Dept. of Oddly Appropriate Names

Usain Bolt, from Jamaica, took gold and set world sprinting records in both the 100 and 200 meter run.

Of course they're calling him Lightning Bolt.

It's one of those "truth is stranger than fiction" things. If you put him in a serious book, people would say his name was too corny.

Reality isn't bound
by the rule that names shouldn't sound
like an overly cute
pun on a stand-out attribute.
