Usain St. Leo Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter, Widely regarded as the fastest person ever, he is the first man to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records since fully automatic time measurements became mandatory in 1977. He is the best sprinter in his time.
In 2013, Bolt said he planned to hang up his running shoes after the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Usain Bolt has also announced that he plans to retire after the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London.
In a statement the six time champion Usain Bolt will retire after the London World Athletics Championships in 2017. I ve already discussed it with my coach. I can concentrate on that, and on retiring on a winning note.
In the record book Bolt holds the world records for the 100m, 9.58 seconds, the 200m, 19.19 seconds, and the 4x100m relay, 36.84 seconds, and talked of his drive to beat those times in 2015.
He said in a conference I m now a legend, I m also the greatest athlete to live. I am in the same category as Michael Johnson.
After years of dominance in sprinting, many others have also rushed to declare Bolt the best ever. But not all agree. Bruce Jenner, currently better known as being one of the Kardashian clan but winner of the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, has said that Bolt is merely the best sprinter ever. He can t pole vault, he can t throw anything, Jenner said. That s an athlete.
Usain Bolt said in a interview.I live for competition. I thrive on competition. I live to compete against the best. It means a lot when you beat the best. If everything goes well this season. In my life anything is possible. If I can get myself in good shape, it should be wonderful this season.
