING TALL: High honours are old hat for Jamaica's Usain Bolt, the World's Fastest Man whose electrifying exploits in international men's sprinting are the stuff of legend. But even the 28-year-old champ was left beaming like a schoolkid when word came that the new-look Guinness Book of World Records has officially recognized him as the fastest human being on Planet Earth, using his phenomenal 9.58 seconds performance in the Men's 100M dash as their mark. Kudos to the big man! Bolt, who was recently in Florida lending some superstar power to Miami events put on by Hublot and Haute Living, respectively, has said that 2015 could see him lowering both his 100M and 200M (19.19 secs) records if he has his way and the conditions prove favourable. As everyone knows by now, Bolt is a man of surprises and astonishing talent, so consider us intrigued ― and totally expecting the unexpected.
> And while on the subject of champions, hearty congrats to the whiz kids of St. Richard's Primary, the 2014 winners of TV J's Junior Schools' Challenge Quiz competition. In the fading moments of a nail-biting finale against Mona Prep, the persistent St. Richard's team managed to surge ahead, eventually outscoring their rivals 33-25 to lift the hefty TV J trophy, presented by general manager Claire Grant.
