Six times Olympic champion Usain Bolt is described as the most naturally gifted athlete the world has ever seen. The Olympic speaker certainly caught the attention of the world when he won three gold medals and broke three world records at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.
He went down in history as the only man ever to break the records for the 100m, 200m and 4 x 100m events at the same Olympic Games. He then broke his own 100m and 200m records the following year at the IAAF World T&F Championships in Berlin.
As if that wasn’t enough, Bolt came back four years later at the London Olympic Games and won his titles all over again – breaking the world record for the 4 x 100m yet again. Not surprisingly, the Olympic speaker from Trelawny, Jamaica, soon won the sobriquet of the world’s fastest man.
Usain’s achievements on the track are not just confined to that short timeframe, of course, and he has wowed crowds around the world for many years, winning World Championship gold medals in 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015 and a Commonwealth Games gold 2014. The Olympic speaker’s total medals haul is 21 golds and five silvers. He has also won the title of IAAF Male Athlete of the Year no fewer than five times. Moving outside the sport, Bolt has opened his own restaurant, set up the Usain Bolt Foundation and created his own branded clothing alongside Puma.
