Bolt Statue Unveiled In Kingston
The long awaited unveiling of the statue of sprint legend Usain Bolt took place outside the National Stadium in Kingston on Sunday (December 3).
The statue was initially scheduled to be unveiled during Heritage Week but was postponed due to poor weather.
It was designed by renowned Jamaican sculptor Basil Watson who is also sculpting statues of Asafa Powell, Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce and Veronica Campbell Brown.
The retired sprinter is the first person to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records since fully automatic time became mandatory.
He also holds the world record as a part of the 4 × 100 metres relay. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events. Because of his dominance and achievements in sprint competition, he is widely considered to be the greatest sprinter of all time.
Bolt said via Instagram “Thank you Jamaica. Truly humbled.”
