Jahvid Best's Olympic dream was struck down by lightning Saturday.
The former Lions running back finished seventh in his 100 meter heat, registering a time of 10.39 seconds. He did not qualify for the semifinals. Best was bested by none other than legendary Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, who cruised to a winning 10.07 time.
Best, a former high school sprinter, had been approved to run the 100 meters for Saint Lucia's Olympic track and field team. Best has a Saint Lucian father who holds dual citizenship.
