RE: Bolt is the man - Calls for lifetime bans for drug cheats, says he couldn't have beaten Justin Gatin this year
I don't know if I've ever formally interviewed him.

I hung out with him backstage at a Puma event prior to Beijing with just me, Matt Taylor (then of Puma now of tracksmith) and Bolt.

Here is our coverage of that event: https://www.letsrun.com/2008/rojo0806.php

Bolt was cool. This was before he won all the golds and was real famous.

Matt told him I ran letsrun.com and Bolt apologized and said he didn't really do a lot on the Internet except for Facebook and games.

He then asked if I knew Kevin Garnett. Said he thought he was cool, famous and wanted to meet him. I laughed and said something along the lines of, "hey if you win the 100, 200 and 4 x 100, you'll be a way bigger deal than him."

He was like "You think so?" I was like "Yes."

On my way out, I said something along the lines of but if you really want to be a legend do the 4 x 400 as well.

Later that year, Weldon would later attend a Celtics Game with Bolt and Taylor where Bolt met Garnett:

PS. Oh yeah one more thing I remember. One of the interpreters was a very attractive girl. Bolt certainly didn't hide the fact he was just staring at her throughout.
