Animated tribute to the fastest man alive. Usain Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter and eight-time Olympic gold medalist. He holds both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records!

Bolt improved upon his second 100m world record of 9.69 with 9.58 seconds in 2009. He has twice broken the 200 metres world record, setting 19.30 in 2008 and 19.19 in 2009.

When the Jamaican superstar bends one elbow and straightens the other at an angle toward the skies, crowds rise in appreciation. This is known as Usain Bolt’s signature move, the “Lighting Bolt”. This pose remains the central act of the sprinter’s identity and celebrations.

Cheetahs may be the fastest land animals on Earth. Sarah the cheetah has shattered the world record for the standing 100-meter dash, clocking a time of 5.95 seconds—making Olympian Usain Bolt’s world record of 9.58 seconds look positively stodgy by comparison.
