Usain Bolt takes a sprint through Temple Run 2

So Angry Birds has Star Wars characters? That's nice. Temple Run 2, the app that's one of the primary reasons for the decline in American productivity, has added the world's greatest runner to its roster. Yep, you can now run Usain Bolt through Temple Run 2. Bolt, the fastest character in the game, is available as a 99-cent add-on in the iTunes store, if you're so inclined.

"It’s an honor to be a part of such an established game," Bolt told the LA Times. "Many of my fans have told me that I should be a playable character in Temple Run, so when this opportunity was put before me, I had to say YES!"

Here, via Larry Brown Sports, is video of Bolt in action in the game:

I know everybody wants to keep wrestling in the Olympics, but I gotta be honest: if they moved out wrestling, gymnastics, swimming and pretty much everything else to make room for a real-world Temple Run, I'd be just fine with that.
