BRISTOL, Conn, U.S.A. -- Usain Bolt, the world's fastest human, raced against 11 ESPN employees at the company's Bristol, Conn. campus today. The race included two Sportscenter anchors. After a “practice run,” in which all but one ESPN worker ran but Bolt didn't, he easily mosied to a first-place finish. After his victory, he quipped, “Do I get a medal or something?” The “ESPNers” had varied excuses, including that they were winded from the first run and that their shoes were untied. ESPN employees were packed five deep along the 100 meter course on a paved road. -- Kiernan Majerus-Collins

YJI senior reporter Kiernan Majerus-Collins took these photographs at the event:
