Now that the New York City Marathon has ended we can all go back to doing what we do normally: obsess over Usain Bolt. The Lightning has been taking a break from JA to hang out in Kenya for a few days, where he has "already impressed local children with his football skills, and become an honorary Maasai warrior," according to the BBC, further proving he is our second most admired jedi knight/sensai/dream date slightly after Barack Obama. But Bolt's moved up like 18 notches on our list after his recent adoption of A. Baby. Cheetah... as part of a conservation effort focusing on sustaining the environment in Africa via the Long Run, a new campaign he is launching. Appropriately, he christened the cheetah "Lightning Bolt," and we immediately began singing the Vybz Kartel verse "BOLT / LIGHTNING BOLT," weirding out our coworkers for the 49th time today. Watch a dubiously edited YouTube of Bolt "beating" a less adorable cheetah in a race after the jump.
