Jamaican Sprinter Yohan Blake Wore a $500,000 Watch During the 100m Final Earlier This Week

Where are some places you might wear a $500,000 watch? An expensive dinner? Sure. A fancy banquet? Of course. The opening ceremony of the Olympics? Maybe. But, how about during the Olympics, like, during your event? Hell no, right? Well, then you're not like Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake, who reportedly rocked a custom $500,000 Richard Mille Tourbillon prototype watch while winning a silver medal in the 100m final earlier this week.

The only problem? Blake is now being investigated by the International Olympic Committee because Omega, not Richard Mille is the official sponsor of the Olympics. So, there's a good chance that Blake might have broken a big rule by rocking his $500,000 timepiece. Oops. Guess that wasn't the best style choice after all, eh, Yohan?
