Some sporty stuff....PRETTY FLY FOR A WHITE GUY! ....


The Rabbit's Rabbit has never reported on anything remotely sporty (unless you count discussing Baseball player and RiRi's bf Matt Kemp) but I really wanted to bring something to your attention peeps!

Last night I sat and watched the European Championships 100m final. Ok, so there were no Jamaicans or Americans in it but I was still surprised to see a gangly WHITE guy in the line up.... boy did I get a pleasant surprise.....

Here is: Christophe Lemaitre..........

A 20 year old frenchman who has been running for only 5 years in the 100m and 200m races.

Last night, he beat Brit Dwaine Chambers to WIN THE 100M FINAL and become European Champion....brrrrapp!

On 9th July this year he became the first white person to run 100 metres in under 10 seconds. The next day he went on to equal the French record in the 200m with a time of 20.16s.

It's interesting to note that at the same age, neither Asafa Powell nor Carl Lewis had run as fast.

According to some sporting experts, his technique has ALOT to improve on, if he can run under 10seconds with a less than perfect style, it looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of this guy in the future!

I'm not saying he's rivalling Usain Bolt just yet lol....but it's good to see someone breaking the 'colour rules' of athletics no?
Watch the race here....
