A JAMAICA NAME COME F– MI? WTF REALLY A GWAAN

Blake wears custom $500,000 watch, IOC not happy

Jamaica’s Yohan Blake, with expensive timepiece (Reuters)

In a few hours, Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake could be a gold medalist in the 200m sprint, if he can find a way to top Usain Bolt. Yet Blake’s wrist might get much more attention from the International Olympic Committee than Bolt’s entire body thanks to something Blake wore during the 100 final: a custom, $500,000 watch made by designer Richard Mille.

As reported by TNT Magazine, the watch, which you can see in the photo on the right, is a customised sports watch in the green and yellow colours of the Jamaican flag. Officially, the timepiece is called a Richard Mille Tourbillion watch, and the one-of-a-kind piece of functional jewellery was designed specifically for Blake to wear at the Games.
Blake followed through on his part of the bargain, wearing the watch during the semi-finals and finals of the 100m dash, an event in which he finished second, behind countryman and world record holder Bolt.

Yet that has infuriated IOC officials, who have phenomenally strict regulations about what athletes are allowed to wear while competing at the games. According to strict sponsorship regulations, Olympic athletes are only allowed to wear gear that is part of their country’s sponsored apparel.
Similarly, if athletes use a piece of equipment that isn’t strictly clothing, they are required to use the official sponsor of the Olympics in that category.

Omega is the official watchmaker of the Olympic Games. Richard Mille is not. That may create a very large problem for Blake, who could now be facing a significant fine as he prepares for his final individual event of the London Games.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time Mille has sponsored a major athlete at a significant event.
In June, Rafael Nadal wore a $525,000 Mille Tourbillion watch during a match at the French Open. Similarly, American golfer Bubba Watson wore a $525,000 Tourbillion during a US PGA event, drawing the ire of commentators on a handful of golf blogs.

Yet neither Nadal nor Watson was facing any kind of a fine for their watch antics. Blake is, and could find out as soon as Thursday what kind of punitive fines he’ll be handed for wearing an unsanctioned watch.
After all, the IOC has to act fast, or else Blake could wear the watch again during the 200m on Thursday night. You might even say the IOC is on the clock … whether it’s made by Omega, Richard Mille or anyone else.

    SOME COMMENTS BY SPORTSCASTERS & READERS ON YAHOO SPORTS, & I QUOTE:-

    I wonder how many stupid whites broads will go to his room this time.

    SNOOP LION, where da weed at mon?

    Jamaican runners are dominating. They deserve all their credit. Im from USA and pulling for Spearmon to come with it but I can’t hate on Jamaica for being good. Just ashamed at how the media have treated Tyson Gay and some of the other sprinters who have represented well. World Champion and no one from USA hardly know it. USA devalue track & field so I hope Jamica run it.

    the american guy needs to get a medal.

    Them damn Jamaicans are fast! And good at growing and selling dope.

    Is anyone else tired of hearing about Bolt?

    See what a black man can do when he isn’t burdened down with a lifestyle of entitlements like in the USA. Liberals have killed the competitive edge in our blacks

    maddddddddddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! me a tell you!!!!!!! 1,2,3!!!!!!!!!! Proud fi be a Jamaican enuh!!!!!!!!!! maddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!

    Very fast man, wish he was more humble.
