BackgammonMasters to Purchase Olympic Record Breaker Usain Bolt’s Running Shoes
August 21st, 2008 -- BackgammonMasters, a popular online backgammon, poker and blackjack gaming provider has announced that it wishes to purchase the gold running shoes of Jamaican Olympic record breaker Usain Bolt. BackgammonMasters congratulates Bolt on setting two new word records for the men’s 100 meter and 200 meter races at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games.
Bolt, nicknamed “Lightning Bolt” for his quick speed, is the first person ever to break two world records during the same Olympic event.
