One of history’s greatest sportsmen, motivational speaker Usain Bolt knows that success is earned through discipline and resourcefulness. A sought-after speaker, Usain Bolt only considers a handful of select engagements every year.
Usain Bolt is known across the globe as the world’s fastest human. His 2009 record in the 100m sprint has never been seriously challenged, and he is an eight-time Olympic gold medalist. Bolt’s 11 world championships between 2009 and 2015 are an all-time record.
Bolt’s journey started in Jamaica, when by age 12 he established himself as his school’s fastest runner at 100m and above. Still, he preferred team sports, especially cricket and soccer, until he found greater success as a sprinter.
Good showings in regional competitions earned Bolt invitations to the World Championships at the youth, junior, and senior levels. After becoming the first junior sprinter to run a sub-20 second 200m, Bolt turned pro at age 18.
As a professional, Bolt found that raw talent and youthful exuberance weren’t enough to get him to the top. His technique needed refinement, and the scoliosis that had affected his back since childhood threatened to become an issue. So he changed his workout regimen, focusing on strengthening his core and offsetting the downside of his greatest asset: Bolt’s legs are so long that he can cover 100 meters in five fewer strides than most competitors, but his long legs also mean less explosive starts out of the block. Bit by bit, Bolt developed the training regime that helped him uncover his very best.
The results are legendary. Four-time Laureus World Sportsman of the Year, six-time IAAF Male Athlete of the Year, and countless other awards. By the time he retired in 2017, Bolt was one of the most famous and popular people on earth.
In addition to occasional appearances as a keynote speaker, Usain Bolt has turned his attentions to business. He worked with Puma to launch his own clothing line, and Hublot makes his signature watch. Bolt also sells shaving products through his company Champion Shave and owns the Tracks & Records restaurant in Kingston. At the height of his athletic career, he created the Usain Bolt Foundation.
