When you are the best in the world at something there is likely a reason why. Not only are you incredibly talented, but your dedication is intense and your focus laser sharp. Nothing gets in your way. Nothing keeps you from staying on top-- not even your girlfriend.

That appears to be the case with the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt of Jamaica, as he looks ahead to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Bolt took the world by storm four years ago when he won the gold medal and set new world records in the 100 meter dash and 200 meter dash. According to reports, the 25-year old wants to concentrate on repeating his gold medal performance in both events so he cut off his relationship of half a year with Slovakian fashion designer Lubica Slovak.

The current record in the 100 meter dash is 9.58 seconds set by Bolt in Berlin back in 2009. He also set the world record in the 200 meter in Berlin in 2009 at 19.19 seconds. Bolt has stated that he will run a 9.4 in the 100 meter dash this summer.

"If I dominate the Olympics, I'll be a living legend," Bolt said. "A living legend walking around. Sounds good."

Yes, Usain, you will be. However, your rapping skills leave something to be desired.
