Usain Bolt has an estimated net worth of $30 million dollars
Jamaican Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt has an estimated net worth of $30 million dollars. He is 6’5″ and weighs 207 pounds. Usain Bolt was born August 21, 1986 in Trelawny, Jamaica. As a boy he excelled as a cricket player and sprinter. His ability to tun fast was noticed by his school coaches early on. By fourteen, his athleticism got the attention of former Olympic sprinter Pablo McNeil. McNeil started to coach the boy and prepare him for the Olympics.
At 15, Bolt entered the 2002 World Junior Olympics in Kingston, Jamaica. He won the gold medal for the 200-meter race. This win made him the youngest junior gold medalist ever. After achieving some fame for his highly publicized win, the public nicknamed him “lightening Bolt” in reference to how he ran at lightening speed. Between 2004 and 2006, Bolt was plagued with an unfortunate hamstring injury which prevented him from preforming to the best of his ability. Usain worked hard to get to his highest potential, and in 2007 he broke Donald Quarrie’s 30-year record when he won two silver medals at the World Championship in Japan for the 200-meter run. This boosted his esteem and passion for running again.
In the Beijing Summer Olympics, Bolt broke the world record in the 100-meter run, winning in only 9.69 seconds. At the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, he won the gold medal in the men’s 100-meter race. This time he ran the race in 9.63 seconds, beating out his old record. He also competed in the men’s 200-meter race, where he won the gold medal as well. Bolt is the first male sprinter to win the 100 and 200-meter races in consecutive Olympic games. He also is the first man to ever win two consecutive gold medals in double sprints. Lastly, he is the first man to ever set three world records in one Olympic Games competition.
Due to Bolt’s amazing athletic abilities, he has won two IAAF World Athlete of the Year Awards, Track & Field Athlete of the Year, and the Laureus Sportsman of the Year Award. When discussing his athletic career, Bolt told CBS news,” It’s what I came here to do. I’m now a legend. I’m also the greatest athlete to live. I’ve got nothing left to prove.” Nobody has proven him wrong yet.
