- n. Belgian cosmologist who proposed the big-bang theory of the origin of the universe (1894-1966)
“Lemaitre" or Chambourcy Short-Stemmed, catalogued by Vilmorin in 1890.”
“Making drugs more available, as this report suggests, will make it harder to keep our communities healthy and safe," spokesman Rafael Lemaitre said in a statement.”
“After one year of training, aged 16, Lemaitre clocked 10.96sec over the 100m.”
“That last utterance sums up Lemaitre's likeable innocence, and he admits that 12 months ago he did not believe he could be one of the best.”
“Following his success at the European Championships last summer – the first sprinter to win three European gold medals – Lemaitre's father received a letter from the Ku Klux Klan inviting his son on a "courtesy" visit of the white supremacist group in their homeland of Texas.”
“Aged 15, at a local sports festival, Lemaitre came across a stand where kids could try running over 50m.”
“This year Lemaitre has already broken his personal best to run 9.96sec in the early part of the season and in poor conditions.”
“Growing up in Aix-les-Bains Lemaitre tried many sports but did not fit easily into a team mentality.”
“Perhaps not, but Lemaitre's rise to fame – and subsequent lucrative sponsorship deals – has led some black athletes in France privately to question the fairness of a sprinter benefiting from such commercial success, despite not making even the top 10 fastest men in the world.”
“The attention was a lot to deal with for an introvert such as Lemaitre, and his first interviews verged on the monosyllabic.”
