Usain Bolt: The World’s Fastest Man

August 6th, 2011 Comments off

Usain Bolt has new book entitled “Usain Bolt: My Story: 9.58: Being the World’s Fastest Man” A skinny kid from the Jamaican parish of Trelawny, Usain Bolt’s life changed in August 2008 when the Olympic men’s 100-meter starter pistol was followed just 9.69 seconds later by his streak across the finish line and the first of his three gold medals. In a highly illustrated celebration of his influences, background, and career trajectory, he shares his story of growing up playing cricket and soccer, and discovering that he could run fast—very fast. He shares stories of his family, friends, and the laid-back Jamaican culture, and reveals what makes him tick, where he gets his motivation, and where he takes his inspiration. He tells of the dedication and sacrifices required to get to the top, and also discusses fast food, partying, dancehall music, fast cars, and that signature lightning bolt pose.

Usain Bolt won gold in the 100-meter, the 200-meter, and the 4×100-meter relay at the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympic Games, becoming the first man to set world records in all three events at a single Olympics. At the 2009 Berlin World Championships he claimed the sprinting double, becoming the first man to hold the 100-meter and 200-meter World and Olympic titles at the same time, and breaking the world records for both the 100-meter (9.58 seconds) and the 200-meter (19.19 seconds).
