Usain Bolt aka Shango?

By now the world has grown accustomed to the iconic stance of Usain Bolt with his body channeling the divine fire of the heavens in the form of a lightning bolt.

And the more, I see the familiar pose, the more it reminds me of the original archetype of the lightning bolt harnesser, Shango.

From Orisha.net: "Perhaps the most 'popular' of the orishas, Shangó rules over lightning, thunder, fire, the drums and dance. He is a warrior orisha with quick wits, quick temper and is the epitomy of virility. He is an extremely hot blooded and strong-willed Orisha that loves all the pleasures of the world: dance, drumming, women, song and eating."

Sounds familiar?
