Athlete
    (December 16, 1967- )
    Emigrated to Canada (1981)
    Olympic Gold Medalist (100M, Atlanta 1996)
    Founder/president of DBX Sports Management
    He was featured in commercials for Maple Leaf hot dogs (breakfast of champions, yessiree!).
    After defeating American sprinter Michael Johnson in the highly controversial (and overly hyped) sprint to determine the world's fastest man, he called his rival 'a chicken' (he later apologized for these comments).
    He said in Sports Illustrated: 'Canada is as blatantly racist as the United States.'
    The title of 'World's Fastest Man' was his by rights - it typically goes to the record holder for the 100M, where as Michael Johnson held the record in the 200M.
    His win at the Atlanta Olympic was a huge boost for Canadian sports. He took the spotlight off Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson, who tested positive for steroids and lost his gold medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympics
    After retiring from sprinting, he became a highly successful businessman.
    He is involved in athlete management, providing scholarships and funds for amateur athletes.
    He completed his post secondary education before focusing on athletics.
    His career was marked by several injuries.
