 |  August 22nd, 2016

It was a great couple of weeks at Rio 2016, where America came out on top with the highest number of accumulated medals.

How Omega Timed and Captured Shauna Miller’s Dive on the Track to Take the Gold at Rio Olympics 2016

 |  August 16th, 2016

Last night at the Rio Olympics, Shaunae Miller dove for the finish line of the women’s 400M– beating Allyson Felix (a now 7-time Olympic Medalist) – and stealing the gold. Felix got the silver. Just a few short strides to the finish line of the grueling race, with Felix and Miller both running in perfect form, the 22-year-old Bahamian Miller simply dove forward with all her strength—falling to the ground across the line. Miller beat Felix by 0.07 seconds. Make no mistake here, she won, and it was legal, but the thing about this win is that it will go down as one of the most debatable Olympic moves when it comes to ethics. It was also a move that…

While he didn’t break any of his own personal  records, he is still known as the fastest person in the world. We had the chance to talk with Bolt before he went to Rio, and the 29-year-old  Jamaican sprinter who is also a Hublot brand ambassador said all he was looking for was to retain his title at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The soft-spoken 6’5″ runner has a genuine love of life–  indicative of his laid-back Jamaican upbringing. “We Jamaicans are not too stressed about…
