Here's the results of our informal men's 100 meter poll...

The readers have spoken--you think that Usain Bolt (above/photo courtesy Puma media relations) of Jamaica, the current world record holder in the 100 meters, will win the Olympic 100 meter title!

Bolt picked up 44 percent of the vote, with countryman Asafa Powell garnering 32 percent, and American record holder Tyson Gay registering 20 percent. 4 percent of you feel someone else in the field will pull the upset and beat all three of them.

Your votes are consistent with the betting line posted on the British betting site,, which has the odds on Bolt at 6/4, Powell at 15/8, and Gay at 2/1.

Here's a video of Usain at the Puma party in Beijing with several Jamaican teammates and singer Paolo Nutini singing the Bob Marley classic, "One Love" (video courtesy Puma):

Look for another poll shortly!
