Prince Harry cheats, defeats Usain Bolt in race (video)

Chris Chase
Fourth-Place Medal

A false start and apathy aided in Prince Harry's upset of Usain Bolt in a Tuesday match race in Kingston, Jamaica.

The prince jumped out to an early start during his appearance with Bolt, sprinting 50 meters down the track before the world record holder caught up and playfully chided him for the infraction. Then, as you'd expect, they performed Bolt's lightning move.

In their second "race," Harry got a clean start and still blew away the three-time gold medalist.

This bodes well for Asafa Powell and Tyson Gay's chances in London, as well as for Prince Harry's personal gold-medal dreams.

The British royal was in the country as part of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee tour. He and Bolt raced in front of students at the University of Kingston.
