Welcome to BR5, your daily source for sports and pop culture news.

Countless men have used the line, "I need to focus on my career" as an excuse to end a relationship.  The world's fastest man on two feet is no different.

Usain Bolt ended his six-month relationship with a Slovakian fashion designer in order to focus on the upcoming Summer Olympics.  

The Jamaican swept the sprint events in the 2008 Bejing games and set world records in each race. The Jamaican sprinter currently holds records in the 100, 200 and the 4x100 meter relay. Among Bolt's accomplishments, he was named "Athlete of the Year" by the IAAF in 2011.

In a country where racism is major issue, Bolt was criticized in Jamaica when a picture of him kissing Slovak, who is white, appeared in a local newspaper.
