Legends Unite! – Bolt meets Jordan at Super Bowl 49
Jamaica’s track and field superstar Usain Bolt has described meeting NBA legend Michael Jordan as an “honour”.
Bolt met Jordan at Super Bowl XLIX where he watched the New England Patriots, the team of Jamaican-born safety Patrick Chung, beat the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 to win the title for the first time in 10 years.
“Honour meeting Mr Clutch himself Michael Jordan,” Bolt posted with a photo via Instagram before the game at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona.
Hall of Famer Jordan, who now owns the Charlotte Hornets, had a storied NBA career that saw him leading the Chicago Bulls to six titles while winning a host of individual accolades including League MVP, Finals MVP, Defensive Player of the Year along with numerous scoring titles.
Bolt is a two-time defending Olympic games sprint double champion and double-sprint world record holder with personal bests of 9.58 seconds over 100m and 19.19 seconds over 200m respectively.
He is down to compete at the upcoming IAAF World Championships in Beijing later this year before retiring after the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
