This will add to his endorsement earnings (as it should).

This guy is awesome.

A few years back I worked for Nissan and he was a sponsored athlete. We used to have him come in and shoot with us and he was always the coolest guy around, never any "celebrity" issues. Here is one we did:

Classy, as well as being the fastest man on the planet for 8 years running.

Yes from 2012 but certainly worth pointing out how he conducts himself.

Seems like a pretty classy guy with other sprinters who like and respect him.

With him in the blocks it's a race for second place.

The dude is a stud at what he does, just toying with the runner last night was awesome. I like to watch him. Some may see his antics as cocky, but I see it as more he is playing to the crowd. I will definitely be rooting for him tonight after seeing that!

He showed more respect for the US ...than many of its own citizens.

That is sign of character...and the foundation of what the Olympic spirit should be all about.
