    Rather than speculating on the purpose of extensive wrapping of his right leg and left arm, I assume you are referring to his upside-down bib. A good-luck thing?

      May be superstitious, like a baseball player on a hot hitting streak... upside-down name on shirt, always with the right calf sleeve/left arm sleeve and headband... certainly has a unique style... whatever it is, it's working...

            Maybe he has the bib upside down, so he can make sure it's him.

              Yea after his 100m win they asked him about it. I also think I remember in a different interview him mentioned something similar as to why he wears the arm and leg sleeve.

                At least his shoes are on his feet.

                  It's obvious that he needs to be reminded of what number he is and meet he is at - thus looking down at his bib he can read it properly. Bad memory and apparently upside-down reading skills.

                    It's the Texas Relays, so some teams turn there bibs upside down meaning Horns down at the University of Texas. A&M does it also. Notice the Longhorns decal.

                      To re-use an old British joke, maybe he's secretly Australian?
