Today’s Video: Usain!

We will be back later today to cover this weekend's action at the London Games by numerous Latino, Latin American and Caribbean athletes.

The following video comes from reactions by dozens of Usain Bolt fans in a Jamaican bank branch witnessing and celebrating his win in the men's 100 meter dash yesterday:

Bolt's time of 9.63 seconds was an Olympic record and only 0.05 seconds behind the world record.

Bolt's countryman and training partner Yohan Blake won the silver medal while Justin Gatlin of the U.S. claimed bronze.

The Bolt-Blake finish came on the eve of Jamaican Independence Day and one night after defending women's 100 meter dash champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce successfully defended her gold medal.
