Usain St. Leo Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter. He was born on 21 August 1986 in Sherwood Content, Trelawny, Jamaica. He is widely known as the fastest human alive, which is also the reason why he got the nickname “Lightning Bolt”. He is the first man to set a record for both 100 meters and 200 meters since 1977, when fully automatic time measurements became mandatory. He also set a world record in 4×100 relay along with his teammates. He is the current champion of all of these events.
Prior to the Beijing Games, Bolt had also won a lot of crowns and trophies when it came to 200 m races, starting from his youth. But he did not win any important awards when it came to 100m races until the 2008 Olympics. Bolt made a hat trick at the 2013 World Championships in Moscow when he won a gold medal for the third time in a row in 200 m races. He set a record for 100 m races by 9.69 seconds but broke his own record in 2009, by 9.58 seconds, which is still the highest to this day.
Bolt has appeared a lot since he came up in the spotlight. He was won numerous awards such as the IAAF World Athlete of the Year, Track & Field Athlete of the Year, and he also won Laureus World Sportsman of the Year thrice. Other than that, Bolt has won a lot of medals when it comes to races, in Olympics, World Championships and many other competitions. His medals accumulate to a total of 16 gold medals and 2 silver medals.
Bolt has endorsed many brands, but the most captivating one was his deal with Puma, which was signed in 2002. Puma released videos of Bolt’s records and races for promotions at the time of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Also, during the 100 m final of the Beijing Olympics, Bolt was wearing golden Puma Complete Theseus spikes that had “Beijing 100 m Gold” emblazoned across them. He has also endorsed other brands such as Virgin Media, Apple iOS.
After all of his success, on 14 February 2015, Bolt announced that he plans on retiring from his career of athletics after the 2017 World Championships in London.
