Usain’s last bolt to the finish line!


Usain Bolt, the fastest human EVER, will hang up his running spikes this weekend. Yes he is retiring!

30 year old Bolt is a naturally gifted sprinter who has shattered and left an unparalleled legacy. No athlete has run with such speed over such a long career. Unbeaten in three Olympics, Bolt is most famous for achieving  the ‘Triple Triple’ at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.  (Yikes! He won the 100m, 200m and 4x100m races at 3 consecutive Olympic Games.)

This past weekend was his last solo competitive race. He was hoping to win the 100 m at the World Championships in London and end his career with his 20th gold. Unfortunately, he lost to Justin Gatlin (USA) and Christian Coleman (USA) and had to settle for the Bronze.

Usain Bolt’s stunning world records:

    1. 100m – 9.58 seconds
      Berlin, 2009
    2. 200m – 19.19 seconds
      Berlin, 2009
    3. 4x100m – 36.84 seconds
      London, 2012

In addition to nine Olympic Games gold medals, Usain won eleven World T&F Championships titles.

Bolt will complete one final race before hanging up his spikes. He will participate in the 4x100m relay race on Saturday, August 12th. After that, Bolt will walk away from the sport forever.
