USAIN BOLT YAMS IT UP
After winning three gold medals in Beijing, Usain Bolt made a personal donation of $50,000 to the kids in the earthquake-stricken Sichuan Province. Bolt said he had seen reports of the 8.0 magnitude earthquake that struck the area on May 12, killing close to 70,000. “It makes me feel sorry for the victims, so I ask my management team to do something,” said Bolt after delivering the check to Liu Xuanguo, secretary-general of the Red Cross Foundation of China. “They are kids. They deserve a better future,” Bolt said, “I hope they can still enjoy themselves, because they are still kids. And, it’s great for kids to live in joys. I just want to help them. I’m looking forward (to) more people coming out and helping them,” Bolt said, as he stood next to several kids confined to wheelchairs due to ‘quake-inflicted injuries.’
Usain had me when he won the first gold, and sealed the deal when he said “its great for kids to live in joys.” We should all live in joys, no? And we should all take a hint from the Jamaican sprinters. The Caribbean country’s five gold medals at the Games all came from sprinters. Usain Bolt: double gold medals with two world records in the men’s 100m and 200m sprints…Veronica Campbell-Brown won the women’s 200m…Shelly-Ann Fraser and other two Jamaican women swept medals in over 100m…Melaine Walker kicked in another by breaking the Olympic record in the women’s 400-meter hurdles….
“We have a tradition, we have natural talents, We are the sprinter factory of the world,” said Olivia Grange, Jamaica’s minister of information, culture, sports and youth. “You know why? We eat healthy and good food, lots of yams. Lots of greens, lots of fishes, good Jamaican food and clean fresh air.”
Yams? Lots of yams? According to researchers at USPlabs in Denton Texas, the secret to a great sprinting juice is in the yams…an exotic yam called the Trelawny yam to be precise.
It wasn’t long ago that Usain’s father, Wellesly Bolt, claimed that the yam was partially responsible for Usain’s electrifying speed, and now researchers are backing him up…They say there is ‘enormous scientific credence’ to Wellesly Bolt’s claim about the Trelawny yam. “Scientists have known for years yams contain high amounts of steroidal glycosides, which are naturally occurring steroid alkaloids,” said Jacob Geissler of USPlabs.
In the early 1930’s, yams were used to first synthesize testosterone because the chemical structure of the yam is identical to human testosterone. This particular Jamaican yam could possibly contain the most potent steroidal glycosides on earth. (It’s no wonder they have a Trelawny yam festival in Jamaica.) Jacob Geissler of USPlabs: “The problem for scientists is that we could never liberate all those powerful steroid alkaloids and make them usable, until now…we just got finished with a clinical trial study on naturally occurring steroidal glycosides and the results were staggering. In just 30 days test subjects gained close to 7 pounds of lean mass and increased their strength by up to 30%. And these stunning results were achieved by very experienced lifters with past steroid use…what we were able to do is cleave the sugar molecule off the steroidal glycoside and liberate its enormous nitrogen-retaining effect, and as everybody knows, steroids dramatically increase nitrogen in the muscle cell making it bigger, stronger and faster.”
Yams, the new steroid? Are USPlabs the next BALCO? According to ‘expert trainer and conditioning coach’ to over 400 professional athletes, Jon Doyle: “I’m using it on some of my pro ball players and they’re getting huge steroid-like results with no steroid side effects. Some of them are getting so big and strong their agents have phoned me swearing up and down I’m giving them real juice. I had one young player who gained 13 pounds of muscle in 30 days and lowered his 60 yard dash time by .3 seconds!” (Prweb)
Yam it up kids…I’m taking a few days off…
