Bolt Links Up With Merlene Ottey In London
The world’s fastest man – Usain Bolt recently met up with Merlene Ottey in London.
Ottey was the first female English-speaking Caribbean athlete to win an Olympic medal.
She accomplished that feat at the 1980 Moscow games. And throughout her career, she has won nine Olympic medals, which ties with Allyson Felix for the most by any woman in track and field history.
She has also been named Jamaican Sportswoman of the year 13 times between 1979 and 1995.
Both Ottey and Bolt currently boast 14 World Championships medals, but Bolt has a very good chance to increase his tally in the upcoming 4x100m men’s relay on Sunday.
Ottey’s 14 medals are comprised of 3 gold, 4 silver, and 7 bronze while Bolt has won 11 gold, 2 silver, and 1 bronze medal since 2007. Bolt posted an image of himself and Ottey today to Twitter with the caption: “The legendary Queen Merlene Ottey”
